Tie Dying

Try a little Tie Dying for a summer activity, you can get kits now a days that are so simple and easy, and your kids will love the final results. It also makes a great Young Womens project, just have the girls bring something white (shirts, socks, bandanas, etc.)

These ones we made for the 4th of July.

Bead Board Frame

When we were traveling this last week I went in a cute little Home Decor store and they had some adorable bead board frames. But of course I couldn't bring myself to pay the price and I figured that they would be a pretty simple project. So here is my version.

Items needed:
Bead Board
Scroll Saw
Sand Paper

1st I took some scrap bead board that I had in my garage from a previous project and I traced a 5X7 mat so that I had the appropriate dimensions, and them I cut it out on a scroll saw.
2nd I trimmed the back with some thin pieces of wood that I just found at my local lumber store in the base board section I figured that would give the frame a little more thickness so that it wouldn't be just a thin piece of bead board.
Last I sanded it painted it and antiqued it just the way that I wanted it.
I thing it turned out awesome and I see more of these in my future. Maybe square ones with square picture openings.
