Beautifully Framed Letters DIY

This DIY project doesn’t have to only be displayed at holiday time.  Framing letters is a fun and easy way to change the decor in your home.  You can frame a name, city, emotion, or thought for any room.  Choose a fabric and color scheme that suits you. Thanks to Canary Street Crafts for the gorgeous idea.

Our friend AmieJo from Life’s Little Projects asked if we’d be interested in making a Christmas decor item using something we found in a thrift shop.  It sounded like a fun challenge, and after finding 3 matching frames, we decided to make a pretty JOY sign.

I bought three gold 8×10 frames that would be the base of my framed burlap JOY sign.

The first thing was to remove the paper backing, picture and glass.  Then I added two coats of gesso to the frame, letting each coat dry throughly.
