Hey, it's Chelsy, with a Y! I am a wife to my sweet prince, and mother to one spunky little princess and one handsome little ham of a prince. Painting is my drug of choice. Wine is good too. I'm known to speak without thinking and eat to much chocolate. I love meeting new people, and learning new things. So this is my journey through some not so glorious moments, some not so intelligent thoughts and some possibly crafty ideas.

Easy, Cute, and Cheap! 3 of my favorite words when....

Crafting :) Get your heads out of the gutter, what did you think I was going to say? "When I'm on the prowl?" Shame on you! Hehehe...Anyway on to my so easy your five year old could do it pretty cute and cheap fall decoration I made this morning.

First, take some of these window clings. Mine were $0.50 at the dollar store on clearance. (Yes, clearance at the Dollar Store, doesn't get much better than that :)

Then take some empty picture frames and cut out cardstock, scrapbook paper, or even fabric to fit inside (I used cardstock) and decorate with your window clings. They work better on the inside of the glass, but you can add them to the outside also with a little Windex if you think they could use something extra and are to lazy to take the backs off of your frames. (It's okay, I won't tell :)

And you're done! See, easy right? And cheap and fast! Can't make a liar out of me :)

Here they are on my mantle. Not sure that's where they are staying but that's where they were when I took pictures.  I'm linking this to Kimba's DIY Day, there are so many great projects there...you should check it out! And, Cheri's It's so very creative party, such fun!

Happy Tuesday,

Hi Chelsy,

What a great idea! And you're right, so cute, cheap and easy. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for window clings...I never in a million years would have thought of doing something like this with them. Great job!

Its So Very Cheri said...

Thanks so much for posting. Great ideas. I started thinking--hey it might look cute to have some on the paper and others on the glass to add dimension.
I look forward to getting to know you better.
