This is a lovely picture of my nieces and their sweet momma. I love them and this picture. But the frame is what I need so the picture must find a new home for the fall season. Sorry girls, still love you!!
These are the materials I will be using in this frame. Some cute napkins I found at Hobby Lobby(50%) off!! The flower, well it was part of my fall flower collection from previous years. I took it off the stem and decided to use it to revamp the frame.
Here is what I did with all three objects. I love it. Whatcha think? A keeper? So, I wrapped the napkin around the cardboard that comes with the frame. I hot glued the flower on. Easy as that.
Ugly frames I bought from Savers. They were gold. But they were $2 so nothing a little spray paint can't fix!! I use old cardboard boxes to paint on.
This is the finished product. Again, the flowers were from years past. I wish I would have taken a separate picture of them but I forgot. I took the flowers off the stem and off the plastic this that holds the petals on. layered them back onto each other. I then wrapped burlap around the card board from the frames and put it all together. This look wasn't my actual thought, but my original thought failed and somehow this emerged. I really love it. I actually smiled when I realized my mistake turned out good.

My mantel after with all the elements added.

This is the front entry way, or part of it. I did the same thing with another flower to this frame.
You know how I said I collect cheese domes. Well here is an example of what I do with them. ps: I collect Willow Tree too. :D
A view of the flower frames. I think I am going to go buy plates or something to put on either side. Make it more substantial. The pillow was a birthday gift and I just love it. Again, made from burlap!!
The pillow close up!! Isn't it lovely. In case you didn't know burlap is very trendy right now. And in case you didn't know, burlap is very CHEAP!!!!!!
I hope you like what I have done so far. I think this has been the longest blog post of my blogging life so far. Hope you were able to stick through it and enjoy. As I tweak and decorate more I will post those. Happy Harvest decorating!!!
