This project was very inexpensive to make. The picture frames were all purchased at a thrift store and the headboard frame was made from scrap lumber. We spelled out "sweet dreams" and embellished each letter with flowers. Create your own personalized message or spell out your child's name.
drill with 1/16th bit and regular drill bit for screws
(11) 8" x 10" wooden frames varied looks
(11) sheets of card stock paper
yellow paint — pint
pink paint — craft size
white paint (for trim pieces)
paintbrushes in various sizes
(22) small eye hooks
(11) small nails
(4) longer nails for trim to go into wall studs
pieces of salvaged trim — enough for frame
(4) flat L-brackets with screws
Remove the glass and paper from the picture frames. Paint all frames the same color — we painted ours yellow. Apply two coats if necessary.
Cut card stock paper to fit snugly into each frame. Print out large letters from a computer and trace them onto the paper. Paint each of the letters. Let dry and add flower stickers around each letter.
Use a small drill bit to make two holes in the top of each wooden frame. Then screw in the small eye bolts.
