Prepare yourself for the fastest tutorial in the universe, truly. I wanted to do a new year craft, and it turns out that crafty ideas aren’t that easy to find for the first day of the year. I was also running short on time, so it had to be quick. All of the sudden, a Craft Gossip e-mail newsletter pops into the ol’ inbox, and so did this cute (and free) printable by Custom Printables. How very crafty-meant-to-be. Here’s how it’s done.
Gather These Supplies
Frame – mine is from Dollar Tree
Mod Podge Sparkle
Krylon Gold Spray Paint
The original Custom Printables printable is no longer available, so here’s another option – Desiree at 36th Avenue has New Year Subway Art that doesn’t list the year!
Here’s the starting frame. Black. Plain. Needs something. I sprayed with gold spray paint and allowed to dry.
Add several layers of Sparkle Mod Podge to the outside of the frame and allow to dry.
Print out the printable and trim to fit; put in your frame.
I’m serious, that’s all it takes! I didn’t even really need a tutorial, but I thought it would be fun given how easy it is. Now I have a nice little crafty decoration to ring in the new year. Come back tomorrow for my top five favorite things of 2010. You’re gonna love it.
