Rose Garden Frame — LeNae Gerig
 
Jane and Paul, from Jacie's Collage

Supplies:

  • silver “I Love to Garden” charm
  • 4 3/4”x3 3/4” wood frame
  • three 3/4” wide lavender porcelain roses
  • four 1” long green latex leaves
  • 22” of 1/4” wide lavender satin ribbon
  • liquid all-purpose sealer
  • low temperature glue gun, glue sticks

Designer Tips: This project can be made in under 10 minutes! That’s right—this cute frame is a great way gift or party favor. LeNae suggests, “This is ideal for wedding or baby showers. You could put the person’s name inside the frame and use it as a place-setting; each guest could then take it home as a favor. Use different charms to reflect the personality of the guest.”

All the materials are widely available; check your local Michaels for supplies. The frames will be in the frame section (LeNae says they sell for a few dollars each). The porcelain roses and the ribbon LeNae used are both found in the wedding section of the store. The charms are found in the paper crafting department.

Instructions

  1. Apply sealer to the upper left corner of the frame; let dry. The ribbon and roses won’t stick properly to the varnished surface otherwise.
  2. Make a loopy bow with eight 1 1/4” loops and two 1 1/2” tails. Glue the bow to the frame as shown. Glue the roses to the bow center then glue the charm extending below the roses.
