Easter Framed Deco

I don’t have little ones at home anymore, but I still love to decorate for the holidays. And since I have very few Easter decorations, I thought it would make a great project theme for this week. Last summer I found some old picture frames at a second hand store. None of the frames have glass or backing – they are simply bare frames. As I looked through them, I found one that seemed to fit my idea but it was a very dark, textured wood. My first task was to give it an Easter refresh with a little color.

I used a white primer with the thought of painting the frame pink. But the white primer looked so much like a white chalk paint, I fell in love with it. I stopped applying paint before all of the little nooks and crannies were filled – it gives it a bit of a vintage look. Next, I cut white poster board to fill the 11 x 14 frame.

Using Make-the-Cut, I imported an oval and used the skew tools to make it into an egg shape. Then I used the Gallery to find a nice bunny silhouette. I picked some patterned paper and cut out my Easter shapes.

Capture

I used scrapbook adhesive to adhere the poster board to the frame and thick pop dots to adhere the eggs and bunnies to the poster board. I also used scrapbook tape on some ribbon, folded it over baker’s twine and trimmed it to make an accent bunting banner.
