I’ve had a few thrift store frames sitting around for awhile and thought I’d see what I could make of them to add to Addie’s bedroom decor. It felt so good to just craft aimlessly and I love how this little frame turned out. Easy art. Cheap art!
The steps are simple. I used a thrift store wooden frame that I picked up for $1.99. I roughed up the edges with some sandpaper and slapped on two coats of white paint. After the frame dried, I roughed up the edges with sandpaper again, paying special attention to the scrolly areas. LOVE the chippy finished look.
To finish the frame, I used spray adhesive to attach a vintage piece of sheet music to the cardboard insert and popped it in the frame. Then, I rolled up a few fabric flowers (do we need a tutorial on these or has everyone seen them a million times over?) and gathered some ribbon, tulle, and faux pearls. I cut a large circle of felt and moved around my embellishments until I loved the ensemble. I hot glued everything down onto the felt and connected it to the corner of the frame. Done!
I have had some requests for a flower accessory how-to, so I thought I’d share my newest flower love, the singed flower rosette. I have been eyeing these flowers for quite a while and I finally got up the nerve to give it a go. It is so simple and really opens the door for endless accessory options. The only critical factor is this: you must use polyester! That’s what melts. If you don’t use a plastic product, you’ll just get smoke, no pretty singed flower. Okay? Okay. So, it’s really quite simple.
