Framed Felt Flowers

Hello!

This week, Northern Colorado has been blessed with spring-like temps. We’re talking mid 50’s and 60’s, with a possibility for 70 (gasp!) on Friday.  Its been lovely, and absolutely gets me in the mood for green grass and flowers.  🙂

I love the combination of felt and sequins. Especially on vintage Christmas stockings – nothing like it. Its such a charming combination of simplicity and glitz. And, felt is SO EASY to work with…..what’s not to love about that???

So, in this spring-like frame of mind, I decided to craft a little bouquet for Valentine’s Day.  A simple swirl of felt creates a sweet little flower. And, some platinum sequins and seed beads really dress it up!

I used vintage pipe cleaners (that once upon a time, really cleaned pipes – ha!) for the stems and a vintage paper/foil leaf as an extra embellishment.  Vintage sheet music makes a great, neutral background matte, framed in an old, simple wooden frame.

This little bouquet is now on my desk and is a great reminder for Spring days to come!

Have a great rest of the week and weekend!

Happy Creating!
