Check this idea out!

http://craftychicmommy.blogspot.com/2011/04/glass-vinyl-sign-knockoff.html

I have some random pieces of glass laying around my garage and I had no idea what I was going to do with them, until now! 

So instead I'm going to make my own frames from scrap wood I have laying around the garage and liquid nail glue them to my glass to make these great signs!  I will post pictures once I'm done!  Just had to share with you all!
I've seen these beauties in a few gift stores around town with a hefty price tag attached to them. 


Purchasing one at $100 would mean my family wouldn't eat for a week so I decided to make my own....the cost you ask??
Under 10 BUCKS!!

I purchased an unfinished poster frame from the dollar store for $5 and painted it black.


I roughed up the edges with my sander
then stained it with my Mini Wax dark walnut stain.

I printed my vinyl letters on my Cricut machine and stuck them onto the front of my piece of plexi glass (this was the hardest part, getting them centred and straight).

Ok so it's not glass like the the big ticket frames but once you get it on your wall you could never tell the difference.
