Rustic Twig Frames

Three Rustic Frames, put together to go along with the rustic theme, I have worked into my holiday decorating this year.

Finding these sweet little vintage Christmas Flower Fairy images at the Graphics Fairy.

Assembling the frames following the same basic procedures as the Rustic Stars.

Printing my images as 5x7 ,using clear Glimmer paint to highlight the berries.
Distressing Ink & a touch of Glimmer Mist lending the aged look.


Backing to 5.5 X 7.5 cardboard salvaged from the cardboard backing that came in a Paper pack and same size cut of Card stock.

All adhered together with Mod Podge to give a sturdy hold.

Hot gluing the images to the back of the wooden frames.
Adding wire wrapped around the back of frame and pulling tight for the hanger.

That's it ! Thanks for stopping by :)

Oh this is a wonderful idea! A great way to change your Christmas decor too without spending a fortune trying to incorporate some new things. I personally LOVE the rustic look, especially at Christmas time it just feels so warm and cozy....You need a picture of them hanging on your tree! I'm definitly trying this, gotta love the mod podge, it works so great for just about anything and everything! TFS such a great, simple project!
