Frame Something Funky
50 Cent Gift Box Framed Art
Welcome to the first Thrift Store Décor Makeover day of 2016. Can you believe it’s 2016? I remember when we were worrying about the millennium. Was that really 16 years ago…..seems like yesterday.
I spotted the pack of 3 gift boxes at my local thrift store. They were laying on a shelf and when they first caught my eye I thought the gift pack was a painted canvas. You guys know those bright colors caught my eye. I had to have them for 50 cents….I mean why not!
This vintage frame was in my junk stash. It showed up on my Christmas Mantel.
I selected purple spray paint from my paint shelf. I have tons of spray paint. I never know what color I may need for a project so I stock a variety. Some of them I buy at Habitat Restore.
The frame had no glass or backing so I cut a piece of heavy cardboard the size of the frame then used it as a template to cut the gift box top to size. I cut the cardboard first and made sure it fit the frame properly. I’ve been known to make a few mistakes in my measurements. Even though I had three gift box tops to work with I didn’t want to mess all of them up. I may use the other two for projects in the future.
I used Frogtape to hold everything in place then attached a wire hanger to the back.
The Frame Something Funky Art is hanging in the “granddaughters bedroom”. They have a special bedroom at our house and as you can see the room is decorated in bright colors!
What do you think of the framed “art”? Project cost was less than $2. Can’t beat that.
