road side score 2

Okay this is the last frame I scored from my friends aunt.
This feels a little bitter sweet, on the one hand this means I can go thrift store hunting for new frames again. On the other hand this mean I have to go out and look for new frames again, hahaha!

Not that I don't love the hunt, It's just not that fun with screaming kids trying to jump out of the cart.
Anyhoo all good things must come to an end I guess.

I saw this really cute frame wreath on a link party, I feel really bad because I can't find the blog again to give credit where credit is due, sorry...
I decided to make one, It really is a great idea. You can change it with the seasons and it's just a cool alternative to the more traditional wreath.

Here go's...
This is what I started out with

 I took the frame apart and layed out the glass part of the frame. I took some left burlap I had and measured it out to be about an inch bigger then the glass. It doesn't have to be perfect.


Next I hot glued the burlap to the glass...


just flip it over...

Here are some fabric flowers I made but you can use what ever decorations you want...

I took the frame out side, i used bin primer ...


After the primer dried, I used a little black and brown paint and a dry old cloth to the frame. Just to make it look like I used a glaze. 

Then I put it all together...



I used A string of blue beads to hang the frame but you can use ribbon. This was a really easy project. A great way to unwind while the kids were napping!

I didn't mod podge anything because I'm sure I'll be changing the lettering in two or three weeks when fall gets here!
Can't wait!

Hope you enjoyed!
