Last Christmas I was asked to get a "white elephant" gift for a gift exchange at my husbands work. The gift had to cost less that $10. I figured the easiest way to do that would be to use my vinyl. So I went to the Dollar Tree and bought a glass picture frame. It was one of the ones that would hold 3 pictures and corves so it will stand on its own. I pulled off the photo holders and cleaned it up, then put on the sticker. It turned out great! I think it got traded 4 times before the exchange was done. =)
I found a similar sticker online and thought it was a great idea. Then as I was browsing through the D.I. one day I found a stack of brand new white platters that were just begging to be used for something. So I altered the sticker to fit the plate and voila! They made great Christmas presents for the ladies I visit teach!
I was asked by a lady in my ward to do a large wall sticker for her. She got the idea from her niece, who had one in her house (top picture.) I was able (with the help of my sister - Thanks Lisa!) to exactly copy the original sticker. The whole thing measures 55" x 35". That's by far the biggest one I've done yet! I think the idea is great. What a neat way to portray your family portraits!
Now I just need to see if I can get a picture of the finished project!!
