Spring decorating

I have started adding pops of spring around my home-
 I had picked this up for $1.99 last summer-
This spring I painted it-
sometimes it takes me awhile but I do like how this turns out-
At Christmastime, I picked up a slew of calendars for $1 each at Michael's craft store.
I thought I might frame them,especially with all the bird pics!

The March page spoke to me first!
I cut it down to fit the wooden pear pic-
Took out the trusty Mod Podge
and went to town-
3 coats later and TA-DA!

How pretty!

So, keep your eyes open for inexpensive calendars-
the pictures can be framed inexpensively and
 when the calendar is a specific theme,
 you can frame up a set of 12 in a snap!!

  1. This is very pretty what a great idea & cost effective

  2. Great idea! I love the bird picture and love the idea of using calendars. The graphics on those can be so cute!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great day.

  3. How pretty! Love the print from the calender.. I have never found any calenders in my Michaels that pretty, I will def start looking harder in the future.

  4. That is so cute! Never would have thought to mod podge an entire frame like that. Love it.

  5. I used this post for the sidebar feature this week.

  6. Love this!! I just bought a few old cabinet doors at a flea market and this would be a great project to try. Thanks for the inspiration!! Oh and I'm your newest follower! :)
