Hi there! Now I am just having fun with my new Christmas decor. I am excited to show you these super easy Naughty and Nice Christmas Printables with Dollar Tree frames!
The Grinch theme I started is expanding with each of these and I love it. There are several more ideas spinning in my head and I hope I have the time to get them done.
What I love about this project is that I can remove the Christmas printables and add my own photos or prints for different holidays. Which means I can use them all year round.
They are perfect for adding pics of my sweet grand daughter and the black and white buffalo check will go nicely with the rest of my decor.

Step 1: Paint Your Frames
Remove the inside from the frames and give them a couple of coats of white paint. I used flat white spray paint but you could brush on some white chalk paint if you like that better.
Set the frames aside to dry.
Step 2: Add Fabric To Cardboard Piece
I wanted to cover the inside piece of the frame with some buffalo check fabric.
First cut a piece of fabric about and inch bigger than the back piece all the way around.
So I used my “Mod Podge” (what I am using is a different brand but Mod Podge does the same thing) and brushed it over the top of the piece.
Once it is coated with the Mod Podge, lay your piece of fabric over the Mod Podge and smooth it down.
Cut the fabric at the top from the edge to the clip.
Then cut a little notch or “circle” to allow the base of the clip to be on top of the fabric. You can tuck the rest of the fabric under the clip. This allows the clip to rest on top of the fabric.
It looks like it is one piece.
Once the fabric is on, give it another coat with the Mod Podge. When it is dry it seals the fabric and adheres it better to the cardboard piece.
Set the pieces aside to dry completely.
Step 3: Distress The Painted Dollar Tree Frames
This step is so easy.
Use a sanding block to sand away some of the white paint from the frames to create a distressed look.
When you are finished sanding use a cloth to remove the paint dust. I actually had to wipe off the entire work space.
But I love the distressed look and it was worth it.
Step 4: Put The Frames Back Together
Grab the fabric covered cardboard pieces and trim the extra fabric from the edges.
Cut right up to the cardboard.
Once the fabric is cut you can add them back into their frames.
Step 5: Print and Cut The Grinch Christmas Printables

Use a paper trimmer or paper cutter to trim to size. I wanted mine to be approximately 4×6. The size of a standard photo.
Once they are cut, clip them into the frame.
Step 6: Finishing Up!
Once you clip the cute Grinch printables into the frame you are done and ready to display them as part of your Holiday Grinch decor! Yay you!!!
I just love the way they turned out and I love that I can use them all year long.

I love the buffalo check fabric. It just goes with anything. If you like a farmhouse theme in your house then these are perfect for you.
They look so great with my other Grinch items too. The buffalo check table runner is also from the Dollar Tree. It is a scarf.
I have found that different Dollar Tree stores carry different items. I usually make a point to visit stores wherever we visit. It is fun too. Who doesn’t love the Dollar Tree?
I hope you like it and will run out to the Dollar Tree to see if you can find some fun frames to try this yourself.
Happy Christmas crafting!
