New Front Door Decor

My New Front Door Decor...
I decided it was time for a change on my front door.
A change from my typical wreath that I always have.
I was at Michael's the other day and I saw that they had these wooden frames on sale.  I've always wanted to do something like this, but I never found anything that I really liked....until now.
I went ahead and snatched up the frame and went in search for something to put in the middle of it.
I then stumbled upon this cross to put in the middle and it was on sale for 99 cents!  Score!
So I brought everything home and got to work this past weekend.
I also bought some paint from Wal-Mart and got started...
I really love this color of blue.  It reminds me of the beach and it's even brighter in person.
I also love this orange-ish, melon color too.  I would really love to have a kitchen this color.  I think it's so pretty!
And here's the finished product...
My genius husband thought of the idea to use fishing line to tie the cross on to the frame.  I already had the yellow ribbon and thought that it would be a another fun color to add to the scheme.  All together this little project cost me around $8.  Not too bad if you ask me!
Hope you enjoyed it!  I know I'm going to enjoy my new decor this Summer!

  1. Absolutely LOVE your door décor! Have been trying to figure out how to express our faith in a unique way - this is it! We live in a townhouse community with strict rules about what can go in the yard, flags, etc, but the door is our own territory! Thanks so much - am going to "steal" your idea! Off to Hobby Lobby tomorrow!

  2. That decor is so cool! Especially because you made it yourself. Anyone can go out and buy it but very few people can say they built it themselves. You are one of those few, you should be proud of what you have created. A job well done. It might be the best job I have seen on any decorations! Thanks.
