Decorate My Home, Part 19 – 3-D Framed Flowers


I had to finish up that 2nd bathroom. 
(Which I worked on here and here.)

There was some vertical wall space that was shouting for me to fill up.
So I did.
With some little 3-D framed flowers
That Pop.
 Now I have my own mini flower garden up on the wall.
 (And I like how they sit next to that sweet ruffled curtain.)
All 3 are different……
……..but kinda fun in their own way.
Now I just need to draw some water, grab a book, and soak in the tub.
Ready to make some yourself?
(I used 100% cotton for all fabric used below.)
Find some old frames…..any size will do.  (Mine are from the thrift store.  Maybe $0.50 each.)  Take the backs and the glass off……
Then spray paint them the color you’d like and allow them to dry.
Then grab the matte of the frame (and the filler cardboard piece if there is one) and cut some coordinating fabric that is slightly bigger than the matte.
Fold the fabric over all four sides and hot glue into place.
Then place the fabric covered piece back into the frame and put the back onto the frame.
Repeat with all of your frames.
…..Now to make the flowers…..

This twisted little flower was made 
just like the flower shown here.

This multi-petal flower was made 
following the directions below.
First I cut out 12 petal shapes that were big enough to cover a good amount of my frame opening, after being arranged.
Then I folded them in half lengthwise, and added a dab of hot glue at the base.
 Then I began arranging them around the center point of the frame…..

…….until I completed a full circle.
Then I cut a little strip of fabric, folded it in half lengthwise, and rolled it up.
Then I glued that right to the center of the flower.

This swirly flower was made 
following the directions below.
First, I cut out a strip of fabric that was 1.5 x 40 inches.
Then I folded it in half lengthwise and pressed it flat with my fingers.  (You may want to iron it slightly….but not too much or it may change the look of the flower.)
Then I rolled that strip up like a cinnamon roll (yum!) with the folded edge facing up.
Now, allow the rolled up fabric to loosen up.  (You may need to help it and guide it to loosen up evenly.)
Decide how it looks best, then place little dabs of hot glue underneath the spiraling fabric to help keep it in place.
Next, cut out two petal shapes.
Then fold them in half lengthwise and place a dab of hot glue at the base, to keep them in place.
Then decide which side looks best as the bottom of your flower, and hot glue the petals there.
And that’s it.
Hang your new framed flowers in any room of the house.
And enjoy that 3-dimensional pop.
And your very own flower garden.
