Picture Frame Wreath

My front door was severely lacking in Fall spirit - my favorite season. Something had to be done. My mom gave me an 8x10 frame - no glass, no back, just a frame that needed some gluing to repair the corners. I'm pretty sure she was going to pitch it. But I gladly took it off her hands, gave a little TLC, and it was ready for its transformation into a wreath.

First I cut and wrapped batting around it. Nothing neat and tidy, because it wasn't going to be visible - the batting was just to give the frame wreath a little bulk.

Given my new found love of jute, I started wrapping it around - not too tight because I wanted to keep the bulkiness. The wreath base looked good - very natural, which was the look I was going for.

But it needed a little pop. Naturally, I went to Pinterest to look for ideas and tutorials. I found amazing pictures and some excellent tutorials on how to create flowers on Miles of Sunshine and on Holidash. Ahh Pinterest. It's my new Google. So I picked up some felt pieces at Michael's. Yes, it's a bit tedious, cutting out all those little pieces and gluing each one individually. It's a good "while you're watching tv" project. But I think the final product was well worth it!

The best part is that I attached these flowers with a safety pin, which means I can use this wreath for just about any holiday or season, just by switching out the embellishments. I'm starting to think Christmas...ornaments? Small wrapped presents? Snow flakes? Lots of fun Christmas/Winter ideas to think about!
