Baby Gift Idea...Custom Frame

This was a custom order for the local store! The baby was being born on Tuesday...thus the saying. Here are the supplies I used:
Ballet Slipper Pink Krylon Spray paint
Unfinished Wood frame from Hobby Lobby
Glass and backer from another frame

Here is the frame after the paint, but before I applied vinyl.

I laid it out to make sure everything was how I wanted it.
I used Valspar antiquing glaze on the edges. I love the depth it gives the frame.

Here it is with the glass in the frame. (See my cute cast iron birds....fifty cents each at a yard sale!)
I think it is a fantastic baby gift!


  1. I agree it is a fantastic baby gift and I love the colors. But I am really lusting after the cast iron birds!!

  2. It's a wonderful gift!! You did a great job on the font also. How did you get the lettering on, you said vinyl? Did you run it thru your printer? Thank You! The wrapping is perfect, it's all in the packaging!


  3. Bravo, it is very beautiful and pretty:))
