Twine Wrapped Frame with Burlap Flower

Posted by on Feb 25, 2013 in burlap, burlap flowers, crafts | 10 comments

I had a little time at the computer this weekend and stumbled upon the cutest idea for an empty frame.

I love all of the inspiration that can be had in blog world.

Laurel over at Chipping with Charm (who has a precious blog) inspired me!

She created a beautiful twine wrapped frame.

You should check hers out!

I have been looking for some great “empty frame” projects.

I have more than my fair share of them, and my collection continues to grow.

Here is my version.

I added this burlap flower clothespin to hold the picture.

This one was on my earliest projects.

You can see how to make it here.

A black and white picture would be great in this kind of frame.

I just couldn’t resist this one of my Anna Belle.

I just want to pinch those little cheeks!

(She is now 11. . . where does the time go?!)

  1. Gotta be lovin’ that frame and your “little girls” picture, what a cutie pie. Yes I do want to pinch those adorable little cheeks, gently of course. It’s hard sometimes to look at pics of them so little then to realize how grown up they’re getting. Makes me wish I could do it all over again. Keep them little for longer. Even all our grandkids are growing up. The youngest of 6 will be 13 in April.
    Don’t know where you find all the great frames. I’ve been to Goodwill 3 times in last couple weeks but no frames, hardly any at our local thrift store either. Everybody else must be getting to them first.
    We were at Goodwill today and I almost scored a great silver plated bowl. Another lady kept blocking me from being able to look at one I wanted, she grabbed it and walked off. Later I was looking at some ironstone and she was there again, bragged about her 300 pc. collection. I kept hoping she’d put the silver plate dish down but no luck. She knew I wanted that piece, darn her anyway. Next time I’m going to grab things to put in cart then decide if I want them. She wasn’t even interested until she heard me tell hubs about the silver plate mark on back. Old biddy. Shame on me. It’s wild competition at our Goodwill. Did get one small piece and a metal round tray that I’ll put chalk board paint on, hang up. See what you bloggers have done to me? lol. Hubs keeps asking me why I want all this “stuff”, asked me if we didn’t have enuf “stuff” in the shed, and everywhere else I can stash things. Poor guy, married to a crafter. Happy Days
    Got some really good news yesterday. Daughter called to tell us our grandson that had had cancer at just 14-18 was cancer free. What a wonderful relief. He’s in college now and working, super great kid. He was 19 in Nov.
