Rustic Barnyard Frames


My Sister-in-law pinned this to her pinterest board from Craft Warehouse Blog. I thought that it would be a great idea to make it for her Christmas present. Now that is almost the 26th and she has opened her present I can post it.

This is the final product. There are pictures on the reverse side of the white squares. I just didn't want to post pictures of my nephew.


Materials:
3 frames
metal sheets cut to fit the inside of the frame
burlap
brown paint
cream paint
black spray paint
wooden letter
magnetic tape
glue gun
metal clip magnets

Cut the metal to fit the inside of the frame.
Paint the metal brown. If you don't you will be able to see the shiny surface of the metal through the burlap
In the picture below, you can see the metal through the burlap and the how much better it looks with the painted metal surface behind the burlap.
 Cut burlap 1/2" - 1" larger than the metal. Wrap and glue the burlap to the metal sheet.

Glue metal sheet into frame.

Spray metal clip magnets with black spray paint. Paint the wooden letter cream and attach magnetic tape to the back of the letter.

The magnetic tape was not strong enough, so next time I would use larger magnets. I used a stick pin to hold the letter onto the burlap.



Use the clip magnets to hold the pictures in the middle of the frames.
