Dollar store Frames

Here is an easy and cheap craft to do. I have seen several of these done in all sorts of ways here on blog land. Here is my take.

First, get some $1 store frames. {Mine are all 5X7}
You will also need vinyl letters, or large stickers.  Heck if you are good at painting, you could even paint the letters on the glass.  I cut my vinyl letters with my silhouette which I don't use nearly as much as I would like to.

Note:  You can have the letters on the inside of the glass or the outside.  If you desire it on the inside, don't for get to cut vinyl letters out backwards.  I forgot about that and had to re cut my letters because I wanted them on the inside.
OK, back to the project.  I took the glass and backings out of the frames and spray painted the frames black.  I then stuck the vinyl letters on the inside of the glass.  I then reinstalled the glass back into the frame with hot glue.  You can put the backings and everything back into the frames if you don't like the see through look.  In this case, you would not have to glue the glass to the frames.  Let it dry if you glue the glass in.

Once everything was dry, I arranged the frames side by side until I got the look of the frames I wanted.  I then glued the frames together side by side.

Let dry and that was it.  Simple!  You could also just hang the frames individually on the wall without gluing them together.  Have fun with it.

  1. This is so cute. I love how you used different fonts and sizes for the letters.
