Dollar Tree DIY Sign Art Project

3 Materials
20 Minutes

Give this easy Dollar Tree DIY sign art project a try!

This craft took just a few minutes and cost only $2. Yes, that’s correct…only $2. I just love a project that costs less than than a cup of coffee.

I had picked up this 8 x 10 inch frame and wall transfer from  Dollar Tree. The detail in the frame caught my eye. I figured once it was painted, no one will realize that it is plastic.

I began by taking the frame apart and giving the glass a good cleaning. Next, the bargain frame received a quick coat of my favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, in French Linen. I love this gray, taupe color that just looks great with everything. It took two coats of this paint to completely cover the frame.

Between coats of paint, I worked on the transfer. I cut apart the transfer. It wasn’t necessary to do that, but I wanted to space it out on the glass. Once I was happy with the placement, I carefully placed the transfer on the glass.

When the frame was dry, I pulled back the prongs that are meant to keep the glass in place so they wouldn’t show through. I added a dab of hot glue to each corner to secure the glass in place.
