- Frame w/ four space mat. Mine is an 8x10 w/ openings 2.5 by 3.5...mine was $2 on clearance
- Acrylic Paint and white glue
- Graphics program
- Clipart ( I used sheet music from The Graphics Fairy and then options w/ in my graphics progam)
Paint frame w/ color of choice. Mine was Delta's "Salem Green". Don't worry about it being perfect because we're going for aged here. When first color is dry, cover with white glue. Plain white glue....mine was from Staples back to school sale...cheap stuff. When glue is almost dry cover with a different color paint. I used ivory. I'm impatient so I used my blow dryer. The one I keep in my craft room. Not the one I use to dry my hair. Although, it's been known to happen. Crackle crackle will ensue. I went over this with another green mixed w/ glazing medium.
For "NOEL" letters:

Import into graphics program; size as needed; copy for however many letters you need
Choose font and layer letters on top of graphic
Add clipart ( mine is from my graphics program) layer
I printed mine on lightweight cardstock , cut out each letter collage, and framed.
