25 Days of {homemeade} Christmas Gifts-Day 5

Today's gift is so easy to make, that I didn't even take pictures of the steps, because there are only two, paint and decorate!

Here are the supplies I used:
wooden picture frame from Michaels-$1
acrylic craft paint-.59
ribbon-Mine were from another project
letter stickers
hot glue gun or a staple gun

Paint your picture frame and let it dry. Don't forget to paint the backside. Since it's wooden, the frame may soak up some of the paint, so add another coat.

I added some ribbon to each side and tied a bow. I stapled the ribbon to the back, and put on the letter sticker.

Hobby Lobby has a section just for decorating picture frames. At my Hobby Lobby, they are near the poster section. They have buttons, beads, and some other things in different themes. Happy holiday crafting!

I have some little girls to buy gifts for. I think I'll make them some of these. I know they'll love them, especially if they're personalized. Thanks for the great idea.

I love this frame. I have some of these frames from Michael's. Now, I know just what to do with them. These will make great birthday and christmas presents for my daughter's friends.
