Do you have piles of children's artwork laying around? My daughters are all teenagers, but I saved lots of their precious drawings from when they were little.
I wanted to frame a painting that they all made together... I have saved it for years and finally did something with it.
I bought the frame at Goodwill... it was just plain hideous. It was $3.99 though, and that fit my budget!
I started by taking the frame apart and painting it a bright red. Next I covered the mat that came with the frame. I used an amazing piece of fabric that I bought at http://featheredstarquilt.com/
I laid the mat on the wrong side of the fabric and sprayed the mat with fabric adhesive. Oh my, I love that stuff.
Cut a hole in the middle, and then a diagonal line to each corner. Wrap the fabric around the mat, wrapping it tightly. I adhered it with fabric adhesive.
Voila, a little masterpiece... I will show you the finished project, with the frame later this week. I will be sharing this project and lots more on fox 9 this Saturday, August 4th at 7:45 a.m. Hope you will tune in!
