A horse of a different color

May 21, 2013

I have quite a few weddings I will be attending this summer. In an effort to provide personalized gifts for the happy couples I had to branch out in terms of projects. Most of these couples are from established households, and while I love a nice towel as much as the next person, I feel like it is always nice to get something handmade.

One such gift is a set of picture frames that I painted and recreated into a decorative piece, I hope provides a nice memory of their special day.




I started with some basic picture frames, sandpaper, paint and ribbon I picked up at the local store.

The first step was to sand the frames down.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I used some card stock I had on hand and printed out the words, “live, laugh,love.” I ended up embellishing them with some of the ribbon as a border.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAdding ribbon to the top (it was originally a wire) and boom, I was done with a nice and personalized present for the happy couple.
