It's now official— one really can put off spring cleaning by crafting these cute little doodle frames, since they may just come in handy during and after the cleaning! How's that for some crafty justification for that which is really procrastination? And of course some readers have started to ask for Passover crafts, so this meets their needs as well, since I really can't bear to let down my gracious readers!
These cute little doodle frames will hang on the doors of each room in our home and hopefully be filled with messages like "Clean and Ready for Pesach" or "Kosher L'Pesach" or "Sparkling Clean for Pesach" I never realized that a massive spring cleaning could be pre-empted by a crafting project, but I love this one and can't wait to start hanging them. And the best part will be seeing them all sporting nice messages at the end of the hard work which awaits during the next few weeks.
I have a feeling that the little frame on my studio door may just have to say "Better Luck Next Year" Sigh.
- water color paper
- water color paints
- a permanent black marker
- a hole punch
- a mug or glass or something round to use as a circle template
Start by tracing around a glass on your water color paper, leaving a nice sized border around the circle. Start doodling away until you're happy with the results. Fill in the white areas with water colors, cut out the center, and the entire shape, and punch a hole and hang with a ribbon. To add a message, simply tape a round piece of paper to the back of the frame. Or if you'd like to make something that you could use for a few years, make your frame with a second layer on the back that would allow you to slip the little piece of paper into the frame. Enjoy, and happy cleaning.
