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 cut the felt into 1 inch strips.
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?
