I love the idea of making wall-art from your Christmas cards. Since all of mine were sitting in a stack not being admired, I decided to try my hand at displaying them. I saw this picture from Pottery Barn a while back and liked it.
I started with some old unwanted art of my husband's. The frame was ugly and the picture inside didn't lay flat. (I can not do one thing without Annalise hovering over me- she is quite the busybody. Hence, she is in my picture, in pajamas, one church shoe, and blowing a snot bubble.)
Soon enough, it looked great though!
All I did was remove the glass and spray paint it (don't tell my husband- I may or may not be having an affair with Rustoleum's 'Heirloom White')
and hot-glued dollar-store twine across the back of it. I swiped some dollar-store poinsettias and a little dollar-store bird off my Christmas tree and attached them with pop-dots to the frame to make it look Christmas-y.
As I was looking for my box of clothes-pins to spray paint silver and hang the pictures with, I ran across my box of silver clips I use to make Annalise's hair bows. Even better! So I used those instead. This project cost me a grand total of NOTHING! I had it all around the house. :)
