"Grow" Flowers Frame

If you weren't able to check out my tutorial on Someday Crafts last week, here it is! :)

Today I am going to show you how to make a simple frame for a little girl's room. I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter and I am slowly starting to decorate her room. I am doing this one small project at at time and this project is so perfect for her room! It is so simple and cute and would be great on a shelf or dresser!

Okay, let's get started:

Supplies Needed
1 4 x 6 wood frame
mod podge
hot glue
Scrapbooking paper

Step 1: paint your frame.

Step 2: While your frame is drying, take the chipboard piece out. This is what we are going to mod podge everything to. Cut out a 4 x 6 piece of paper to fit the piece of chip board.

Step 3: Mod podge your piece of paper on the chip board.

Step 4: While your mod podge and paint is still drying, make some paper flowers. You will need a total of six for this project.

Step 5: cut out the word "grow" (or any other word you prefer) Mine is 1" tall and is from the cricut cartridge "home accents"

Step 6: Cut out a small piece of coordinating paper 2 1/2 x 6 inches and distress the edges with the color of your choice. I used a greenish color for this project.

Step 7: Mod podge the strip of paper onto your main piece of chipboard. I did mine towards the top. Mod podge the word grow in the bottom, right hand corner.

Step 8: hot glue a piece of ribbon across your piece of paper

Step 9: Hot glue three paper flowers in the middle of your papers

Step 10: Hot glue the 3 remaining flowers on the edge of your frame.

Step 11: Distress the edges of your frame. I also did this with a greenish color!

And you're done!

I hope you like it!

Loved your birdhouse/frame on Modge Podge. And I thought, wouldn't it be cute to have a long width frame with several differently decorated bird houses hanging at different heights? May have to work on that!

I pinned this to my Pinterest giving the link back to you. I have this funny board thing my son attached to the deck rail, and it's crying out for some "really important message" to be painted on it. I really love GROW for the message, as my container garden surrounds the area! Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs ~ Mary
