Wooden Frame Makeover with Plaid Crafts and Cricut
Make any wooden frame look ”golden” by giving it a mini makeover using Plaid paint and the Cricut Explore!
- wood frame
- foam brush
- masking/painters tape
- Folk Art Metallics acrylic paint – Pure Gold
- Folk Art Chunky Glitter acrylic paint – Chunky Gold
- Cricut Explore Air
- Light Grip Mat
- Cricut Gold Glitter Vinyl with Strong Grip Transfer Tape
Mask off area to be painted with masking/painters tape. In this case the glass was attached to the frame so I taped along the edge of the glass as well.
Apply several coats of gold paint to the frame (I did two) – allow to dry between coats.
Apply several coats of glitter paint – allow to dry between coats. This paint looks like glue with glitter in it – so it will go on milky white. I did three coats – the more coats you apply the more glittery your project will be!
Create your phrase in Cricut Design Space, cut out of glitter vinyl and apply directly to the mat. For glitter vinyl you need strong grip transfer tape. *Quick Tip: The strong grip transfer tape is INCLUDED in the sampler. It is the first thing on the roll so just unroll the entire sampler and you’ll find it.*
Reassemble the frame and add your photo.
