While cleaning out the basement I found a box of some old signs and frames just sitting. SO whats a craft girl to do Repurpose them. I just love the idea of taking something old or something not your style and turning it into your style.
- Old Sign
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Chalk Paint
- Cricut Easy Press Mini
- Welcome To Our Home SVG
- Embossing Heat Gun
Step 1: Paint the inside frame any color of your choice. I went with an off white, egg shell color. I did 3 coats of paint and using my heat gun dried each layer in between.
Step 2: Making it an aged look or farmhouse style dry brush some black paint over top and sand off.
Step 4: Paint the frame – I used black. Heat dry and sand it for a distressed look.
Step 5: Cut and Weed your HTV and heat up your mini press. Medium heat 20-30 seconds.
Step 6: Place your HTV on top of your wood piece with constant motion press with your mini press. Each area should get 10-15 sec of heat. Lift the carrier sheet. Be careful it’ll be hot.
Step 7: Wash your glass and put the frame back together.
Now you have an old frame turned new again.
