Turn a picture frame into a cool, trendy sign in minutes! A customized gift for anyone, especially trendy people.
All you need is:

A picture frame with a glass panel.

Spray paint.

Sticky Letters.

Washi tape (optional)
I started by dismantling and cleaning my glass pieces. I have two but I only needed one of them, that's why I'm confident that you can do this project with a regular picture frame if you remove the backing and secure it with hot glue.
I started sticking my letters as straight as I could using my green tape as guidance.
Once on, I removed the green tape. This is a good time to make sure your glass is squeaky clean, no streaks or fingerprints, ok?
I took my clean piece of glass over to my garage, covered the floor area with foil (or anything else, that's what I had in hand). I sprayed several coats lightly over the entire glass keeping a good distance and in all directions.
I let the paint dry completely for about 30 minutes but you're best following your brand's instructions. I then proceeded to removing the lettering with an exacto knife trying not to scratch off the paint as I lifted the sticker off the glass.
5 minutes latter...TA DA!!
Here is where I started playing with the frame itself. Originally I was going to cover the entire frame with a wide sparkly tape but I liked the simplicity of the washi-tape, it was more modern and appropriate for this particular project.
