Holiday Frame

Spent another afternoon in a resale shop looking for some old Christmas sweaters for my daughter, Butterfly and her friends to wear to a “Tacky Christmas Sweater Party”.  I was shocked to come across so many cute cheap tacky sweaters at almost a steal of a price! 

Hard to believe we used to wear these and thought we looked like a million bucks!  Oh don’t be shy and act like you never did!

I ended up buying all four because I couldn’t make up my mind and Butterfly was not with me.  It was either keep her and Buttercup and home or take them both while Buttercup runs around the store.  I chose to go alone!

Could not pass us this lot of frames priced at $5 and with the 50% discount I paid a whopping $2.50 for all of them.  I was excited because I love to paint them.  It’s a quick fix of instant gratification for me!
I am in love with the details and scrolls on these frames and just cannot pass them up!
If anyone is interested in the pictures just let me know and I will give them to you.  I am not using them.
Here is my inspiration via Pinterest, not sure of the source but promise to give it proper credit when I locate it:
Open frame idea
As you can guess by the first picture that I painted the oval frame with my favorite color red.  See original paint color HERE that I first used for my Kid Kitchen Makeover. 
Next, I embellished the frame with ribbons and bells from
Dollar Tree.
Butterfly told me it looked terrible, what does she know!?  and did I ask for her opinion anyway? yes I did but that’s besides the point.
I think it’s cute and I will just leave her in charge of the baking around here since she is so fantastic at it and I can burn a pbj sandwich, this is her creation from today:
P.S.  I made the little cake stand from a 25cent garage sale candle base and a 25 cent charger = 50cents baby!
So what do you think about the Holiday Frame?  Success or Failure?

  7. Wow! Honored the Holiday Frame is liked so well. Each of you definitely inspire me. I'll have to relay your comments to my oldest daughter, maybe she will change her opinion about it! I love it and thinking maybe I can re-use it for Valentine's Day?

  8. Tell "Butterfly" that a year later people are still drooling over this project and I am running out to my nearest thrift store today to see if I can find a similar style frame to recreate this! LOL

    Beautiful – DEFINITELY a Winner!
