Easter Picture DIY

Easy Easter Art
     This Easter Art DIY can be made in minutes and is so pretty.  It has a beautiful message and is a wonderful gift too.  I made this last year when I needed a gift for some neighbors I visit and so after looking at pinterest this is what I came up with. 

      I love the song "I Know That My Redeemer Lives" it is so uplifting and so I loved this message for Easter that is shaped like an egg out of the words of the song. 

      I decided to frame it and picked up an 8 x 10 frame from the dollar store that was gold.  Then I headed to the craft store to buy some Easter colored paper that wouldn't detract from the message and really felt like Easter.  I found the scrapbook paper at Michael's and it made it all look great.  

     The message was printed from this site Click Here

      I copied it and then took the paper from the 8 x 10 frame that was used as a mat for a 5 x 7 picture size.  

     Take the mat and with a pencil, outline around the outside of the mat centering the song words in the 5 x 7 opening.  Be careful to get it level and evenly spaced in the center of the opening. Then cut around the pencil lines so it will fit the mat and frame.

Next trace the opening on the back of your colored scrapbook paper.  Make a hole in the center of the paper and cut towards the corners so you can get exactly into the corner.  Then cut carefully on the straight lines around the opening.  

You can frame the song now and be finished or you can add an embellishment to the outside of the frame.  I think that this makes it so much more personal and cute. 

 I found out how to make the flowers on pinterest (of course)!  and they were really not hard at all.  I went back to provide a link for you but they have closed the site.  Rather than go through a long explanation that I have no pictures for, it would be easier for you to look at the many flowers ideas on pinterest like these: #1, #2, #3 and add one of them to your frame.  If you have questions about them please contact me and I will try to address them quickly. You could also add a purchased flower or any decoration you want. 

 That's all there is to it!  Have fun!
