I hope everyone has had a good week so far! Our week has been busy but, we are looking forward to the weekend and a family gathering.
Today, I wanted to share an easy craft with you.
First, find a frame and spray paint it. I started with this ugly frame and spray painted it Krylon hammered copper. I know it’s hard to tell from the photo, but it’s kind of a weird faded black. The people who lived in the house before us were avid golfers and left the print here for us.
Now, I don’t have anything against golf…just not a fan. In fact, if anyone is interested in the print I will mail it to you. First one to email me (happyhodgepodgehome at yahoo dot com) can have it!
Next, dismantle a couple of pine cones. Try to leave the “petals” intact when you take it apart.
Cover a piece of foam poster board (cut to fit just inside the frame) with some fabric. I chose this cream colored knit because I really liked the texture. Stretch the fabric on tight (try not to leave bunches in the back) and hot glue it to the poster board.
Lay out your petals and beads the way you want them and hot glue them into place. I used suede strips (found on a spool in most craft stores) to make the stems. You could also use ribbon if you want.
Place your picture in the frame and find a nice place for it!
This is a very easy and inexpensive craft that can be modified in a lot of different ways! Have fun creating!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! )
