Picture Frame Wreath

This might be one of my favorite crafts so far! I really like how it turned out and I think it’s so fun!  I had seen this from Tater Tots & Jello awhile back and thought it was great and then I searched Pinterest for “picture frame wreaths” and saw some other fun stuff! (PS- let me know if you want to be invited to Pinterest!). So here’s what I came up with.
I started off with 2 black plastic frames and painted them turquoise
misc. may 005
Cut out a bunch of triangles on my Cricut (I glued 2 layers together to make them a little sturdier and then punched holes in the top of them all)
misc. may 011
Then using my scrap fabric, made a bunch of fabric rosettes
misc. may 012
I figured since hot glue would melt being out in the heat, I better not attach the flowers that way.  Instead, I tied them on.  I just kind of sewed through the flower using embroidery thread and then tied it around the back
misc. may 015
I picked up two B’s from Jo-Anns and painted them bright orange.  I also tied those on!
I made the bunting out of my little triangles and some rope and tied it on.  Added a little yellow ribbon and hung it up!
Here’s the other door’s wreath.  I used a smaller B for it.
I know it’s kinda hard to see them through the glass, but you get the idea!
Easy, cheap and super summery! Love it!

I like this idea for the hospital and new babies. It would be pretty easy to personalize with the name. Or if the name was too long or you didn't know how to spell it correctly, "Boy" or "Girl" would do too. Neat wreath.
