Is it weird that I am thinking of Christmas in April? Does it make me a total freak that I am already making holiday crafts? Well, if the answer is yes...then I'm just going to own my crazy ways and embrace it. Because that's how I roll and I'm good like that.
Y'all are probably soooooo tired of seeing all these frames I've been making lately. But I'm having fun with their versatility and finding new ways to spruce them up. You can find frames of all shapes, sizes, and colors at your local craft store or even a yard sale. Then you can use fabric, scrapbook paper, or even wrapping paper under the glass to give it a little extra pizazz. It can be completely customized to match your color scheme or you could keep it nice and neutral so that it could work in almost any room. For this particular one, I used a black frame I found at Walmart. I usually don't buy my frames there, but I loved the shape of this one. I like that it's an odd shape and size. And it works beautifully with this sweet nativity scene. Again, I found this font online at Lettering Delights. I downloaded and installed it on my computer. Then I used my Sure Cuts A Lot software hooked up to my Cricut to cut the images in vinyl. I applied them right on top of the glass, but you could also cut your image in reverse and apply the vinyl to the underneath side of the glass. If you missed my post on cricut tips and tricks....you can read it here.
If you're not the crafty type, you can just let me do all the work for you. I will be making these to put in my etsy shop for Christmas, along with some on boards, glass blocks, and ornaments. They make beautiful, meaningful gifts for the holiday season. But if you just can't wait and need to have one right this minute, I will be happy to comply. These beautiful 18 x 9 frames also look lovely with a family name and established date....like the one I made here, only smaller.
