Mod Podge Frame

WELCOME friends!! Please click here to view this project, where it is posted with more details, at my craft blog Craftily Ever After!




My favorite pattern ever is damask so when I saw some gorgeous damask wrapping paper in black and white I snapped it up thinking I would use it to spruce up the fronts of the drawers on our ugly old dresser when I paint it. I still plan to do that but as it will take longer than ten minutes (which is the most Annalise ever entertains herself) it has not happened yet. Annalise's little friend turned one the other day though and I knew just the gift for her. I pulled out the wrapping paper, some black paint, mod podge, and an unfinished wood frame, as well as some much-loved old pants that I had saved for their fabric. I wore these to all the church dances back in the day. :)



The best thing was that I didn't have to buy anything- I had all of it laying around the house! This is what I came up with.




For the flower, I cut circles out of the pant leg and held the edges over a candle flame until they melted and curled upwards. Then I attached them with a pearl brad and hot-glued them to the frame.



Perfect for a sweet one-year-old girl!

Very cute. I have not had much luck with getting material to burn right, like for hair bows and what not.

Jess said...

Wow--We really think that Annalise's little friend will adore it. I know her parents do. :)

Kelsey said...

Who the heck are you?!?! That looks SOOO stinkin' cute! We need to craft together because you are amazing and well...I'm not. It totally looks like you bought it from a store and it was expensive.

Stephanie said...

I so wish I had that talent. That looks amazing! I would see that in the store and want it.

Jessica said...

Haha Jess, I should have given it to you before I posted it! I didn't know you would see it. :)

Super cute! LOVE it! I'd love for you to link this up @ Iheartnaptime

Jessica said...

Thanks, will do, @Naptime!

Robyn, maybe this will help: I didn't actually "burn" the material at all; I held it close to the flame without touching and you have to wait a few seconds before it will melt initally. Let me know if you try it again- I've done it a few times with no problems so we could chat more if you want. :)

I think I have the exact pants in a turquoise and maroon! Thanks for the idea of using them for fabric because I can't pull them off anymore :)
