I want to start this post out with this link, http://www.tipjunkie.com/before-and-after-ikea/ , I like this site and if you like to be creative on a budget you will too!
For a do it yourself Frame (like the one in white) check out that link!
Ok, so... I saw these cute frames at a craft store in Oklahoma while shopping with my awesome Auntie Shelly, I loved them!!! So Of course, I made my own!
What You Need:
-Go to your local T.J.Max or any store that has your favorite frames. I like the $5 ones at Hobby Lobby...
-While at Hobby Lobby pick up some fun ribbon.. I like the thicker ribbon. Similar to those in the pic.
- You will need a broach. The bigger the better! I have found cheap ones at Forever 21 or T.J.Max
So the Bow part is simple. You don't have to tie it like a normal bow, because you don't need the loop to tie it in the middle.
I Make the two loops (that make the bow part) and leave 3 inches of ribbon on each side. ( a little extra so when you trim the ends you have extra in case of mistakes)
I secure the bow by pinching the bow in the middle and tying it with the floral wire. Then, I hot glue it to the frame. Lots of glue, and I even glue the ends of the ribbon to the frame. (if needed)
Last, you can pin the broach to the center OR glue with hot glue.
And there you have a cute new frame. Great for gifts!
How to Use at Your Event:
Use the frames to hold a menu of the food items being served. OR if it's a shower you are hosting, frame the invite, display where you like, and give it as a gift to the guest of honor!
