let’s get started
This Spring Frame Makeover was a fun and easy project to do!
To begin with, I separated the back easel and glass from the frame.
Time for some paint therapy!
I used my chippy brush to brush on Folk Art White paint on the frame and sides.
I purposely left wood unpainted and showing through.
After I removed the excess paint from my brush I then did the same with Folk Arts Ocean View paint.
To give this a more beach look, when the paint is dry you can always lightly sand over the paint with a 220 grit sandpaper.
I found this cute Spring-y plaid scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby and wanted to incorporate this into my Spring Frame Makeover.
I took the back of the frame and used a pencil and drew an around it onto the backside of the scrap book paper.
Once this was outlined, I then used my scissors to cut this out.
I then evenly and liberally applied Mod Podge to the front side of the frame backing and then applied the Mod Podge and smoothed the scrapbook paper down.
For this project, I wanted to add a rustic look for my Spring Frame Makeover so I added mesh burlap ribbon.
I used the frame backing and cut my ribbon just short to fit over the front of this backing.
After I cut the ribbon, I pulled a few strings along each side to give this a frayed look.
Then I liberally applied Mod Podge on top of the scrapbook paper and frame backing.
I applied the burlap mesh ribbon on the Mod Podge.
Next, I placed the frame backing back inside the frame.
Flowers for my Spring Frame Makeover
I grabbed my butterfly pick and started separating the flowers and butterfly from the pick.
Then I laid the leaves and flowers on my frame and rearranged them until I found a layout I loved.
I then tacked the leaves and flowers down with hot glue.
The butterfly was a little tricky.
First it was on a wire stick and I didn’t have my wire cutters so I had to use my scissors (sorry mom)!
Then I had a tough choice of where I wanted my butterfly to be!
So many options!
I finally placed my butterfly to the top of the frame and hot glued her in place!
That is is!
