It’s always fun to decorate the mantel for the holidays.  This vignette repurposes old window frames, transforming them into seasonal greetings with a hint of vintage flair.

After removing the hardware, paint each frame with a different color of American Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Legacy, Everlasting and Serene.

One to two coats of this paint covers the wood beautifully.

When the paint completely dries, seal the frames with Americana Decor Light Satin Varnish.

Print the text, “LOVE, Peace, LATKES,” and beautiful flourishes [found on The Graphics Fairy site] onto regular printer paper or cardstock.  Tape the glass over the paper, and using a glass paint marker, trace over the images.

Cut burlap paper to the same size as the glass.  Position paper, glass and any backing to the frame.
