Custom Ceramic Tile

I love giving personal hand made gifts for special occasions that look expensive but are actually very affordable.  For under $10 and with the use of stencils you can make custom home decor from your local hard ware store and your local craft store.  Listed below are the products I used and here is the Video Tutorial for this project.

From WalMart:

Folk Art Enamel Paints in - Light Blue, Black and Metallic Gold

From Hardware Store:

12 X 12 Ceramic Tile

Cricut Cartridges:

Elegant Cakes: BrdFlr-s "R"
Library Fonts - F2 for all other lettering

"Give Thanks" ~ Home Decor With Cricut

I've been cleaning out closets lately and stumbled across this empty wood frame.  I didn't have any pictures that size that needed framing so I began to ponder it's other possibilities for a craft project.  With the Holidays coming up I saw the potential for dressing it up in a temporary way for the each season.  I went to Cricut Craft room to see what sort of Thanksgiving themed projects they had that would make a good wall decoration.  I am very pleased with the outcome!  I think it's fun, a little whimsical and will go so well with the rest of my Fall themed decorations.  I've listed below the supplies as well as Cricut cartridges I used for this project.
