The Joy of Pyrex - Calendar Art

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    My sweet sister in law gifted me this wonderful Pyrex calendar for Christmas, and I knew it needed to be displayed in an extra special manner

I bought this large poster sized picture frame at a garage sale for $1.00, and then I put to use my wonderful polka wrapping paper that I picked up at good will for $0.99.

I trimmed the wrapping paper so it was the same size as the picture frame

I used this glue runner to attach the wrapping paper to the card board behind the picture frame. 

Next I laid out the calendar, attempting to make straight rows. This served to be trickier then expected

I added a bit of ribbon for a special touch

TA DA!! Sorry the final picture came out poor, but the glair would not go away. 

I think it came out really sweet, and this wall in my kitchen needed a picture so it worked out fantastically. 

Thank you to my sweet sister in law for giving me the wonderful calendar to enjoy!
