Felt Roses Picture Frame

How many of you see something you love while you’re out shopping and get home and decide you have to try and make it yourself?

This happens to me a lot and I hope I’m not the only one.

So, I was recently at Pier 1 looking at their candles (because I love their candles) and came across this sweet felt rose picture frame.  I didn’t really put much thought into the frame because I was too focused on candles but when I got home I started thinking more about how cute it was.  Then it dawned on me, “I think I can make it myself!”

I headed to Michael’s to get a cheap wood frame and some sheets of felt.  My total was less than $5.  The only other materials I needed were scissors and my handy dandy glue gun.
I started by figuring out how to make the felt roses.

I cut the felt into 1 inch strips.

Then I cut each strip into 4 equal pieces.
Then I folded each piece in half and used my scissors to round the edges.
I did this a lot!!
This is where you find a good movie to watch.  Just keep cutting.

Once all your pieces are cut, it’s time to plug in the glue gun.  I took each piece and glued the ends together.

Then I glued two pieces together to form the rose.

Once I had a nice pile of roses, I started gluing them in rows to the frame.

I just kept adding rows of roses until the entire frame was covered.

I have to admit that this project turned out pretty darn cute for about a fifth of the price!  It is a little time consuming but definitely worth it.  I kind of wish I would have used pink felt so I could have given to my precious niece.  I guess I’ll be going to back to Michael’s soon to make another one:)

So what do you think?

What have you seen recently at a store that you just had to make yourself?
