Burlap Frames

When Chelsie and I went to the DI we found  some lovely picture frames. I think I paid around a dollar for each frame. Chelsie really wanted to leave the pictures in the frame.  Don't worry Chels, I saved the pictures for you!

I headed over to Hobby Lobby ( I think they know me by name) and grabbed some Krylon  Blue Ocean Breeze spray praint, and burlap. After the frames were painted I applied a layer of brown gel stain (also from Hobby Lobby).  I grabbed an old rag and wiped off the excess stain.

I took out the lovely pictures that the frames came with, grabbed some cotton backing and burlap, and traced them to be the same size as the pictures.

I put the burlap on top of cotton and hot glued the both of them to the back of the frame.

Remember these pins I made? I am using these to decorate the frames.

And waaalaaa there you go burlap frames.  Use them for pictures, your child's art work, or a great way to hold your to do list.

I hope you like them! love, christy
