DIY Projects in Progress

On Oscar night, I was inspired to take on some DIY projects. Guitar Fred and I headed to Michael's. I bought him a 3-D wooden to keep him busy while I glittered photo frames and played around with the birdcage. More pics to come!

What I did:
I wanted to glam up the $1 frames I had bought from Target in early January, so I used Martha Stewart's glitter to make it sparkle. Last week, I had purchased a few hundred blank teal pricetags for only 85 cents total! I stamped the tags with our initials in teal embossing ink and slipped one into the birdcage I bought at TJ Maxx for $7.99. I'll probably end up using the tags to go with our wedding favors. Inside the birdcage is a bird candle ($1 from Smith and Hawken) next to a mason jar with mini daffodils and Spanish moss.


Hmm...so what should I use as a table number inside the frame? Regular numbers or perhaps a fun photo like this from Brooklyn Bride?

I love the fun photo idea! We’re using postcards of California cities as our table names.

awesome idea for the birdcage! i recently got one from the east bay depot for creative reuse, and I wasn' t sure what to do with it.

Hey...that's my husband and I in the photos! Go with the pictures. I think it's so much more fun and memorable. :)

Hi Sunray, so nice to meet the inspiration!! Thanks for stopping by. What did you do with the photos afterwards? Scrapbook?

ooh, i'm just playing catch-up on your blog (it's been a crazy month) and i'm getting so much inspiration. i love the idea of the polaroids as table numbers, and the way you glammed up your target frames is awesome!

Sunray said...

Hi Vera! Haven't done anything with them yet. We have a couple of them sitting on our desk. :)

Thanks, Giovanna. Sunray -- sounds like that's the perfect way to display those photos. A reminder everyday, right?
