Craft: Frame Calendar Pictures as Gifts
Here is a nice, inexpensive, but still good-looking holiday gift. It's also a good way to recycle old calendar pages.
Find a calendar, either an old one of yours or the ultra-cheap ones that go on sale very late in the year, per perhaps ones from the dollar store. Cut out all the pictures, leaving a bit of a border around it. (You can also use nice looking magazine pages and other such pics.)
Get some matting (those cardboard frames you can get at craft and art stores), or get nice frames at thrift shops or dollar stores...the size of course depends on the size of the calendar pictures. Put the pictures in the mats or frames, and you have a nice looking decoration for someone's wall. You can even decorate the frames yourself with paint or things you can glue on. Use the inexpensive mats and use all the pages of the calendar and give them a set of pictures they can rotate out on their desk or wall.
Ideas for pictures:
- For young boys: Star Wars, Harry Potter, Transformers, Pokemon, pirates, samurai or ninjas, cars, planes, rock stars, astronomy or weather pics.
- For young girls: Horses, puppies, kittens, "hunky" guys, favorite actors, Hollywood, dancing, rock stars.
- For women: Cute or pretty animals, vacation spots and landscapes, favorite actors or singers, handsome men, flowers, things that spark their particular interests.
- For men: Cars, pretty women, cityscapes, action movies, horror or macabre stuff if they're into it, Rock Band or other video games.
