Here are the things you will need...screen or lace (I used pink lace I found in my fabric supply), a picture frame, scissors, earrings, glue gun, and sustenance aka cereal to eat while the glue gun heats up.
Using a sharpie I marked out exactly the size I needed the lace to be to glue it in place
Then glued one side in at a time...
I think it looks pretty good...but it won't stand up by itself :-(
Soooo find a sturdy piece of cardboard-in this case I used the piece I'd taken out of the back of the frame itself-and squeeze out hot glue onto it in a nice line...
Press that sucker onto it nice and firm...
And there you are with the finished product.
In retrospect I think a sturdier fabric (think cross stitch fabric stuff, or screen, or lace that isn't stretch) would have been a better option. I may start carrying these in my new etsy shop.
What do you think? Is this something you would be interested in making?
