How many of you see something you love while you’re out shopping and get home and decide you have to try and make it yourself?

This happens to me a lot and I hope I’m not the only one.

So, I was recently at Pier 1 looking at their candles (because I love their candles) and came across this sweet felt rose picture frame.  I didn’t really put much thought into the frame because I was too focused on candles but when I got home I started thinking more about how cute it was.  Then it dawned on me, “I think I can make it myself!”

I headed to Michael’s to get a cheap wood frame and some sheets of felt.  My total was less than $5.  The only other materials I needed were scissors and my handy dandy glue gun.
I started by figuring out how to make the felt roses.

I cut the felt into 1 inch strips.

Then I cut each strip into 4 equal pieces.
Then I folded each piece in half and used my scissors to round the edges.
I did this a lot!!
This is where you find a good movie to watch.  Just keep cutting.

Once all your pieces are cut, it’s time to plug in the glue gun.  I took each piece and glued the ends together.

Then I glued two pieces together to form the rose.

Once I had a nice pile of roses, I started gluing them in rows to the frame.

I just kept adding rows of roses until the entire frame was covered.

I have to admit that this project turned out pretty darn cute for about a fifth of the price!  It is a little time consuming but definitely worth it.  I kind of wish I would have used pink felt so I could have given to my precious niece.  I guess I’ll be going to back to Michael’s soon to make another one:)

So what do you think?

What have you seen recently at a store that you just had to make yourself?
