Concert Poster

So, my awesome hubby got me tickets to see Reba McEntire for Christmas! I know it's going to sound crazy, but I've loved Reba since I was old enough to attempt to sing along!!! We've started a tradition of making posters with the concert pictures, so I thought I would post my new wall hanging!   

I got this frame for $3 at a Christian Re-sale store. I was super excited because not only did the money go to a great cause (they help people in need with food, clothing, household items, furniture, etc) and it was super cheap!!! I paid $10 for the other frame on black Friday last year, so this was a bargain! I thought I was going to have to wait until it rolled around again to get another!!!

So, since the poster wasn't a typical frame, it had thick brown paper glued on the back and was hung like an artist frame. I carefully peeled off the paper around the edges and unscrewed the hanging mechanism. Then, when I was finished, I used my lovely pink hot glue gun to adhere the paper back!

Here is the finished project. I used my Cricut to cut out the words and various scrap paper to add color. I love it!!! Although, I will admit it's a bit large to be hanging in our hallway! LOL. You can see more pictures here.
Sorry they are sideways!!!
