Designed By: Dawn Barrett
Time: Approximately 15 minutes
Make a shabby chic frame to bring a bit of happiness into your spring this year. This project can easily be used as a front door decoration if your front door is recessed, as well as an indoor decor item. When making this project as a gift for Mom, an Aunt or grandma, remember to use their favorite flowers, birds, and home decor colors. This will make your project more special and will blend in with colors that are already in the house.
Here's what you need:
- Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Dispenser or All Purpose Glue Dots
- Glue Dots® Pop Up Dots™ - optional for layering and adding dimension to your embellishments
- Flowers (not real)
- Tulle or ribbon
- Wire cutters
- Other embellishments as desired
Here's what you do:
First, remove the frame glass and back. Clean off any glue left behind.
Cut the felt into strips to cover the back of the frame. This will protect your door or wall.
Use Glue Dots Advanced Strength dispenser to adhere the felt strips to the back of your frame.
Use wire cutters to cut flowers and leaves off of the floral bunches.
Arrange your items in a pleasing manner on the front of the frame. Use the Advanced Strength dispenser to secure these embellishments to the frame.
Use tulle or ribbon to create a hanger.
This can easily be turned into a patriotic frame by using red and white flowers along with the blue bird and some patriotic ribbon for the hanger.
