Job 1; peeling off the brown tape, unscrewing the hanging eye and prising off the back panel.
All surprisingly easy, I think age has helped make all the glue holding things together a lot less sticky.
Hold a minutes silence for the poor butterfly who partially disintegrated during the fabric removal. Ick!
Clean the glass with some good ole Wilko's own window cleaner and a recycled holey towel.
Use the back wooden panel to cut out a new background. I used this lovely embossed card from my craft stash.
The petals and tiny diamonds were scattered at table decorations for the wedding breakfast. These are loose inside the frame.
On the background I artfully attached a favour bag, tucking my place card inside it. The other side is OH's hankie as he was an Usher. The two tags are from DD and Baby D's table presents, and the label from his table present is in the middle.
Give it a shake to artfully spread all the loose pieces in the frame or give it to your toddler for a few minutes so she can "help".
I am so pleased with how this little project turned out! I was a perfect sunny afternoon activity and I really enjoyed the endless arranging it took to get it "just right". I am hoping to find some more frames soon and make one for each of the girls births and my own wedding. But the possibilities are endless really, how sweet would a Christmas theme one be, or Halloween?
