Flower Frame

Here is the latest Flower Frame I made! 

I forgot to take pictures during the project, so I will just let you know what I did.

You will need...

1. A frame
      *I used a frame I already had and spray painted it white, then sanded the edges to give it the worn look
2. Material for flowers
     *I used some left over black material that I already had
3. Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks

First I cut strips of material and folded them in quarters, length wise (to make it thicker...you could skip this step), then when it was a thin strip (about 1/4-1/2 inch) I rolled it from one end to the other creating the flower. I added hot glue as I went to keep it in place. Use just a little hot glue otherwise it will come out the edges. I made three flowers of different sizes and then glued them together. After that, I picked a corner and glued them on! 

This would be a great project for Mother's Day or a Birthday gift. I was going to add my son's hand prints and create something like this...

However, he did NOT want me to put his hands on the paper...he only wanted the paint on his hands! 

I would love to know if you tried this project!
