Sit down. Are you ready? I made a craft.

I am not crafty. 
I would love to be.
But I am not.

When I see a {very} simple craft, I go with it and make it my own.  Just as I did with this frame.

Simple.
Cheap.

My kind of craft.

Items needed
inexpensive floral and greenery to match your decor or season
hot glue gun
matted frame {without glass}
wire clippers


Gather your materials as well as some bandages for your many glue gun burns.
Put on your apron just to get in the right mood.
Turn on the music.  Whatever gets your crafty-ness going.

Clip off the flowers and leaves so you just have the pretty "heads" left.

Glue largest flowers to the cardboard backing exposed in your frame.
Continue adding the smaller flowers and greenery until the cardboard is completely covered and you are happy with the look.

Find a pretty stand and put the frame wherever you choose.  Mine is in my kitchen in an unused corner.
Because I already owned the frame, this craft cost me $6.
Cheap is what I am all about.
(huh?)

The possibilities with this craft are endless.
I will be doing a Christmas themed frame with bells and ornaments.
My kids want to do a Halloween themed frame with pumpkins or skulls.
And they also want to make one that matches their bedroom decor.

Simple.

Cheap and Simple make Momma happy.

Getting many glue gun burns....umm...not so much.

Now that is a really good idea. I really like that. I might just do that. It looks fantastic, too!

That's pretty cool. I just wish I were crafty. *sigh*

Look at you getting all crafty! Very nice! I might even be able to do that one. Would it be wrong to make hubby do the gluing so I wouldn't get burned?

Jen said...

Now that is awesome. I think that I could do that!

Very pretty and great idea! And I think I have a frame hanging around that work perfect for that!

I'm not crafty either, unless you consider hiding cupcakes in the garage so your kids can't find them crafty. Looks like an awesome fall themed idea! Go you!

Very nice!!!

But after gluing my fingers together with super glue while fixing one of the Little One's toys, I'm not sure I'm ready for a hot glue gun.

Pretty! But I'm still a little afraid of the hot glue gun after the last time I used it. ouch!
