Spring Bird Printable ….Getting Ready for Spring Series part #2

Spring Print Frame 1

About a week ago, I started taking down the winter “stuff” and replacing it with some spring things.

I wanted to only use what I had around the house, and I ended up with the vignette you see below.

I think I will still make a little banner for this area, but I wanted to show you how I found some “spring things” in my house without spending any money.

Entry 2.5

I started by taking placemats and making them into a table runner. You can find the directions for my tutorial here.

After that I made some framed art.

I had a frame with no glass, some scrap book paper that was a corresponding color and some white cardstock.

Then I searched for a Spring-ish printable on Pinterest. There are hundreds of printables too choose from. I decided on this bird. You can find it here.

The white cardstock with the cream colored matting bothered me, so I tea-stained the perimeter of the cardstock.

To do this, just wet the tea bag with hot water, break the tea bag open and rub the leaves around the edges.

Then you have to press the picture over night in a book, so it will lay flat.

Then I used double-sided tape to take the picture on, and that was it!

Pretty easy and inexpensive.

Hope you’re all having a good week!
