DIY Alphabet Frame
- May Arts Velvet Ric Rac
- May Arts Sheer Frayed Flower
- Stampendous! Aged Rose Embossing Enamel
- Stampendous! Distressed Type Cling Stamp
- Thrifted Frame
- Colonial White Pigment Ink
- Flower Centers
- Heat gun
- Spray Adhesive
To begin disassemble the thrifted frame so you have the frame itself (mine was gold), the mat, and the glass. Clean the glass thoroughly and set aside. Spray frame with spray adhesive and cover with the Aged Rose Embossing Enamel from Stampendous! Be sure to do this over a sheet of paper or something so you can put all the extra back in the bottle! Use your heat gun to emboss the entire frame.
Stamp the Distressed Type Stamp on kraft cardstock with colonial white pigment ink and trim down to size.
Tape the trimmed panel to the back of the mat that came with the frame.
Turn mat over and adhere velvet ric rac around the panel. Be sure to miter your corners as you work.
Assemble frame with glass and any backboard it may have had. Adhere the Sheer Frayed Flowers to the top corner of the frame and adhere flower centers.
This makes a wonderful gift for a new baby or even for a young child or a teacher. You can always change out the colors to make it work best for your recipient! I was really excited to see how beautifully the frame turned out after covering it entirely with embossing enamel! I hope you give this fun project a try!
