I admit, two things I love that always seem to make it into my holiday decorating every year: Ikea and spray paint. I try to keep most of my core decorations the same to save money but I do like to mix in a few inexpensive items to change things up a bit every year and that is usually where Ikea comes in.
These frames from Ikea are only .99 cents and come in four different colors: white, red, blue and green. But, obviously with a coat of spray paint, they can be whatever color you need them to be. This Rustoleum glitter spray paint is seriously now my new favorite. As you can see from the close up below it is super sparkly and you can add several layers if you really want it to shine! (I believe it comes in three sparkly colors: gold, silver and red and I purchased mine at Home Depot)
I added some of the Christmas Cheer No. 25 art prints and they were ready to give as teacher gifts. This is a double sided frame so on the other side I gave my son a 4x6 piece of cardstock and he wrote a note to the teacher. I then tucked a cute envelope with a gift card into the frame and now each teacher has a festive double sided frame with a sweet student note on one side and a festive art print on the other for their desk!
For a little extra whimsy I even added a little "jewelry" to Goldie.
I think the dry time on the frames was the longest part of the project! (Approximately 30 minutes)
