After I finished my hardware store anchor, I had tons of rope left. I love leftover materials! I also had a plain frame on hand that came in my swag bag from the SNAP conference I attended. I realized it would be really easy to put them together to make an adorable frame.
All I needed was my frame, rope, a pretty flower from Hobby Lobby, and my trusty glue gun. Michael’s sells frames similar to the one I used, or you could use this method to spruce up a inexpensive garage sale find.
The process of applying the rope was quick. I cut the rope as I went, no measuring needed!
After I finished covering the frame in rope, I cut the stem off the flower and applied it with hot glue. If you don’t want to buy a flower, check out this easy paper flower tutorial, or this easy ribbon rosette tutorial.
Crazy easy, right?
It looks great on our new bookshelves in the office!
Creating projects from things I find around the house always makes me smile. Total out of pocket cost for this project was around $1 for the flower. I think a frame like this would make a great gift!
