Yet another dollar store project. Are you tired of them yet?? If so…you may want to stop right here…..
I was at my local Dollar Tree picking up things for my classroom and I happened upon these cute, CUTE picture frames.
Yes I bought 3. I have learned that when you find something cute/useful at the dollar store, you get a few.
Having no idea what I was going to do with these, my crafty wheels started turning. Sure they were cute they way they were. They would probably be cute in several different places in my house. But then I got to thinking about my daughter’s room that I have been working on…. and so the inspiration began.
After cleaning and primering them, I spray painted the frames Ballet Pink by Krylon. I took sand paper to the edges and scuffed up the wood a bit. I decided to make the 3 frames into one piece of wall art. I found the perfect ribbon in my stash and went to work.
lot of hot glue later we have this shabby chic piece of wall art for Miss L’s bedroom…
Don’t you love the rosettes
with the pearl centers?! I cut out a circle of felt, tied one end of a strip of ribbon (about 12 in long) in a knot, and glued the knot to the center of the felt. Then you twist the remaining ribbon and wrap it around the knot, gluing it to the felt as you go. You can add buttons, pearls, beads, jewels, rhinestones, etc. to the center of the rosette to embellish.
