I have been in a creative rut the last couple of months… I just needed a break to refuel the senses. I had been eyeing these large frames of my girls that I have had up since we moved into our house 7 years ago.
Excuse the horrible pic, but you get the idea. My girls were getting annoyed with them and wanted to take them down. After much thought, an idea popped into the ol’ brain..
Once again, I need a new camera. I decided to re-use the frames by using left over fabric from my pillow covers and use the frames in the family room instead to complement the pillows.
I re-designed my super busy gallery wall into something smaller.
The vinyl I bought at the local mall with the Dr. Seuss’ famous quote- “Oh the Places you’ll go!” This was the only item I spent money on actually for this project. Everything else I “shopped” at home.
It is not easy at all to make out but I made flowers out of toilet paper rolls for a 3-D effect on the large frames. Super easy!
I cut the rolls into 5 semi-equal pieces and hot-glued them into a flower shape.
I then spray painted them a dark grey. Easier said than done. To get into the nooks and crannies I would have preferred to paint them instead. Here is the after-math on my fingers…
With the frames, I used spray adhesive to adhere the fabric onto the cardboard.
I then played around with the flowers until I was happy with their position and hot glued them to the fabric.
Another shot- I owe you the pictures of the other two frames. They are on the opposite wall of the family room. I need to re-take better pictures and I will post them as soon as I can. Now what to do with the large empty wall???
