A few months back, I made a custom painted serving tray featuring none other than my Kolchak, using Stylish Canine vinyl decals as my stencil. I’m a classic over-shopper, so after that project was done, I still had a handful of vinyl puggle silhouettes left and I’ve been looking for a fun (and easy) way to use them.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good holiday theme.
I’m one of those
crazy festive people who even changes out the photos in their photo frames so that they’re in keeping with the most recent holiday or season. When it occurred to me that if vinyl decals stuck to window glass that they would also stick to picture frame glass, I knew exactly what I wanted to make:
You want in? Here’s what you need:
- 1 – 8 x 10 frame that matches your home decor (Make sure you get one that has glass, not that cheap plastic)
- 1 Vinyl Decal in the breed of your choice (I got mine at Stylish Canine)
- Scrapbook paper (I went ahead and chose 12 different patterns)
Take the glass from the frame. Wash and dry it carefully.
Remove the backing from the vinyl decal and apply it to the front of the glass. Use a credit card to smooth out any air bubbles.
Place your glass back into the frame, decal side out. (I thought it looked better this way, since I’m a crummy “air bubble smoother outer” and there were still an awful lot of little air bubbles. If you’re more patient than I am, feel free to turn yours so the decal is on the inside.) Choose a paper pattern to go behind it and place the backing on the frame.
Display in your home or office, changing the background paper as often as desired.
