Initial Picture Frames

This year I made Initial Picture Frames for my Wonderful Piano Students
They are really easy and cheap to make - can use this idea for...Weddings, Birthdays, Birth Announcements, Graduations,  Craft days for kids etc,.......

You can probably just look at them and see what to do - but if you are new at crafting I listed the steps below, supplies are listed in CAPITALs

1.  Get your WOODEN FRAME (Michaels $1.00 - have a little peg for standing)
2. PAINT, orSTAIN  the back and edges
3.  Apply SCRAPBOOK PAPER to front with MOD PODGE
4.  Sand edges - when dry -  to remove excess paper
5.  STAIN edges of frame if desired (I used a black stamp pad for this step)
6.  Apply a layer of Mod Podge over front and edges of frame
7.  Paint LETTERS to match - letters can be - chip board, balsa wood, or wooden, I saw some  glittered          
     letters at Hobby Lobby - that would be cute!
     (I cut my own letters out of 1/4" birch scraps I had on hand)
8.  GLUE letters to frame - I used glue dots and then stapled from the back

                                                         backs painted .....
                                                        paper added.....
                                                       finished project .....

And so the Wedding Season starts!
What to get for the happy couple...

Here is one idea.....

A HUGE LETTER IS ALWAY A GOOD IDEA...two smaller letters can be hung on either side
for the couple's first names....

This "L" is aprox 20"x16" and is resting on a shelf
- it does  come with saw tooth hangers on back for hanging-
These huge letters look  great added to  a family picture wall....
  Smaller letters - first name initial -  can be hung by individual pictures.  
millions of ideas for letters!
