Springtime Hello Frame Tutorial

Published by under 3D projects | Feb 12 2014


Hi friends, thanks for visiting. My little creative corner has been crazy busy lately. We had our BIG team day on Saturday, so I was kind of off the grid for a while getting ready. It was a GREAT day! I have loads of photos from the event to share – they’ll be up soon. 




For today, I have a cute little project to keep you busy on a quiet weekend.






1. Find an old wooden picture frame. Remove glass and paint or whitewash the frame.

TIP: Visit Op Shops or garage sales to pick up a cheap frame. I got mine for $1 from the Barwon Heads All Saints op shop while we were camping nearby over the summer. 



2. Paint the backing board OR replace it with burlap as I did on the one below.

My burlap came from one of the bags we got on last year’s Incentive Trip. You can see it in the third collage on this page, but you can pick up burlap fairly easily these days.

I used a staple gun to attach the burlap to the back of the frame. Pull it nice and tight. Check that the staples won’t show through.




3. Use the Springtime Hello Simply Created kit to make an awesome garland! Everything you need is in the kit, and at only AU$15.95 I don’t think there could possibly be a simpler and more inexpensive way of putting together a garland.

KitContentsThe kit includes:

  • 3 metres of Natural Linen Thread
  • 5x mini clothespins
    (sooo cute)
  • 5 natural designer buttons
  • loads of adhesive-backed, pre-scored printed stickers to create your garland.


You can pin photos or other special items along the thread as you wish, and mix up the display whenever you want.

I had enough leftover stickers to make up about half a dozen cards.

So tell me, are you into the framed art or framed chalkboard look? Have you made anything like this, or is it still on your To Do list?

Happy stamping,

    Your Springtime frame provided me with inspiration. I had an old frame which I had picked up from a roadside cleanup and it had been waiting for me to do something with it. I finally did after seeing your post and now I have my own frame which I used to display some cards in a recent workshop. You can see the results here http://megsobsession.blogspot.com/2014/03/take-old-frame.html. Thanks again
