I love Pier 1 and I often buy things from them. In this case, I didn't see paying for something that I could easily make. I made something cute for my daughter, used some of my endless supply of crafting materials, and Zoe was able to completely "work it" for treats...Win, Win, Win!
|Make the roses using a 1 1/2-inch & 2-inch circle, folding both.|
|After making a bud with the smaller circle, wrap with with larger circle.|
|After tacking the roses together with glue, apply glue to bottoms and attach them to the frame.|
|Almost finished...Fill in any spaces with extra buds.|
|All filled in ~ Just add your photo.|
Rosy Felt Frame
For this project you will need:
6 sheets of felt, I used deep pink
glue gun & sticks
1 frame for a 4x6 photo, with a 2-inch wide trim*
*The inspiration frame at Pier 1 was black. I chose to spray paint my frame gold.
Use a 1 1/2 inch circle to trace and cut 70 circles. Use a 2-inch circle to trace and cut 60 circles. Make roses by folding smaller circles in half and rolling, rounded edge up, into a rose bud. This will create the centers for your roses. Fold larger circles in half, wrap around "center" buds to create the roses. You will have 10 buds remaining. After completing the folds, repeat process using a glue gun to tack the pieces together. Allow glue to bond for about 20 minutes before attaching the roses to the frame. When ready, apply glue to the bottom of a rose and start by attaching at a corner of the frame. Repeat the process, tightly filling the frame with roses. Use remaining rose buds to fill in any spaces.
