Baby Wall Hanging
I started my project with an unfinished frame that I picked up at my local craft store for $1. I painted it with some Wicker White acrylic paint and then sprayed it with some Honey Dew Mist Glimmer Mist. After I sprayed on the glimmer mist I rubbed it with a paper towel like you would stain. I did this twice. It doesn’t show up well in the photo but it gave the frame a pretty light pale green color and the gold glimmer shows up in the light and makes the frame just shimmer.
For the picture I put inside the frame I used a Reddy Card image from Baby and Birth Ecstasy Craft . These are so simple to use and look wonderful when you get done. All of the images punch out and are numbered in the order you layer them. For my image I layered the images using the Joy Foam Pads between the layers to give that 3d effect.
I covered the chip board backing for the frame with some two toned green striped paper and mounted my picture to the chipboard piece with my ATG gun. I used a cut from the Cricut Imagine Nursery Tails cartridge. For the flowers, I used some Flower Soft Wires that I covered with the Flower Soft Adhesive and then I sprinkled the adhesive covered wires with the Sweet Pea Flower Soft turning the wires as I sprinkled the Flower Soft over them to ensure that all sides were coating. I used a 2” square of pink tissue paper to create a cone shape to put the flowers in, tied a narrow sheer white ribbon around the cone and glued it to the frame with the Flower Soft Adhesive. The Ecstasy Craft items are a great way to make a quick project that looks fantastic. I hope you give them a try.
