Family Sign





I absolutely LOVE how this turned out. I didn't take pictures as I made it but it was so simple I'm sure you could make it. I will try to tell you how I did it....
I started out with two frames similiar to the one above...Hot glued them together, I'm sure there are ones that already have six openings I was just using what I had. Then I took apart the frame and kept the glass out. Hot glued burlap to the backing. Cut out letters spelling FAMILY on my cricut using black cardstock, but if you don't have one you could just cut out letters on black cardstock. Glued the letters with my glue gun to the middle of each opening on top of the burlap. Then I took twine and glued in between each opening. I first did it to hide where I had glued the frames together but liked it so much I did it between each opening.  Made some burlap flowers kind of following this tutorial I found from The Tidy Nest. I only used the twine, my glue gun and the burlap to make them though.


So what do you think??? So many things you could spell out with these so fun!!!
