DescriptionEdit

Frame

Brought to you by Megan Nicolay, this is the coolest and easiest way to make a Hawaii-themed photo frame without spending a boatload on an expensive frame! Plus, it's a great way to get rid of old colorful T-shirts you no longer need.

Easy

Supplies NeededEdit

  • T-shirt scraps (in various colors)
  • Circular object (about 2.5" in diameter to use as a cutting template)
  • Aleene's Fabric Fusion fabric glue
  • Fabric scissors
  • Blank picture frame
  • Aleene's Tacky Line Runner (double-sided adhesive dispenser)
  • Printed vacation photos to fit in the blank picture frame

DirectionsEdit

  • Cut a series of circles from the T-shirt scraps. (I cut about 55 circles in order to cover a 4" x 6" frame.) Cut them all the same color or mix it up to add vibrant highlights to the frame -- I was inspired by the colors of the corals (yellow, salmon, and raspberry hued) that we snorkeled near in Vieques, Puerto Rico.
  • Select one circle, fold it in half, then fold it in half again. Cut a scalloped edge into the open (arced) edge so the piece of folded fabric becomes heart-shaped.
  • Unfold the piece of fabric (it should slightly resemble a four-leaf clover) and squeeze a small amount of fabric glue into the center. Fold it in half, with the edges slightly askew (so the petals don't line up exactly) and pinch.
  • Then apply a small dab of glue along the folded edge and fold it in half again to create a blossom.
  • Pinch the end and separate the petals and let dry. Repeat steps 2-4 for the remaining circles then set the blossoms aside.
  • Apply the double-stick adhesive liberally to the front of the frame. Be careful not to press your fingers into it since the oils will deplete the sticky qualities!
  • One by one, press the blossoms into the adhesive on the frame, angling and overlapping them to cover the frame and create a pleasing pattern.
  • Layer the flowers over the entire frame, and don't hesitate to cut more if you find gaps in the coverage.
