Hello friends! My name is April and I blog about the things I love at Cup of Delight, mostly about crafts and other creative things.
- Wood Photo Frame (found at any craft store)
- Acrylic paint in desired color
- This miracle product:
- Embellishments you may want to add. If you want to make rosettes like the ones I made, you will need three strips of fabric about a foot long.
2. Roll shorter loose end around knot. Roll longer end over loose end a few times to secure it. You should have a small round ball on one end.
3. Wrap rest of the fabric into a flower by loosely twisting and wrapping the long piece around the ball simultaneously. Keep wrapping and twisting in same direction for the whole flower.
4. Glue end piece down with hot glue.
5. To make beaded center, thread one bead on needle and thread and sew down through back of flower. Repeat with two other beads.
6. Secure thread on back with a sewing knot. This s what your flower should look like:
- Give one as a baby gift or grandparent gift, so they can mark the changing age of baby.
- Include colored chalk, so giftee can doodle on frame as he/she likes (Kids and Tweens will love this!)
- For a teacher gift, paint the frame black, like a blackboard, and write the year and teacher's name. (Wait...do they still use blackboards in school these days??)
- Make it your own by doodling your own designs in chalk for the giftee.
- Present it by writing a greeting on the frame for the occasion.
- Make it a photo frame/message board-you can find wooden frames that have a space for a picture and large blank space for the message section.
