Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you had a fabulous weekend! It was my 29th birthday yesterday (again..shhh) and I had a wonderful time with friends and family.
Today I’m sharing this sweet monogrammed “wreath”.
I picked up the following supplies….
I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the “square” inset of the frame first. I turned it over (opposite of what the photo shows) and marked around the straight edges (in between the loops) with a pen.
I then cut along the lines I made….
I set that to the side and painted the “lacy” frame part with black acrylic craft paint…..
Followed by gluing over that–>and black glitter sprinkled over top of the glue. (the glue will dry clear)
I then brushed glue onto the inside of the frame for the scrapbook paper.
I attached the paper carefully in the center. (pictured several photos below)
Next I painted the “C” with turquoise acrylic craft paint.
(see the pretty blue glitter at the bottom of that pack?? I was in a sparkly, glittery mood for this project!)
Next ….that fabulous blue glitter! LOOOVVVE
I applied glue over the dried turquoise paint and then sprinkled glitter over the top. (notice the frame and scrapbook paper assembled and finished)
I also applied the beads on the corners. (with the glue gun)
I had originally laid them in alternating colors completely around the outside of the burlap but it was just too “busy” for me.
I finished it up with this pretty black and white ribbon to dress up the edges. (also hot glued)
And all finished….the possibilities are just endless!
I had considered adding a bow to the top with the same ribbon…but again, I thought it was too much.
I may still…who knows! Or maybe some twine or something to hang it from. Anyway, I do love that punch of turquoise color with the black and white! :)
Happy crafting and creating!! :)
