I have two ridiculously easy V-Day crafts to share with you all today, and for the ease of linking later, I’ve decided to split them into 2 separate posts. For the second post, click here.
Sometimes it drives me a little crazy when I read about bloggers who make “super-cheap” (aka $30-$50 crafts) every week. I’m not saying that you can’t splurge to do something nice for your home, but I think most of us just don’t have that kind of money! So I thought and I thought, and I
blew that house down came up with some easy Valentine’s Day crafts that you could literally pay for with spare change.
Framed Chipboard Letters
- Chipboard sticker letters (3 packs for $1 in the Target Dollar Spot)
- 3 pieces of scrapbook paper (I got mine 4/$1 this week at Michaels)
- Dollar Store frame
- Goodwill frame ($.49)
- Scotch tape
Total: $3.50 for both! (Plus plenty of extra stickers and paper to use later)
This sparkly frame came with a picture hanger screwed to the top – easy to take off! I just cut out computer paper to put behind the stickers. Also, I’m sure you won’t be able to see unless you enlarge the picture on the right, but I put a teeny pencil mark under each letter when I had it the way I wanted it. That way, when I peeled the sticker backing off each one, I knew exactly where I wanted it to go in advance.
Cut your scrapbooking paper/cardstock to desired lengths, and place your letters however you’d like. I decided to raise the “O” to make it a little bit more interesting. I purposely affixed the papers with Scotch tape and not glue so that it would be more 3-dimensional, which is also why I didn’t put the glass back in.
And here are my pretty little girls together. ;)
SO easy, right? You could totally do this with kids of all ages!
