I also have a penchant for decorating, so I've merged these two interests to bring you today's How To post, which is about filling your picture frames with something meaningful besides pictures.
For example, when I was in the Christmas spirit last month, I substituted the three photos in this frame with a simple greeting. Two pages of scrapbook paper (one for the background, and another for the letters), an exacto knife, and a steady hand were the only materials necessary.
If you think JOY is too holiday-specific beyond the month of December, you always could change up the background paper. (Joy never goes out of season, right?) I opted to alter the phrasing slightly. Now, each time I walk up the stairs to do laundry, I'll be greeted with a reminder to "choose joy."
Or you could select another word to showcase. But I'll warn you: using only three letters is limiting. Not only does it relegate you to low Scrabble scores, but also it minimizes potential phrases worthy of framing. "Seize the DAY"? "I don't own a CAT"? "EAT more ice cream"? I'm entirely at a loss.
Maybe you'll do better.
My favorite wall art idea, however, is depicted in this frame below where I spelled our last name with pictures of letters from places that are significant for our family.
Good luck to you if you have a last name like VonSunderlandcamp. This only works for those economic last names with six letters or fewer. (Miller's and Smith's are sighing in relief.)
Happy decorating -- make them memorable!
