Inexpensive Fall Sign

::::::::{ Sweet Fall Sign }::::::::

Salvation Army Frame { 2.98} + Creativity = GRATEFUL

A word that seems appropriate for the season AND a word I am focusing on daily in my own life

The neat thing is you can change this up by changing the paper, word and whimsy add ons!

{ 1 }
First I gathered supplies - paper, Cricut, mod podge, paint brush

{ 2 }
I then figured out what size the letters needed to be to be centered on the frame
I used the cardboard piece that was in the back of the frame and just mod podged the scrapbook paper to it and trimmed of excess with a craft knife.

{ 3 }
Cut out the letters and arrange them on the board in a pleasing way.....hopefully centered :)  Once I got it to look the way I liked it ( I used a cutting mat as a ruler and guide for a straight line to glue the letters permanently on)  I brushed on the Mod Podge on the back of each letter.
Stuck them all down.  Waited for them to dry a little.  Then I gave each letter a good topcoat of Mod Podge.

All that's left is to ( clean the glass first ) stick it back into the frame and for a little whimsy I hot glued a felt flower I had made for my daughters hair but never used.


ENJOY creating a word sign for your family space!

This is so beautiful-what a great idea. The little touch of orange is perfect for Autumn.

I just saw this project featured in a Tip Junkie email. It is wonderful. So stylish, but so frugal. Love it.
