The first step is to lay all four of the wood slats down and glue four popsicle sticks to the back to make your surface. If you choose, you can use a ready made surface to save you time.
Your surface should look like the one below once you have done the previous step.
Next, I used the color black currant to paint my surface. I used a chip brush for this as I didn’t want 100% coverage.
As that dried, I took my ribbon and stacked each design together and cut them in the shape of flower petals. I ended up not using the color on the bottom right. All three of the ribbons I used came from Hobby Lobby.
I then arranged my flower petals somewhat in the shape of a flower. For the center of the flower I used rope twine and simply wrapped it around in circles until all of the inside edges of my flower petals(ribbon) were covered.
Now we have a our cute little flower. I wanted to put something in the center to hide my hot glue from where I started my jute rope so I painted a half wood bead with the same black currant color and glued that in the center. You can find the half wood beads like I used right HERE using my affiliate link.
I just love how this turned out! The perfect piece of decor for Spring and even Summer if you please!
For this project I simply gathered a few ribbons that matched the color pallet I am using for Fall this year along with some raffia. Use whatever you have laying around and I can guarantee it will turn out just as cute!
The first thing I did was use painter’s tape to tape off my frame. I then used my “pink sky” waverly chalk paint and painted the inside of the frame. I did two coats.
Next, I layered my mustard colored ribbon on top of some burlap to create the “F”. Both of these ribbons came from Hobby Lobby.
For the “A”, I used this cute button ribbon trim that is also from Hobby Lobby.
For the first “L” I did the same thing that I did for the “F” layering a navy ribbon on top of the burlap. For the second “L” I used raffia. I love the look of this!
As if this isn’t already cute just the way it is…but you know me! Bow time!
I used this cute pick that I found at Hobby Lobby along with a cute lace bow that I tied up and added it to the top of the frame. To finish it off I added a little navy button. What do you think?
The next bow that I use quite often is my crisscross bow! This bow is super quick and easy! I promise, even if you think your not a very good bow maker, you will be able to do this one! This is my go to bow for smaller projects. You can also adjust the size of this bow simply by adjusting the lengths of your ribbons or by adding additional pieces of ribbon to the base of the bow.
