Framed Notes | DIY Tips

When decorating my home, I always try to think outside of the box with how I display items.    Whether it be reusing an old ladder as a shelf,  a rake as a wine glass holder, or like todays Tip Tuesday project; a frame to display a note from a loved one.

I think it is so important to let the memories of our loved ones who have passed before us, to live on.   I was cleaning out my file box today and came across a stack of letters from my beautiful Grandma Shirley who passed away November 18, 2009.  The letter was written on an rsvp card to our wedding which she wasn’t able to attend due to her sickness.     The note made me cry and I feel like she really is part of my story- and wanted to display the letter in my office.

First, I found a frame that would show off all of the letter, without cutting any of her writing off.

Next I made my own matte by simply measuring the glass and cutting out a piece of blue constriction paper, taping the letter to the paper, and inserted her letter into the frame.

Then found a place to display her letter where I would be reminded of her daily.

What letter will you frame?!

Thanks for reading,
