Makeover for a Triple Picture Frame

I like to decorate my house with items in which I can change items that are IN them.

Old Mason jars,  cloches from vintage cheese domes, and frames work well for this.

I had this triple picture frame from cutouts from vintage magazines up on my cabinets in my kitchen for the last three years and it was time for a makeover:

Here is the new update. I put mod podged leftover canvas onto thin backer cardboard that I save from each 12x12 cardstock pad that I buy. Burlap would also work well. Then I took some large cardstock sticker letters and spray painted them red, and glued  them on the three rectangles of canvas. Stenciling, Cricut letters or handpainting the letters would also work well. Here it is:

I really like how much better it looks. Then I had an awesome idea on how to change up the frame once in a while when the mood strikes.

How is this one for July and Independence Day coming this summer? I cut out a fabric red star from my fabric stash, and traced two stars on the canvas and painted it with some acrylic paint I had on hand. I used a template that I also had on hand:

I am going to make more. "BOO" for October. Fabric prints for August, or maybe watermelon prints. Looking for owl prints for Sept...ideas are growing now.

Cost: Free. Used items on hand.

Yippee for free and fun craft makeover projects!
