Matting and Framing
Michael's recently had these laser cut frames on sale. I had been looking for an inexpensive way to frame some of Parker's pictures. I wanted something unique, but unique can be pricey.
Michael's had the frames on sale for $1.99 instead of regular $7.99! As you can imagine, I bought several. They also had pre-wrapped canvas on sale half off. The canvas is 11x14... the same as the opening of the frame.
I spray painted the frame a dark bronze-y brown color. Then I hot-glued the canvas on to the front of the opening. Using modpodge, I attached my favorite of Parker's newborn pictures. I also purchased some decorative trim from Michael's, spray painted it the same color, and measured and cut it as a border for the photo.
In this picture, I have it hanging in Parker's nursery, but I haven't decided where it's permanent residence will be. I love the unique way the photo is displayed, and I love how inexpensive it was to make it!
