For our young womans church activity a few nights ago, we made some personalized picture frames for our Mom's for Mother's Day!
I don't think I'm actually going to give this one to my Mom, but we had lots of extra unfinished $1 frames from Michaels, so I jumped in on the fun, and made this perfectly purple picture frame!
So nice to do a crafty "small" project. LOL.
I just painted the picture frame deep purple, sanded the edges, cut out some great paper, and glued it to the frame.
I made this cute little flower by cutting little circles (from the opposite side of the paper) crumpling them up, and then layering them together. I needed a flower punch, but didn't have one.... this was my solution. lol
Then I took some light blue embroidery thread and sewed a button through the paper layers... and then glued the whole thing on the frame.
I also glued on this cute strand of pearls, around the inside. Just gave it a little touch of texture!
Is it so dumb how something so little can make you so happy? lol.
I kept looking at this frame today and thought... "Ooo! That's so cute!"
I think I'm really drawn to the purple color, since I don't usually use it. It's just... different.
K... here are my fun thrifty finds.
This OH SO CUTE chicken wired basket was found at the Salvation Army, for .50 cents!
Didn't have to do ANYTHING to it! Woo-hoo!
I'm still trying to figure out what the heck to put in it, once these rose balls retire...
any suggestions? I already have all those cute balls in that apothecary jar, next door... so more decorative balls are kinda out...
Do you LOVE this plate! I do, I do!
I got it from Pier One Imports...
I KNOW, right!? They are usually SO overpriced and have kinda TOO funky stuff for my taste, but this plate was RIGHT on the money!
Only $5.00. Nice!
I love the color AND design.
This last one is actually JUST the lamp shade. I needed one for this cute lamp, that I'm thinking of putting on the entryway table. And found this great shaped one at Salvation Army for only $1.00.
( it says $5.00 but the lady only charged me a buck!... whatever. lol)
I plan on trying some fabric covering techniques here.... I'm a bit nervous and def. need to google THAT! :)
It can't be TOO hard right? It's just a simple shape!?
Okay... well... Have a good weekend everyone!
Happy Mother's Day!
