Hang Tight!

Happy Friday Lovelies!
This week was all about sprucing up these frames:

From blah, they can turn into...

TADA! -- A hanging vase made from an
old maple syrup bottle, twisty-ties,
magazine cut-outs, cardboard &
our versatile frame!

Here's a quick tutorial:

Step 1: Cut a piece of cardboard that will fit the frame.
Cover it up with scrap paper.

Step 2: Approximate where you want to
attach the bottle to the cardboard.
Poke some holes with a small screwdriver.
Insert the twisty-ties (or wire) around
the bottle & wind them tight.
Secure with packing tape.

Step 3: Attach the cardboard to
the frame, add some foliage
to your new vase and hang
this on a blank wall.

Have a fabulous weekend!
