Twig Picture Frames
This was one of the things we made and gave away as christmas presents. December can be a quiet month of blogging for me and this is one of the reasons why, I don't want to blog about the gifts we've created until I give them away.
So I went in Amy and Tom's backyard and collected twigs. They have lots of them. Lots of twigs.
Then I loosely bundled them and wrapped floral wire around them until it became fastened.
It's hard to see with the table cloth underneath the frames but here are two, assembled.
I bought two different ribbons to wrap around the frames.
Then I just wrapped a length of ribbon around the floral wire and hot glue it down. You could get pretty creative with the ribbon.
The almost final look. I took wide shimmer ribbon and placed it across the frame completely, for the backing to hold a photo. I just now realized I didn't take a photo of that though.
It was so easy. I made 8 or 9 in no time at all. Next time I'm at my mom's, I'll take a photo of hers, she's already got it hanging up.
