As a Disney Movie Club member, I got 4 different Lithographs as a reward when we bought Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy and Frozen Blurays. It’s 8 by 10 size and will make a cute decor in Kid’s Playroo but Elisha wanted it her room instead. So I thought of sticking it on her wall with sticky tact but it looks bare so I told her I will buy frames first. Few weeks later, lithographs have been sitting in my artroom coz Im prioritizing the things that are important first then I finallyI came up with an idea this morning that saved me some money.
I remember making the same kind when I was in highschool. I can’t afford to buy a frame so I made one for myself that time.I love how things I created before are getting back to me little by little. Reminding me how I can make stuff without spending too much and satisfy you with an awesome outcome at the same time. I love how my resourcefulness kicks in when I need it! So, let me share this simple project …enjoy!
1. Wall Sticker (or any kind of paper you have or even fabric (gift wrapper, old clothes, etc)
2. Cardboard or old boxes
4. Ribbon or Yarn (or whatever is availble for hanging or you can simply just stick in in the wall without it. Elisha’s theme is more like girly with bows so most of her decors have bows in it)
5. Ruler and 6. Board Paper (with a size of the frame you’re creating for the base)
1. Cut your cardboard in whatever size you want that fits the picture you’re going to put.
2. Wrap the cut out boards with your chosen wrapper ( I used Wall Paper Sticker)
3. Lay the picture on the paper board. I used folder because I don’t have any board paper that is bigger that 8 by 10 picture.
4. Position the cut out board as a frame and glue them onto the paper.
5. Lastly, attach the ribbon between the base and the frame so it won’t be visible from the back.
And voila!!! I made my daughter very happy for having an instant frame that matches her Bedroom theme… Zebra and Pink!
The frame looks lovely in her room. I will finish the other two lithograps next time,
