A little DIY-The best souvenir ever!

Back in Nov. 2012 we went to Disneyland as a family. It was an amazing trip and even better family time. I always get so wrapped up in emotional when we go on vacation as a family of 4. I don't know why...we just seem so careless. Duh, that's what vacation is all about right?!?!? If real life was like that why would a person need vacation. LOL! We always have such a struggle with buying souvenirs. I know it sounds so dumb but seems a little of a waste of money sometimes. We put a lot of thought into what to get the kids since they are so little but it was a memorable vacation. After much discussion we decided to have their names painted with the character letters. (see pic. below) When we went to pick them up it we were so happy with our descion. We love them so much! Once we got home I realized they were a funny shape. It was going to be $$$ to have them framed and matted. ;( BIG BUMMER! So...there they my closet waiting to be framed. Hobby Lobby had their frames on 50% off sale this week so I decided to see if a little spray paint and DIY I could get the look I wanted for WAY less $$$. I am so happy I tried because I love the way it turned out and I saved SO MUCH money. ;)

Like I said I grabbed a frame I thought would work and was honestly only looking at the actual wood frame part of it...

After a little cutting, sanding, and spray painting...

I was able to achieve the look I was going for:

They only had one of those frames so Wyatt's name is going to have to wait...;( I will post it when I am finished because his name is equally as cute! 


  1. So cute! I absolutely love that frame! Definitely pinning this for the future!
