Back to School Craft: Vintage Ruler Picture Frame

It's the Back to School edition of Craft Lightning.  You can see more amazing 15 minute back to school crafts by clicking the LINK at the bottom of this post.  Don’t forget to follow along with our Hosts at The Country Chic Cottage,  30 Minute Crafts and Me and My Inklings to see all of the Back to School projects.

I had hoarded collected these cute vintage inspired rulers from Seven Gypsies several years ago and they have been waiting in my craft stash for just the right project.  Now is their time to shine!  This project was completely crafted in under 15 minutes and from my existing stash!

Now, on to my project:



STEP ONE:  Paint the unfinished wooden frame with Lamp Black, let dry.  Distress the Black and White Ruler pieces with Chocolate Brown, let dry.

STEP TWO:  Measure and cut your sections on ruler, then dry fit on the frame.  Once you are pleased with the layout then glue all pieces in place with Aleene's Tacky Glue.  Set aside to dry.

STEP THREE:  Thread black twine through vintage button and tie in a knot.  Attach button to flower and burlap flower to frame.

I inserted a piece of dictionary paper with BACK TO SCHOOL written on it and will insert the First Day of School photo when the kids go back in August!
