Welcome October. . .

I thought I'd start the month off with a super simple craft project, and I mean simple! I'm using some ribbon I bought years ago at Wal-Mart for 88 cents to make a picture mat. I have the cutest print from an old Mary Engelbreit magazine. I know the picture doesn't show up very well, but the message says, 'The best way to predict the future is to create it.' I bought the frame at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I think it cost $2.00.

#1. . . measure & cut the ribbon for all 4 sides.
#2. . . make double sided tape by rolling small pieces of tape, attach ribbon on left & right, then top & bottom.

#3. . . place picture in frame, replace picture back & there you have it, a cute Halloween picture! I told you it was super simple. I will change the picture each month using other prints from ME magazine.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
