(The little chalkboard is from Michael's for like $2 and the just ribbon is from WalMart for like $1.50).
The first step was to pop the back out of the $1 frame. I fired up my glue gun and got to work.
Basically I just started gluing it on. I did the first layer sort of sparse because I knew I could add more as I needed to.
After the frame was totally covered in moss, I put the back of the frame back in without the glass.
I originally wanted to cover the chalkboard frame in moss too to make it extra plush, but I didn't end up having enough in my $1 bag-o-moss. So, I painted the chalkboard frame black in an effort to keep it looking clean and pretty. I glued it to the inside of the frame with my glue gun. I then added a bow to hang it and whallah! Here she is :)
I hung her up in my kitchen above the gold memory board I made long ago and I think it looks cute. Although, I recently mentioned to a friend that I really don't want my home to look "glue-gunned together" and I fear this type of craft may not be helping me in that mission. What do you think?? Too crafty??? The jury is out. I think it's pretty, but I'm not sure if it's true love yet.I'll live with her for a while to see if she blends in well enough with our decor. For now, I'm in "like" with it :) Happy Sunday!
