Materials:

  • Large plain frame
  • Foam core
  • X-acto knife
  • Cotton string or twine
  • Faux florals (various kinds)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Metal straight edge

Instructions:

1. Use your x-acto knife and metal straight edge to cut a rectangle, smaller than your frame, out of foam core. Cut a smaller rectangle out of that rectangle so that you have a frame that is at least 2” wide.


2. Remove all of the backing and glass from the frame so that it is completely empty. Set the frames face down on your work surface with the foam core frame centered in the middle of the larger frame.


3. Next, mark where you are going to tie your strings off to. To do so, lay your straightedge across the diagonal of your larger frame, across the corners of your smaller frame as well. Mark these lines with pencil.


4. Spin the ruler from the center, stopping every few inches to mark your lines all the way around on both of the frames.


5. Take your string and tie off the corners of the smaller frame to the larger frame and secure in place with hot glue.


6. Continue tying pieces of string at each pencil mark you’ve made to connect the frames. Secure each piece with hot glue.


7. Once your foam core frame is suspended in the larger frame flip it over.


8. Arrange your florals as desired. *the less you cover with foliage the more modern and abstract the piece looks.*


9. Secure the foliage arrangement with hot glue.


10. Hang as desired and enjoy!
