I started with a cheap clearance framed mirror I have had for years in that box of "Someday projects" and added color Driftwood Dixie Belle Paints, which go on like a dream!
It was so lovely outside I did my painting on the patio watching the beautiful hummingbirds flit around.
Then I ran to the dollar store for Spring flower bunches, I also picked up some ribbons while I was there. I proceeded to dismantle the flowers into smaller pieces and (hot) glued them onto the painted frame in a pleasing arrangement.
I cut the ribbons into approximately 4 to 5 inch pieces and tied them in a knot which I then glued among the flower petals for textural interest.
I then created some graphics that I thought might work for the piece.
and finally used this one...
'MOM upside down is WOW'
Ribbons in various colors were added to the hanger which I may play with a bit more.
Put it all together and Here it is!
We hope you are inspired to create a lovely handmade gift for MOM.
Thanks for visiting, Jean
