This month’s Movie Monday Challange is here again! So for something a little different we got to chose our movie as long as it was based on Easter or Spring! So of course with all of the fun bunny things I have been making lately, I wanted to make something about an all-time favourite movie that my kids loved when they were little. The Tale of Peter Rabbit, not only did they love the movie but they also adored the books! So with some help of Miss Mustard Milk Paint and an old frame, I’m sharing my repurposed Peter Rabbit Frame for the movie challenge.
Repurposed Peter Rabbit Frame
- Old Frame – Or you can find this one completed over in my SHOP!
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – I used Farmhouse White for this project
- Miss Mustard Seed Beeswax
- Paint Brush
- Soft Cloth
- Silhouette Cameo Machine
- Yellow Scrapbooking Paper – You can use any colour you like really.
- White Vinyl
- Transfer paper
- Scrapbooking Double Sided Tape
- Bunny Template – I hand drew mine but Pinterest has plenty of free ones that you can choose from. Just adapt them to your frame size.
- Visoflex – Same as heat and bond
- Scrap White Material
It most certainly was one of my favourite things to do when my kids were little and read to them all of Beatrix Potter Books! But The Tale of Peter Rabbit was the main one that made my kid’s eyes light up like dinner plates. We would snuggle on the lounge and read away, with lots of giggles of course. Gee those happy memories make my heart sing.
Step 1 – Mix 1 part water and one part milk mix in a plastic cup. Leave to let the paint combine.
Step 2 – Using your Silhouette Machine create the following saying:
” Once upon a time
there were four little
rabbits, and their names were —
– Beatrix Potter
Send the verse to cut onto the white Vinyl. Weed out any excess vinyl. Place the transfer paper over the top and using a store card burnish the lettering to ensure it transfers. Cut the scrapbooking paper down to the size of the backing piece of your frame. Attach with double-sided scrapbooking tape. Transfer over the lettering.
Be very gentle when removing the transfer paper as you don’t want to rip the paper. This is why I recommend only using scrapbooking paper as it is a lot thicker.
Step 3 – Mix your MMS paint before applying to the frame. Then apply 3 coats to your frame letting each coat dry in between. Make sure you also mix your paint with each coat that you apply.
If the frame is glossy at all be sure to give it a good sand before you commence painting.
Step 6 – Trace out your bunny template onto the Visoflex. Make sure you flip the template so you get two bunnies facing each other. Cut out the bunnies and iron them to the wrong side of your material. Cut around the lines and remove the backing paper.
Step 8 – Pop all of your hard work back into the frame.
And there you have a sweet repurposed frame to adorn your walls or perhaps give away as a gift. Be sure to check out below what my sweet blogging pals got up to for this month’s Movie Monday Challenge!
