Would you believe it if I told you that the flowers on the frame below were made with toilet paper rolls? Well you better believe it! Ally and I had been saving up some toilet paper rolls so we could make this. I guess I can share the tutorial with it. :)
Save up your toilet paper rolls. Clean them off really good.
Find a frame that you like and spray paint it. I didn't do the best job spray painting it because I wanted to distress mine. If you don't want to distress yours, make sure you do it good. I got this frame at D.I. for a dollar. I love it because it has such character and I love all the lines!!
Cut the toilet paper rolls into even parts. (All you have to do is kind of flatten the roll and cut vertically.) Pick out some cute acrylic paints and paint the inside and outside of the parts you cut. (yep, my husband surprised this picture on me.)
My best friend Ally did the craft with me :)
After the paint dries a little, bend each one together to make them more of a pointy/oval/flower petal shape.
I used a glue gun to make a flower. You can do whatever design you want though.
Glue on the flowers to the frame. You can add ribbons, buttons, any embelishments you want. (Oh, you can distress the frame like I did as well.)
Then, add a picture! That's a picture of me and my two best friends at my wedding.
I LURVE how it turned out. I want to make more! I want to experiment with sizes and designs. It was fun. Thanks Ally for the idea!
