I FINALLY made something!!
You want to see it?!
Here ya go...
Summer Frame Wreath
I've been seeing so many fun projects out there using frames so I thought why not jump on the bandwagon. I needed something for our front door since all my wreaths went into storage so I thought this would be a good chance to make something with a frame.
So I went off to Goodwill and found this frame.
I liked that the frame had a little shape to it. Had to laugh at the photo- an outhouse! lol
Who would have had this in their house?!
But I bought it and then decided I wanted it yellow.
So yellow it become.
I spray painted it Hubbell House Golden Maize from Valspar.
And then it sat... for 2 1/2 weeks.
I just wasn't sure how I wanted it decorated.
I thought about flowers like this.
I thought about pinwheels like this one.
But thought I'd do something new.
So I went off to Michael's and bought some fun summery ribbon.
Then came home and made some ribbon medallions.
To learn how to make them check out my Medallion Wreath Tutorial.
Once those were complete, I decided I wanted a little bunting banner.
So out came the scrapbook paper, sticky adhesive, string, and alphabet stickers to create a no sew banner.
Here's how I created it.
Decide how large you want each pennant.
I wanted them to 1 1/2 inches wide.
Draw a line the length of the width.
Then, mark the center point.
From the center point, measure 1 1/2 inches in each direction .
Connect all points.
It will look like a kite.
Cut out and fold along the center line.
Then trim the edges so they are even.
To create the banner, add adhesive to one flap of the pennant. Keep pennant open and place the string in the crease of the pennant. Fold over the flaps so they stick together. Continue until all the pennants are attached to the string.
I then used scrapbook stickers to spell out Welcome.
And just tied the string around the frame.
Back to the Medallions.
I played around with placement of the medallions and when I was happy, I just hot glued them onto the frame.
I placed two in the upper left corner.
Then glued the rest along the bottom.
For the one that is in the corner of the frame, I just place a small piece of cardboard on the back of the frame and hot glued the medallion to it.
Tied a ribbon on the top to use for hanging and its done!
I love how it came out!
I tried to match the colors of the ribbon to our welcome mat.
And here it is on our front door.
Since we are on the ground floor of our apartment complex and the rear apartment, our door is out of the elements so I don't have to worry about the paper bunting getting messed up.
I think it looks pretty good with our welcome mat!
Hope you like it because I love it! :)
I'll be linking up to some of these parties.
