Several years ago my husband and I took a weekend getaway to the Washington coast. It was beautiful, but it rained the whole time so we didn't get a lot of beach time in. Thankfully, the hotel we were staying in was hosting a vintage sale right on their property! We decided to check it out and I was able to find two of these beautiful but beat up frames for $1.
My husband turned one of the frames into a shelf for my craft room. I absolutely love it! For now it is housing all my Tattered Angels paints. For this frame, I turned it into a banner and photo display.
First, I painted it in a color that coordinates with my craft room. Then, I turned it over to the backside and nailed in three nails on each side. I then wrapped some floral wire around the nails to create three lines to pin my banner on.
I used Canvas Corp's Fleur di Lis paper to create my banner flags. I cut them into 3x3 squares and then cut the little triangle out of the bottom to create the flag shape.
Then I laid all 9 flags out on my craft counter. I thought this would be the easiest way to visualize where my photos and embellishments would go.
I had some old chipboard letters in my stash that didn't match at all, so I took some Decor and DIY Paint from Tattered Angels and painted them. I used Chamois, which is a light yellow color and absolutely gorgeous.
I also used some 7 Gypsies lace trimmings to create some ruffles on a few of the flags. I just laid down some adhesive tape and applied the lace, ruffling it along.
Once I was satisfied with all the embellishments, I just hung up the flags using Canvas Corp's Jacobean mini clothespins.
I love the way it turned out and its a welcomed display in my craft room now! The pictures I used are from when my son was just a few days old and they are so special to me! I love having them showcased in this beautiful way.
This project was also featured on Canvas Corp's Blog, so head on over there to check it out as well if you are interested!
