Personalized Frame!!

I had an old Ikea frame that I was no longer using, but did not want to it throw out.

Here is what I came up with:

I started off with this frame:

Using a bit of sand paper, I sanded the frame to make it a slightly rough so that the paint would stick.  I put a coat of primer on it before I went ahead and did two coats of white paint.

To do the inside of the frame I purchased:

– Natural chipboard letters and flourishes:

– Delta Ceramcoat Pink acrylic paint and Stickles Diamond crafting sparkles:

– And one sheet of White Bristol board.

I painted all the letters I needed along with the flourishes with two coats of pink paint.  Once they were completely dry, I applied the Stickles sparkles with the help of a small paint brush.

I measured the inside of the frame and cut the Bristol board according to those dimensions.  Once that was done, I glued the letters and flourishes onto the Bristol board with the help of liquid glue.

I then inserted the Bristol board into the frame and hung it up.

Voilà:
