Creating seasonal décor for your home can be not only fun, but also an inexpensive alternative to buying ready-made items for each season or holiday. Dollar stores are great sources for items to alter with paper crafting supplies. With a simple 5” x 7” wooden frame, a few paper scraps, and basic supplies, you can create a fun welcome sign that is quick, easy, and inexpensive.
Remove any decorations from the front of the frame. Apply glue medium to the front of the frame with a foam brush. Place the frame glue side down on the backside of the patterned paper. Trim around the edges of the frame with a craft knife.
Sand the edges of the frame. For a distressed or vintage look, apply Distress Ink to the edges with an ink blending tool.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the inside of the frame. Adhere the paper to the inside frame back (the piece the easel is connected to).
Cut two 3/4” x 12” paper strips. Punch a border design on the strips using the Falling for You Border Punch.
Apply to the border strips to the frame around the photo opening. Don’t worry if the pattern doesn’t match at the corners, they can be easily disguised later with buttons.
Cut one strip of paper that is about 1/2” wide out of light colored paper and one strip that is 5/8” from a contrasting colored paper. Ink the edges of the two strips if desired. Layer and adhere the two strips together.
Stamp the word “welcome” on the strip.
Use chipboard or die cut letters add the word “fall” to the inside area of the frame. Before adhering the letters in place, lay the paper strip in place to help choose the placement of the letters. After laying the strip in place, use a pencil to mark the where the strip overlaps onto the border.
Trim one end of the strip into an inverted V. The inside point of the V should be at the pencil mark. Bend the strip in half so that the second pencil mark lines up with the inside point of the V on the cut end. Cut the second point to match the first, using the first cut end as a cutting template.
Add two brads to the paper each end of the paper strip. Adhere the banner in place using adhesive dots placed on the back of the banner behind the brads.
Punch four leaves each from two colors of solid patterned paper. Use clear adhesive dots to adhere all four matching leaves together into one stack. The thickness of the adhesive dots will separate the layers and create a dimensional embellishment.
Use clear adhesive dots to adhere a button to each corner.
If you intend to hang the frame, you may need to add picture hangers to the back of the frame. Use a Craft Hand Drill starter holes for the screws for the hangers.
Run one strip of ribbon through the picture hangers on the back of the frame. Tie the ribbon into a bow so that the ribbon can be used as a hanger.
