Happy National Craft Month! I mentioned before with my Clay Pot Leprechaun Hats that I was participating with some blogging friends to celebrate national craft month! Today I have this adorable and EASY Hello Sunshine Quote Frame. Sometimes when I think of painting a project, I make a scrunchy face. The paint, the brushes, the mess, the drying time, the clean up…GAH! Well this project was so easy and it was therapeutic to paint a little!
I am working on really organizing my craft room and making it a great space to create and work in. When we moved in to this house, my craft room was the first room I painted and has now become the dumping grounds for everything we want out of sight when people come over. I am taking my craft room back and making it mine again.
My room is in our basement and has no windows so I painted it a nice sunshiny yellow! I am using bright colors to get my creativity juices flowing and I mean, bright fun colors just make me happy! I am using a lot of my supplies and tools as art in the room, displaying small supplies in glass jars on a shelf, my threads arranged in pretty color order and so on but I do want some real art things in there after all this is a creative space.
Enter this easy frame.
Supplies Needed to Make a Hello Sunshine Quote Frame:
- Frame (old, new, it doesn’t matter)
- Heidi Swapp Hello Sunshine Wood Cut Out
- Paint Brushes
- Scrapbooking Paper
- hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
I started out with a blank frame and decided to paint it with the same paint I used for my color block dresser I finished for my craft room. I chose the pink color for the frame and the yellow for the wooden quote.
The I cut a piece of this double sided scrapbooking cardstock and decided I liked the chevron print the best and put that facing forward.
I added the wooden quote to the OUTSIDE of the frame’s glass because it gives a 3D effect and I like how you can see the shadow of the wooden quote on the chevron background. I tacked in place with a few spots of hot glue.
I love this and it does add sunshine to my craft room! Check out more painted projects during National Craft Month!
