Hello! Amy here from The Happy Scraps. I am SO excited to be sharing this fun PLAY frame with you today. I used the fun Happy Day collection on this project. When I started working on this, my goal was to create a way to get pictures of my family having fun on the weekends, off of my phone, and displayed. But I wanted to be able to change the pictures out, as often as I could, so this is the perfect solution. This turned out better than I could have imagined!
I started out by collecting my supplies. I used my saw to cut the word “play” and made the frame out of old fence slats. I had the coated chicken wire & mini clothes pins on hand, and I pulled out the fun Happy Day collection for the stickers, frames, twine, and paper.
Start out by turning over you word, and tracing it onto the back of the paper that you’d like on the front of your word. I loved the pink polka dot paper, Happy Day Let’s Chat cardstock.
Next, you’ll cut out your word.
When applying paper to wood, I like to use wood glue. I put some on the wood, spread it out evenly with a sponge brush and apply the paper. On a piece this size, you may need to do one half at a time. Use a vinyl applicator to make sure you get the paper smooth.
Next, I cut my chicken wire to size, and used a staple gun to attach it to the back of the frame.
Now you are ready to adhere the word play to the front of the frame. I used wood glue and clamps to make sure the word was on there good.
Next, I cut apart the Happy Day Thinking of You paper so I could cut apart the fun little bunting pieces that were on it.
Using the twine from the Happy Day Photo Garland Kit, I glued it to the back of the bunting pieces. I put two of these together.
Using the mini clothes pins, I hung the buntings from the chicken wire, one on top and bottom.
I embellished the photo frames by adding some stickers from the Happy Day Cardstock Stickers, Icons & Phrases sheet. Then I hung them from the chicken wire.
I added some photos to the frames that I took over the weekend. I love that I can change the photos anytime, updating them with more recent photos of my family playing on the weekends.
So tell me, if you could use one word to describe your weekends, what would it be?
