How much do you think the letter in the picture above would cost?  MAYBE you could find it on sale for $10 – $15.  Maybe.  But I would expect it to be someone in the $25-$30 range at some kind of boutique store.  Well, Karen over at Somewhat Quirky actually made this herself with just a 3D cardboard letter from Hobby Lobby, puffy paint, foil, modge podge, and black shoe polish!!

I absolutely love these fabric covered canvas picture frames!!  Not only are they are less expensive than buying a traditional picture frame, but you can totally customize them to your home decor!  AND, I love that you can easily change out the photo without a hassle!  All you need is a photo, a canvas that’s bigger than the photo, photo corners, a staple gun, and a fat quarter of fabric.

To see all of the details on how to make this, head over to Kristin Duke Photography!
