Hi crafty friends! Its Jennifer here on the blog to share one of the fabulous 3D Frameables with you! May is definitely time for high school and college graduations! The Congrats-Hat Word N Shape is perfect to display your favorite grad! My first born graduated high school last year and I used one of my favorite photos of her!
I began by painting my Word N Shape pieces with black acrylic paint.
For the Hat, I added a coat of gold glitter paint over the black for added bling!
I used the Deco Frame with Base which is one three designs available. Using my Beacon Adhesive, I covered the frame as well as the smaller oval of the base with patterned paper. Fun fact: I actually used wedding paper that I had in my stash! I thought it would work perfect! I used my x-acto knife and sanding tool to smooth off the extra edges.
For the base of the frame and larger oval, I painted each with chalk paint in grey.
I again used my Beacon to adhere the frame pieces together. I then used clips to hold them together as the adhesive dried.
I added smaller embellishments to the frame such as stickers and enamel dots.
Here is a close up of the Hat with the gold glitter! I love how it turned out!
I sanded the edges of my Congrats Word to give it a distressed look as well as help it stand out on the base.
