Turn a Clearance Aisle Frame in to a Custom Home Decor Piece!
Whenever I'm feeling like I need a little kick in the mojo I head to the Hobby Lobby clearance aisle. With cool home decor pieces at super cheap prices I can add a little Plaid Crafts paint or cut out some vinyl with my Cricut Explore Air and create something fun without having to start from scratch. Last week I found a frame (regularly $17.99 on sale for $6.82) and was able to give it a glitzy gold makeover!

    Mask off area to be painted with masking/painters tape. In this case the glass was attached to the frame so I taped along the edge of the glass as well.

    Step 3

    Apply several coats of glitter paint - allow to dry between coats. This paint looks like glue with glitter in it - so it will go on milky white. I did three coats - the more coats you apply the more glittery your project will be!

    Step 4

    Create your phrase in Cricut Design Space, cut out of glitter vinyl and apply directly to the mat. For glitter vinyl you need strong grip transfer tape.

    Reassemble the frame and add your photo.
