Faux Wood Monogram Frame

 I had some odds and ends lying around that I thought I would put to good use. I really like the wood- infused items I'm seeing I thought I'd try my hand at it. I started with an old picture frame, minus the glass.

Trace paper mache letter on the back of the paper.
Cut it out....
and apply spray adhesive (I'm sure the Craft Wars judges would see me off rather quickly.).
I added some more paper (just trace the sides and cut it out) to give it some more dimension.

I placed it in the middle to eyeball where I wanted it.

And commenced wrapping my letter first...then the frame with the wire.

I had some left over burlap from a past project. I knotted one end and started twisting and twirling it around itself.

I cut out a felt circle to give it some additional support and to keep it all together.

I added that with spray adhesive, too. {GASP!}

I took the remaining wire and twisted it around the top and side of the frame, ending at the flower. I attatched  the flower to the frame with it.
I'm totally digging it!  Wasn't sure if I would come together- but it did!
