{framed sheet metal decor}




ITEMS YOU NEED:
  • frame of choice (We made this one, because I wanted something specific. You can either make one, or purchase one you love. I think a chunky frame looks best.)
  • sheet metal, cut to to fit the frame
  • E6000, craft adhesive
  • vinyl lettering
DIRECTIONS:
  • If you bought the frame, remove the glass and cardboard.
  • Cut sheet metal to fit the inside of where the glass was. (If I buy it at Home Depot, I use a sharpie marker and a ruler to mark the size, then use tin snips to cut the metal. I have also purchased sheet metal from a manufacturer, who cut it just the right size.)
  • Using the E6000, carefully glue the sheet metal to the back inside of the frame. Let dry.
  • Apply the vinyl lettering.


What's so fun about this project, is that there are million places you could put it, and a million options for quotes and colors.
It would fit any room in the house--how fun in a child's bedroom, with a fun quote, or even their name? In the guest bath, over the master bed, or in your family room?

I was wondering where you bought it. Until I started reading. I should have known you made it yourself- it's just, my stuff never turns out this perfect! Nice job.

If you'd like, I'm hosting my very first Link Party today. And you are welcome to link up this craft!

I've heard that if you have the tools, you can go to the dump and get sheet metal off of old appliances - free or whatever the dump fee is, then sand or paint if you don't like the color.
