Hi! I’m Jelli and I’m excited to be here sharing with you and Lisa on Sew Gloried! I blog at Jellibean Journals sharing sweet treats, family life, faith walking, and fashion attempts. Thanks, so much Lisa, for letting me share this cheerful 10 minute buttons & bows frame with you!
Buttons and bows make everything pretty.
(adding a baby doesn’t hurt either!)
I recently purchased a quaint, pink wooden frame with intentions of boosting the color and charm factor straight from the craft box. A few buttons and bows later and voila! A merry and delightful little frame to showcase my two favorite cuties.
To glam-up a basic frame, all you have to do is craft a few pretty felt bows and and glue on an array of colorful accent buttons. This cheery little project cost me a mere ¢1,600 ($3) and adds a burst of happy color to the house.
- Basic frame (I love the sturdy ruggedness of wood)
- Felt bows (see tutorial)
- Colorful buttons
- Craft glue
- 10 minutes (That’s 3 commercial breaks, folks.)
Arrange items on the frame to your liking. Glue those puppies in place. Finito!
What’s your favorite way to decorate a basic frame?
