Design on a dime?

I have seen these design wall "deals" everywhere and I WANTED to make my own as soon as I could!  My friend, Stephany was throwing away a framed picture that was the perfect size for my little plan;)  I didn't jump on this thought right away though and it got snatched by another friend down the street:(  Lucky me, she gave it back due to her not having time to do anything with it!

Onward:)  I also stole asked Steph for some spray paint to cover up some ugly spots on the frame.  Joann's was having a $2.99 a yd sale on felt and so I had already bought a 1 1/2 yds.  I got to work and proceeded to put about three layers on the wood frame and then wrapped the felt around the picture and added electrical tape to hold it in place.  Then I placed the newly covered picture into the frame.  WELL.....maybe not so quick as I am trying to perceive it as here;)  First, I found out that the only way for this thing to fit back into the frame was to remove all the staples around the whole frame: /  Yucky, but doable.  In place of the staples, I added a screw to each side to anchor the felted picture.  Voila---- Masterpiece!!

as you can see I haven't finished my pumpkin project yet- naughty me!
Time for bed.  It's hard work coming up with all these ideas and well I have to go dream some more about quilting anyways **wink,wink**

Before you head off to bed, like this little guy did hours ago, please do yourself a favor and go see boy or girled cheese  for an amazing giveaway happening this moment until the 31st of Oct.

he's all mine:)

Night ya'll!
