The Luck of the Irish

Well, just in time for St. Paddy's Day, we have a new craft idea to share!  I have seen this idea on several different craft blogs and I finally had to try it for myself.  The greatest thing about this craft/ decoration is that it can be changed and reused for each holiday!

First, collect about 5 old picture frames.  We didn't have any to use around our house so we went out and found some cheap frames from Wal-Mart and TJ Maxx.  Then buy a can of spray paint. I chose white, but depending on your style or decor you could choose black or any other color! :)

Then prep the frames by removing the glass and all that stuff.  Layout some newspaper and start spraying!
While your frames are drying think of a word that goes with the season you are decorating for...we chose LUCKY for St. Patrick's Day! You will also need some "Holiday Inspired" scrapbooking papers.  Cut your paper to the picture size of the frame.  Cut out the letters of your holiday word.  I used my Cricut (Wild Card Cartridge) to cut out the letters but you could also just print the letters from your computer and cut them out! :)
Once your frames are 100% dry, it's time to put it all together.  I put the paper in the frames before I attached the letters in case I had to trim any of the papers (which I did).  You can also add some cutie embellishments to the frames.  Now set them up for everyone to enjoy! 
Happy St. Patrick's Day! 
 Happy Everything!!!
