Valentines & Roses…Tutorial!

 

 

Look what I made this afternoon!

 

 

Bought it like this

 

 

 
Dismantled it like this

 

 

Sorry little girly

 

 

Leftover smocked fabric from a window panel and some batting

 

 

Gives it a fresh new start

 

 

A bagful of fabric roses

 

 

More demolition

 

 

And a few hot glue blisters

 

 

My best kindergarten heart shape

 

 

Pinned on

 

 

Filled  in

 

 

Put back together

 

 

Papered and bumpered!

 

 

Done

Romantic, don’t ya think?

 

 

Oh yeah, I did a crackle/distressed finish on the frame and added a ribbon hanger.

 

It will join my slow-growing inventory at my etsy store,  Blue Creek Home…The Shop.
