Cheap, Chic, Wall Art

I got these frames last fall 90% off at my favorite store Hobby Lobby. I loved the detail, but not the hideous color, so what did I do? Spray paint the little lovelies of course! I have been waiting to do something fun with them.
I found these cute metal letters at Hobby Lobby today 50% off. Yes, I am a Hobby Lobby addict and am there at least 3 times a week. I am not ashamed to admit it!

This is the final product! I added some cute scrapbook paper, glue gunned the letters on, and I love how they turned out! One as a thank you gift for a friend, and one for me of course!
cost rundown-
frames- $1 a piece
metal letters- $1.50 a piece
scrapbook paper -.50 cents a piece
total for both -6 bucks!

I love these!!! so glad I found your blog. I have always wanted to buy the letters, being a Hobby Lobby addict myself, but felt they needed a little more pizazz and since nothing came to mind immediately, never bought them. Thanks for the idea.
