Hi everyone.  Today I am doing a guest post over at The Wood Connection.   I am showing how to make this fun whimsical Christmas frame.  Be sure to visit them to see a full tutorial on how to paint and glitter this cute little project along with a  great technique on how to paint and glitter the wooden dots!

Last Minute Neighbor Gift

If you are looking for a quick, cute, easy, inexpensive neighbor gift…I have one for you.  My daughter and I found this print on pinterest  and had them printed at Alphagraphics on glossy cardstock.  Then found frames at the dollar store and spray painted them red, and glittered some of them.  And look how cute they turned out.  Quick, easy, and a great message all in one.  Tie it up with a big bow and you are done!

You can print the picture from here.  We did 8 x 10, but you could also do 5 x 7 frames.  I paired my up with a cute little angel and it makes a darling setting.

I hope that you will all have a great week this week and that the true meaning of Christmas will be with you and your family!

We celebrated our Christmas, last night with all of our families, because this is our off year with the married kids and it was great fun.  The kids did the nativity story, a post that I will have for you tomorrow.  We exchanged gifts, which the kids loved because now they all have something to play with all week while they are out of school! And it is kind of nice to be done with the bulk of my Christmas shopping, the wrapping, the food and candy making etc etc etc.  So now this week I can relax a little bit and just enjoy the season!

Happy Holidays!
