The caption above reads "We heart (name)" and the framed images are of friends and relatives you can help your baby know and remember, even if they can't be close by.
First, have your images converted to black and white and printed in the same size — 5 inches by 7 inches is shown.
Next, round up your frames. Because the frames will be painted, it doesn't matter if they don't match.
Then, after removing the glass and backing, sand and clean your frames. You'll want to remove any dirt or finish that can prevent the spray paint from creating a smooth, consistent finish. Now, in a well-ventilated area, prime your frames, using a good quality primer. Once the primer has dried, you can apply your first coat of paint. Allowing ample drying time between coats, continue applying coats of the spray paint until you are satisfied with the coverage.
While your paint is drying, create your picture layouts. Use wrapping paper, available inexpensively at Hobby Lobby or HomeGoods, in a variety of trendy patterns and colors to create the photo backdrop.
Cut a piece of cardboard that will fit your frame and cover with the wrapping paper, using tape on the back to hold it in place. Now, affix your photograph using four pieces of ripped washi tape, as shown. Don't use originals or pictures you don't have digital copies of, as the washi tape could damage your picture over time.
Once the frames are dry, reassemble them, adding in your paper-covered cardboard and pictures. The fabric letters are hung using double-sided tape and the frames are hung on small picture-hanger nails.
