I bought these a few years ago at Big Lots I believe. I kept thinking....hmmmm what can I do with these things.
Now that its fall and getting chilly out we are stuck in the house. So I get tired of looking at the same decorations, but don't want to spend tons of money (or no money at all )on all news things. I am trying to think of things to redecorate with what I already have. So here is what I did with these bad boys.
I printed out pictures...I already have a printer and the paper for it. The canvas was too big for a 5x7 but to small for an 8x10. So I printed out 8x10 pictures and had to cut them to fit. That was the hard part. I glued them on and then took modge podge and put a coat on them so I looked more like canvas than just a picture glued on there.
They are still a little wet thats why the lines are so distinct here. I then took black ribbon and glued it around the outside edge to cover up the color of the background.
Took some thinner ribbon and tied it on the hook on the back. Then made a bow to tie at the top. Then just hung them on the wall. Yeah the bows are kind of different but I find it hard to make 2 bows look the same much less 4. They also look uneven in the picture but they aren't. I guess I didn't get the right angle!
I also wanted to pass along a blog of a friend of mines. She is selling Close to my Heart scrapbooking material. Check out her blog right here. She also has a give away going on right now. Check out her page when you get a chance.
