3-D Wall Decor

Originally I was going to use this as a decoration for my bedroom, except with a more sophisticated feel.

But as I began putting it all together it felt more of a bright, fun & cheerful project, which is the vibe of my daughter’s room so I decided to make it for her.

That’s one of the many reasons I love to craft – anything goes! You may start with a great idea in your head, and halfway through the project, it can take on a whole new direction.

So anyway, beginning with a regular frame I had in my craft stash, I removed the inner glass panel and painted the frame white with acrylic paint. Topping it off with a shiny clear glaze.

Next up, the flower. This is a large silk flower that I picked up from Michael’s for about two dollars. It was attached to a long stem so I just cut off the stem and snipped off the greenery so all was left was the flower head.

I inserted this nice lime green scrapbook paper behind the frame. It’s got a good weight and a slight glossed finish; so I knew it would fit this project perfectly.

To add the finishing touch, I had this cute ribbon on hand also and glued that down on top of the green paper.

Next, just eyeballing it, I glued the flower to the center of the paper using a hot glue gun.

Some of the petals were popping up a bit too much so I simply glued them down too.

I left the glass panel off because the flower was too thick for it to fit back on.
