A couple months ago I made "picture frames" out of ceiling fan blades I found at the Goodwill store. I still had 1 more left and wanted to make a sign for my craft room and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I painted the blade with acrylics, and I'm not an artist by any means, so I did my best at representing the little craftster guys.

great job! I think my favorite might be the spool of thread haha!

I am very sorry to anyone wishing to look at the pictures that I have previously posted. Photobucket deleted my account without warning.  :/

What a clever way to recycle a ceiling fan blade!! I never would have thought of that. It turned out great and I'm sure it will make a fantastic addition to your craft room.

I think my favorite is the little spool guy, too!! Cheesy

I love that you've reused materials that may have otherwise gone to waste.  GREAT job!
