Fabric Art & Giveaway Winner!

Happy Sunday Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! Last weekend I was able to work on a project that I've been putting off for weeks -- a piece of decor for our guest room.

Here's what I gathered for the project:
1. Large thrifted frame - $4.99
2. One yard of home decor fabric from Hobby Lobby - $7 (on sale!)
3. One yard of cotton fabric for rosettes - $3 (also on sale!)
4. Spray paint - $3.99
5. Wood stain from Handy Andy's collection
6. Scissors, hot glue gun

I started by removing the glass from the frame (oh yeah, I broke the glass during this step. Awesome). Then I lightly sanded the frame and wiped it down with a damp cloth. I sprayed it with two coats of the spray paint and let it dry. Once that was dry I lightly sanded the edges and then brushed a medium wood stain over the frame with a paper towel.

I set that aside to dry and went to work on the fabric.

I laid the fabric out and then cut a piece that was large enough to go around the frame back with a little room to fold it over. Using my hot glue gun, I folded the edges over and glued them down.

Then, to add a little decoration to the frame, I made a few fabric rosettes and added them to the corner of the frame with hot glue. Here it is all together:

It ended up being fine that I broke the glass, because I didn't need it anyway. At first I was planning to hang it up as is, but now I think I'll use it as a picture board. What do you think?

And now, for the moment you've been waiting for -- the winner of my giveaway! The winner is...
