I had 2 reasons for wanting a copy of it: my son would love it and it would make a great “certificate” for the young children at church memorizing the books of the Bible in order.
So Jennifer sent me a copy of her take on the same poster. I had it printed at Staples onto 11″ by 17″ paper for $2 (I had 2 made so $4.) I wanted to frame one of them but had a difficult time finding a 11′ by 17″ frame for less than $15, out of my price range.
I looked all around my “artwork” and some empty frames we had on hand at home and found a pair of tropical prints which I had never really cared for.
While the frame was not exactly 11″ by 17″ it could accomodate the print with a little extra room on each side.
I decided to spray the frame teal to match some of the writing and because I had teal spray paint on hand.
On either side of the poster I added a thin orange ribbon.
I tucked everyting back into the newly paint frame with cleaned glass.
This is a surprise Easter/birthday gift for my darling son who was born on Palm Sunday 30 years ago.
What’s your frugal answer to hanging art?
