DIY Wednesday: Photo Frame Sign

Hello,

I've been brainstorming ideas for a sign for my craft booth this weekend. Eventually I'll probably want to get a nice vinyl one, but right now I just need something small.

I got this idea from my sister-in-law. She has these large frames in her house with those fun sayings and cute fabric behind it. She used the vinyl wall art that is so popular right now. If I had a Silhouette paper cutting machine, I would have tried that. But, I didn't have a way to get the right font with vinyl letters. (So if you can use vinyl, do! It will last much longer)

While looking for my t-shirt transfer paper (to make some logo shirts for the show this weekend), I found this little gem I had bought five years ago. It was window clings you can print using your home computer. So, I got a longer frame from Wal-Mart, printed the letters on my window cling paper and cut a piece of fabric to fit in the frame.


Letters before attaching. I couldn't figure out the mirror print option, so I had to attach the window clings on the outside of the frame...Inside would have worked much better.


Pretty nice sign for my first craft show this weekend!

This project isn't only for craft shows....it would also work great for wall art in your home.

I'm pretty excited for my first craft show. I'll have pictures to share next week. Here are two new wipe cases I did tonight. One features an upcycled sweater I found a few years ago.





Upcycled sweater wipe case. I still need to add the trim.

Your photo frame sign looks good! It's like a scrap book! Surely, the children will love your craft.
