One Crafty Momma!

Due to some money issues (meaning that we are broke, haha) I am having to do Emma's room on a budget. That means homemade art work!

I spent approximately $30 for all 9 pieces of 'art work'. The total break down in cost is as follows:

3 frames on clearance from Target -$20
white spray paint -$3
4 frames from the dollar store - $4
2 more small frames - Free (recycled from somewhere else in the house)
contents of frames - Free (made from Photoshop and old craft supplies)
Letter E - $0.99 from Hobby Lobby

The contents of the frames include:

-A painted letter E glued on top of some burlap fabric
-3 frames contain printed scrapbook paper that I cut to size
-Alphabet that my MIL printed off for me (I downloaded it from here)
-3d white plastic letters glued to a thin sheet of card board
-A chipboard heart painted and some scrapbook paper glued in middle, flanked by wings that I painted and glittered
-every. single. day.  printed on white cardstock with little birds on top made from circle punched scrapbook paper and a black felt tipped pen
-hearts punched out of different scraps of scrapbook paper and mounted on white cardstock with foam tape 

I am pretty proud of the way it turned out! I can't wait to get the rest of her room completed!
