I found a couple of glittery reindeer at the dollar store (two for one), picked up a couple of frames from the dollar store as well, spray painted them black, a couple of photo mats and then used an old red t-shirt for my backing.
So I got a little lazy and duct taped the fabric right on the back of the frame. For me, this project was just all about having fun and nothing really serious so I just went with it. After all, these are dollar store frames and no one will ever see this back - except now everyone has.
At first I left them like this and then decided they looked a little boring and I wanted to add something fun. So I decided to paint a couple of photo mats to add a little whimsy.
One I painted with stripes, I just penciled off my stripes and painted in - I would suggest taping off and not free handing if you want a cleaner crisp edge.
I also made a little pattern out of a piece of card stock and traced it on my other mat and then painted this one as well.
And then I had these fun little guys and I know exactly where they will be going.
I have more christmas things in the mix and will be showing you what I plan on doing with these soon. I may or may not already have some christmas decorations up in our house, we are six weeks from Christmas so I am using that excuse.
Hope you guys have a wonderful wednesday!
