Today’s project is another that came from the “to be donated” pile in the garage. I guess it’s a good thing that I have been too lazy to load it all in the car and drop it of at the thrift store. Now that my creative slump is over for the most part, that pile has been getting a little smaller and it feels really good to make use of things I thought I no longer needed or had room for. This frame is part of a pair that hung in the hallway of our previous house, but I just never found the right spot for them here.
This project took a few hours to complete and it was very easy and fun to make. The supply list included the frame, glue gun, Mod Podge, scrap piece of fabric, rope and letters. Other than the letters I had everything on hand so this was a very budget friendly project. I purchased the letters from Hobby Lobby and they were half price at the time. If you don’t have a store near you, you can purchase them online.
I started by removing the backing and insert of the frame. I had planned to remove the glass as well, but it was securely attached to the frame.
I then used the backing that I had taken out as my template to measure the fabric size I would need to cover the glass. Next, I used a craft paint brush to cover the glass with a thin layer of the Mod Podge. While it was still wet I laid the fabric on top and applied another layer of Mod Podge on top of the fabric.
Once it was dry I attached my H O M E letters with my glue gun.
To hide the frayed edges of the fabric I used some rope I had on hand and attached it with my handy glue gun. I found this rope at Lowe’s and I think I paid around $8.00 for it and have used it for so many projects. I really like how it finished off the piece.
I ended up hanging my new HOME sign in our garage by our door. Here’s a little peek. This chalk board painted wall in the garage is part of a bigger project I started a few years ago which I still have yet to finish and well now it’s just too darn hot. I am planning to finally finish this project and share with you in the fall when the weather cools off.
Here’s another peek at what’s been happening at our house. We are so excited to finally begin working on our neglected back yard and saying good bye to our old deck that was in need of major repair. I have so much to share about this little project that turned into a much bigger one than we first envisioned when we purchased our home three years ago. I will be sharing all the details and tons of before and after pictures with you in July and August. Here’s another peek.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
