Recently while shopping I found a set of beautiful framed paper flowers – I LOVED them but they were $30! I just couldn’t fathom spending that kind of money on a project I was sure I could make myself (more or less). So here it is – my take on Targets Framed Paper Flower Wall Hangings. The best part is mine only cost me $5 or less to make myself!
- Burlap DCWV scrapbook paper
- 1 page of DCWV newpaper print double sided scrapbook paper
- 8 inches of chevron burlap ribbon
- 1 scented paper flower (purchased on clearance for $0.25)
- 1-3 photo frames (I used a 3 divider 4×6 frame I already had lying around, you could also use 3 4×6 frames)
- Remove glass from frame/s. cover back piece of frame with burlap scrapbook paper.
- To make the first flower, simply cut the newspaper print scrapbook paper and cut it into four squares. Take one square and cut around into a circle spiral (seem image above). Next starting from the outside of the spiral begin to roll paper, continue all the way around until you get to the inner center piece. When you let go of the paper it will unravel just enough to create a beautiful paper flower. Hot glue flower in the center of the flower to hold together.
- For the third flower, take the burlap and ball up a small amount at the end of one side. Begin to roll burlap around the “balled” section until you have created a burlap rosette flower. Use hot glue to keep flower from unraveling.
- Finally, hot glue each flower to the burlap backed photo frame. Finish with a piece of ribbon, scrap burlap or twine to hang the frame to the wall.
