Bare to Beautiful...oh yeah!

...say that "oh yeah!" in the title like to Kool-Aid man to get the full effect. Go ahead...I'll wait a minute! :D

Alright, so I started with these wooden frames from Michaels ($1 each), and the little black frame from the Dollar Tree (also $1)
Then I just used stuff I had around the house to decorate them and then made the for Valentines Day decorations (as pictured). First I found some scrapbook paper I liked, traced around the frames and cut it out. Then I just put some ModgePodge on the wooden frame, put the paper on top, and used an old gift card to smooth out the bubbles. To seal it off and make it a little glossy I put another layer of ModgePodge on top of the paper.

You can see these have Valentine's quotes/embellishments on them. These pictures are a little old, but luckily I attached the hearts with a glue dot so they can be changed out with the season and I can use the frames year round (they're currently waiting to be decorated for Spring...yes, I know I'm a bit behind :D)!


  1. I love those Michael cheapy frames. I use them all the time.

    Yours look fantastic!! I love that paper you used on the bottom one, it's really unique. :)

  2. Jessica (great name btw - that's my daughters name) :), I'd like to follow you, but I don't see a place on your blog to do that.

  3. Thanks for pointing out the following thing! I'm new to Blogger and not really sure about all of the cool things there are! I think I fixed it,and appreciate you looking at my projects! :)
