Craft Cuts: This Is Us Frame

With all of the farmhouse art trends going on right now, I couldn’t help but try my hand with making some of it. I combined the beautiful script words from Craft Cuts with the Glue Squares® to make this fun project. My favorite part of the frame is the fact that I can change the photo whenever I want, without having to take apart a frame.

Here's what you do:
Sand the wood block and cover the entire bloc with Mushroom paint. You might have to put a couple of layers of paint to even out the color on all areas. Set aside to dry.

Paint the small wood clip with more Mushroom paint. 

Once everything is dried, set the wood words onto the wood block making sure to space words so that there is room for a 4" x 6" photo to be placed in between. Adhere the wood pieces to each using Glue Squares. 

Adhere the clip right underneath the “this” word with Glue Squares. 

Now, hang your block and place your most current/favorite photos into the clip.
