I’ve been wanting to create something with this for the past nine months.
Then I found this frame one day in a drawer:


And this Dollar Tree frame I have created endless projects with:



Excuse the spray paint under the nails…story of my life.
Now go get some chalk and let’s add the birthday girl’s new age:
And you can use this over and over.

                          Well, for a girl anyway but this would be so easy to make for a boy too.

Happy Birthday!!
Cost breakdown:

smaller frame– Dollar Tree for a buck!
spray paint– this color was Rustoleum Berry Pink and it was free to me because my friend gave me all her spray paint when she was moving across the country. Thanks, “Lissma”!
scrapbook paper– 30 cents at Hobby Lobby on sale last summer.
chalkboard paint– again free thanks to”Lissma”!
Total I spent to create this:
