DIY Framed Eucalyptus Art



Hiiii y'all!  It's been a while but I felt like I'd just jump right in with a fun and easy DIY!  The reason I DIY is either because I can't find what I'm dreaming of, or the only thing I can find is too expensive. I looked and looked for something to work in this space but finally this idea came to me! 

DIY Framed Eucalyptus

Supplies:

2 Frames from Michaels (16x20)
Gold Spray Paint 
Fabric
Eucalyptus
Scissors
Hot Glue

Directions:

1.  Take the frame apart and it paint gold.  Try to let this sit for 24 hours.  During this time you can press your eucalyptus down with a stack of books.  


2.  Use the cardboard that was already in the frame and cut your fabric slightly smaller.


3.  Put a few dots of hot glue around the edges of your cardboard to hold down the fabric (smoothing as you go).


4.  Put the mat back on the fabric and arrange the eucalyptus.  Feel free to remove leaves!  Place a small dot of glue on the stem and attach to the fabric.



5.  Put the glass on top and back into the frame!  

Before:


After!!!







This project was a welcomed distraction yesterday...  Hope you are hanging in there and finding ways to stay sane during all of this!
