Framed Christmas Prints



My friend Sue and I wanted to make some fun crafts to give away to friends and family as gifts this Christmas.  We searched the internet for fresh fun ideas.  One of those ideas was a simple but cute idea of simply framing a Christmas print.  You can find some great free printable's online that you can download and print for free at home or at your local office store. 

I found some great chalkboard signs, Christmas sheet music, and quotes that I decided to frame for my gifts.  I picked up the frames at the local goodwill store, and dollar store for just a few bucks, cleaned them up and sprayed them fun colors.  With a pretty coordinating ribbon I think these will make great inexpensive gifts! And they turned out so cute, I made extra for my upcoming craft show! We would love to hear some of your homemade gifts you are working on this year! 


First I disassembled my frames washed and dried the glass inserts


And sprayed the frames


Make a cute holiday print, or find a free printable online, 
I made 5" x 7" and 8 x 10" prints
Cut to size of frame opening


When frames are dry, insert into frame


Isn't it cute!


I decided to glitter the red frames to make it look snow kissed :)
you know I love me some Mod Podge!


Add a decorative coordinating bow and you have 
yourself some beautiful framed Christmas art that would be 
nice sitting on a foyer or accent table, or hanging on the wall

If you give these a try, let me know. I would love to hear some of your homemade gifts you are working on for Christmas this year! 

Getting crafty,
