Let's Do This!


Step 1: 

  • A) Paint frame with crimson paint, making sure to get all the edges. Apply additional coats as needed. Let dry.
  • B) Use the sandpaper to slightly rough up the crimson paint and reveal the wood underneath for a weathered look.


Step 2: 

  • Paint gold metallic leaves and dots coming from the top right corner. Let dry.

Step 3: 

  • Using the hot glue gun, wrap the jute around the bottom of the frame. Hot Glue on the back to secure. Repeat on the top of the frame.

Step 4: 

  • A) Using the scrap from the downloaded image, cut out a circle approximately an inch in diameter.
  • B) Add hot glue to the center.
  • C) Begin to wrap and swirl the jute in a circle starting from the center.

Step 5: 

  • A) Using the kinks in the jute as a guide, cut about eight strands of jute.
  • B) Loop the twine to make a petal and hot glue to secure on the back of the circle.
  • C) Continue until the flower is full. You can add a second, smaller layer behind the first.
  • D) Repeat the process on a smaller scale for a second jute flower.

Step 6: 

  • A) Cut two more little pieces of jute and hot glue to the top right of the frame.
  • B) Hot glue the two flowers on, with the larger closer to the right edge.
  • C) Insert the downloadable art and set on display!
