Old Door Frame & A Screen Window - Ideas?

autumnluvrJuly 4, 2004

I know somewhere Ive seen crafty things done with these items. Somewhere Ive seen how people paint a scene on the screen and decoreate with XMas Lights but cant find where Ive seen that idea. Also I found this old wooden door or maybe its a large window frame, it has two sides and is open, what can I make of these things? You all have wonderful and creative minds, please help!

I saw an old frame with screen stapled to it and painted yesterday.It seems to be the new rage around here.screen is cheap(just find a screened in patio with a big dog like mine and watch their curb for awhile Autunm lol).The stuff I looked at yesterday appeared to be acrylics.I've seen some cheap paint kits at Michaels.A real easy method would be to stick a coloring book page under the screen,if you don't have drawing skills.Keep it simple(birds,fish,bears.)Sandy

On the same idea as previous "junkie" we painted a scene for halloween, it was an entrance to the spooky yard out back. Painted the screen with acrylics with a witch, cats, etc. (stuck it in the ground near entrance to my home. scary! Have fun. Craftylady_Ma.
