I am sure you have heard the term “DIY” as an acronym for (Do It Yourself). Today I want to introduce you to the term “DDIY,” (DON’T Do It Yourself). My favorite kind of craft! There are so many adorable DDIY’s on the market now, items that are already done- but require a little assembly, and then you get to take the credit for a beautiful hand-made look! This adorable Feltie flower DIY frame decor piece (or should I say DDIY ) is super easy to make and will look great in your home.
Feltie Flower DIY Frame Decor Supplies:
- Darice 8 x 10 Inch Black Wood Frame
- Darice Felties Yo-Yo Flowers (2 Packages)
- EK Tools Large Flag Shape Punch
- Core’dinations Sand It Gadget
- Cardstock- Green Crosshatch Paper
- Cardstock- Black Dot Paper
- DecoArt Americana Walnut Gel Stain
- Darice Glue Gun
The first thing I did for this DDIY frame decor piece was alter my black 8 x 10 frame a little. I wanted it to be a little more rustic to fit in with my home decor. This was super simple to do! Just sand the edges using a sand-it gadget. I love this little tool! It makes quick work out of small sanding projects, and spares my fingernails since the replaceable sandpaper is mounted onto a foam block.
Allow the frame to dry. In the meantime, cut the polka dot paper to fit inside the frame. Remove and discard the glass.
Let’s marvel a little at the detail, shall we? There is real stitching and faux stitching on fun bright-colored felt, and a fabulous 3D look from the gathered yo-yo flowers. These would take me forever to make myself!
Put a small amount of hot glue on the back center of the flowers.
Adhere the flowers to the tops of the flags.
