Christmas in July




I am amazed all the things that can be created out of this one little can.






So while at my favorite store last week {Goodwill} I spotted these little lovelys. And flashed backed 30 years to my early childhood.


The shape was great and the frame was even better. I wiped them down and popped the picture out coating it with a few coats of chalkboard spray paint. First I had planned on creating some Halloween hangings but they are in such great shape I thought Christmas!! So the frames received a few coats of crimson spray paint and then I wiped a nice stain over the top for a bit of distressed look.



I think these will be perfect gifts for teachers and family friends. Packaged up nicely with some chalk and an eraser! It's never to early to start thinking about Christmas, Yikes!

  4. My favorite store is Goodwill (in my state it is the DI) too! It takes creativity to spot just a find and turn it into a diamond from the rough. Love! :) Annie from NFF
