DIY Valentine's Day Collage Frame With Hobby Lobby Faux Scrabble Tiles


 I picked up this frame at my local thrift shop today for $2.

It had never been used but had some scratches in the finish.  It originally sold for $9.99.

I was in Bemidji on Monday, and stopped at Hobby Lobby.

Valentine's Day crafts were 40% off.  I purchased these faux Scrabble Tiles at 40% off of $2.99.

I actually have Scrabble tiles from games too but I always run out of some of the letters, and the price was right!

My frame is an easel type collage frame.


I brushed on two coats using one my new favorites, the Zibra 1-Inch Square Paint Brush.

The square brush works well on small areas and especially on chair legs or spindles. 

After the paint dried, I sanded the edges with 220 grit sandpaper.

I then sealed the paint with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear.  I apply it with Intex Precision-fiber Paint & Cleaning Rags.

On the cardboard inside the frame.

I brushed on two coats.

I then assembled the frame with a photo of my youngest daughter and her boyfriend.

My Hobby Lobby faux scrabble tiles were sticky backed, so all I had to do was arrange them on the glass areas of the collage frame.

I think they will stay on too.  The clear double stick tape on each tile was pretty strong and sticky.
