Crazy Christmas Crafter: The Creative Crate!

Well, Hello I Heart Naptime Readers :) !!!
It’s Stacie…the craZy one behind The CrEaTiVe Crate…and I am sooo excited that Jamielyn has invited me to guest post in her CraZy Christmas Crafters event!! 

Hasn’t it been FuN so far?!!  What FaBULouS projects …and what an ALL-STAR line-up! :)  

Anyhoo….Christmas really is just around the corner, so today I am going to share with you one of my {simple and inexpensive} Christmas gift ideas:

{DIY} Beadboard Photo Display

First I cut a piece of beadboard to the size that you want. {mine was 9 1/2″ x 10″ …and I used a 4 x 6 photo} 

Then… trace your photo on the foam board {that I bought at the dollar store}…
Then cut out with exact-o knife…

Then I used  spray adhesive…and sprayed my  foam board with a good even coat…and stuck my photo on…

Then on the beadboard I painted on stain over the whole board…then wiped most of it off except for in the cracks…

Then tied a piece of netting around the bottom…

And there ya have it!!  A super easy inexpensive gift for any parent or grandparent on your list!

Jamielyn…thanks so much for having me!!

HapPy {early} Holidays Everyone!!


Thanks Stacie for sharing such a cute gift! I love anything with bead board. This is so simple anyone could do this! Also don’t forget Home Depot will cut wood down for free!
