SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Adhesive mirror utility fabric, yardage varies with number of frames
  • Gold frames
  • Foam core, quantity varies with number of frames
  • X-Acto® knife & blades
  • Hot glue gun/glue gun sticks
  • Staple gun & mid-sized staples
  • Assorted artificial flowers & greenery (about 6-8 per frame)
  • Metal ruler
  • Cutting surface
  • Wire cutters
  • Floral wire
  • White Bistro chalk marker
  • Pencil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Remove the glass and backing from the frames and set aside.
  2. Using the backing board, trace around it on the foam core board.
  3. Cut out the drawn frame on the foam core using the X-Acto knife.
  4. Take the adhesive mirror vinyl and remove the backing paper. Apply the vinyl to the foam board and press firm from the middle to the outside edge to remove any bubbles.
  5. Write sign copy onto paper. Cut to frame sizes first to confirm placement.
  6. Trace lettering onto glass using chalk marker.
  7. Take the floral and greenery and cut them into pieces about 10" in length. Start at the corners of the frame and wrap the greenery onto the side of the frame.
  8. Using the stapler, tack them in place. Layer the flowers on top of the greenery and staple in place. Cut some of the floral and greenery into smaller pieces and staple to the frame in and around the bigger pieces to hide staples and give more dimension to the grouping of flowers.
  9. Reassemble frames, placing the mirror foam core pieces behind the lettered glass.
