Isn’t this the sweetest? A little faux floral daisy frame for your favourite piece of art. Or for a free printable like I used here. Nothing to it!
This was part of my #12MonthsofDIY monthly blogger challenge with 11 of my talented blogger friends. I was inspired by a few mini daisy bushes I received from Afloral.com. They’re an online supplier of gorgeous faux flowers and other goodies, who deliver right to your door. These daisy bushes were pretty inexpensive – just the thing I needed to give new life to an old print I wasn’t using.
Here’s what I started with:
This is a print I received a while back that just didn’t find a place in my home. I’m trying to declutter and simplify things around here and so I decide to repurpose it. I knew if I sweetened it up a little, it would find the perfect home on the little art wall in my daughter’s new dorm room. It’s an easy, low-budget transformation that you can use, too. I’m sure you have something lying around that would benefit from a layer of daisies ;).
I gave the frame a coat of white spray paint, so the black wouldn’t show through. And then I cut the green backings from the daisies and used a glue gun to attach them to the frame. Done and done!
Here’s a little DIY art secret. This Chanel print was a free printable I downloaded online. I had it printed as a photo enlargement at Costco for about $2. I could have probably printed it myself on art paper in my printer, but I liked the glossy finish. You can often find printables online. My favourite source is chicfetti.com, with a huge library of printables that are free as long as you give them some social media love in return. It’s a great deal!
Don’t forget, you can join in with a project of your own. We want to see your #fauxfloral DIY projects for this #12MonthsofDIY challenge! Our favourite DIY will be featured on all 12 of our Instagram accounts on September 30th.
Now it’s time to see the rest of the DIY faux floral project ideas from my Canadian blogging friends!
