Ornate Frame Mixed Media Wall Art
Recently I was at my local thrift store, or more like my "Home Away From Home" and I saw an abundance of these really cool, really cheap ornate metal frames. I scooped them up not really sure what I was going to do with them, but had a couple ideas flying around my head.
With a little inspiration from my roommates, this was the final product.
It has definitely become a conversation piece to say the least.
Picture quality isn't the best but I assume you get the idea =)
All you need:
*an old frame
So easy! Just think of a quote or saying that you can print out. I only had white printer paper but there are other colors and shades available out there. I also used a free online photoshop to mess around with the fonts. If you go to dafont.com they have a bunch of free fonts you can download straight to your computer. There is also a great website PIXLR where you can create different layouts (kind of like Photoshop but without killing your wallet!)
I designed the font and layout I wanted then just modpodged some old newspaper to the back of the frame, lined up my words, glued them down then went over the whole thing a couple times with the ModPodge.
It really was easy! Took maybe an hour all together to do.
Hope you enjoyed this little project and remember to "Wash Your F****** Hands!"
