My Monday #6 - Layered Frames

#1 - SHOP of the DAY - SofaCitySweethearts

#2 - ITEM of the DAY - Pincushion - Felted Cupcake in Vanilla Mint

This tutorial happened by accident. My mother (or somebody really important) always told me to make lemonade out of lemons so I figured don't let a silly drop of the frame and break all the glass so you can never use it again - ruin your day. Apologies to my high school English teachers for that sentence, it just had to be done. So here was the situation. I hate to throw away things, almost hoarding but with crafts - so it's ok right? And I had these 2 frames that had no glass but I thought were great and then bam, I realized they fit perfectly as a pair. So out came my hammer and nails and a little bit of digging for this candle and we have a layered frame.

1. 2 frames of different sizes
2. Something cool and 3-D to hang in the middle =)
3. Craft Paint (or any leftovers really)

1. Large Frame (use a coupon) 3-5 $
2. Small Frame (garage sale - $2)
3. Craft Paint - free (from my craft room)
4. Handmade Cross Candle - $5 (but you could use anything in your house for free!)

Total - Under $12
*BUT keep in mind - you can use OLD frames and old candles and really do this for free =)

Happy Monday!
