I enjoy browsing the shelves of the local dollar store and am always finding some things that can be used for one project or another. Before Christmas I found a pack of snowflake ornaments that I repurposed to turn into a fancier ornament. I had a few left over so I started browsing Pinterest to find other uses for these ornaments and came across this framed artwork. I really liked it and thought something like it would make a great gift for a friend of mine. So, I got busy and came of with my own rendition.
I can often find used frames for a little bit of nothing at garage sales or my local Restore and they shape up nicely with a fresh coat of paint. In this case, a fresh coat of paint and a little distressing of the edges with a piece of sand paper.
I hot glued the Dollar Store snowflakes to some old sheet music I had laying around (you could also print some off from the internet too). After giving the glass from the frames a good cleaning, I placed the sheet music behind it and put the backs back on the frames. I made an accordion-style flower to add a little extra flair to one of the frames.
I love the way they turned out and the set made a nice gift for only a few dollars. The next set I make, I’m keeping for myself 😉 !!
