Trash 2 Treasure

In an earlier post I showed you the
wedding window sign I made

I stenciled the letters on the glass

I stopped back by the thrift store where I found this one
and they had another one just like it
so I put down my two dollars and hauled it home

 However the glass was broken in the window
so hubby so very kindly
removed the broken glass

That left me with a window frame
I decided to cover a sturdy piece of cardboard
with burlap fabric and staple it to the empty frame

I then stenciled a background design on it  

 but the paint keep soaking into the burlap
not being one to give up I just keep reapplying the paint

Next I added the words....

and a pretty bow

and a shabby handle

Finished Product

 It's a little different from the one
above but I'm pleased with how
it turned out

Every Little Birdie says
I love turning trash to treasure! 



  1. I really like this! It is very different and I like different! :)
    I could see using this application during any of the fall/ winter holidays to make a really cute decoration for the front door or fireplace!

  2. Cute! love the burlap, the sentiment and great and different way to repurpose an old window! Pinned from Blitzed

  3. I love to see old windows saved and creatively used. These would be great at a country-themed wedding. The couple could take them home to use.
