DIY Canvas Photo

I can't take full credit for this DIY because I had found it on Pinterest but I can't find the original person who had posted how to do this.

I thought that these came out really really great and wanted to share step by step how I made them.  I really love this DIY because you can choose the size of your canvas. I would recommend that you start with a small canvas and then once you get this down try it with a bigger canvas.  The look of this is also a vintage look so the picture looks distressed which I really really like.
The total cost is way under $25 so that's another reason to give this DIY project a try.

Here are the two I made and kept for myself the rest I gave away as gifts to my family members!!

DIY Necklace with Rosettes!!

DIY Necklace with Rosettes!!!

So I think that Pinterest makes everyone want to be ultra creative and make everything in your home a do it yourself project.  Towards the end of my pregnancy I couldn't go back to work and so I had some time on my hands. What was I to do but look on Pinterest and get inspired. I love the DIY and crafts section.  I found someone who made little rosettes. I had seen them before and thought they were just adorable but I had never realized how easy they are to make. So this is how my pursuit to make this project began.  I made little rosettes and didn't know where to stick them.
              After thinking about it for some time I thought that it would make a great statement piece with an outfit.  I know bold necklaces are such a hit right now and I thought these could be boho but they can be very chic. So here is what I came up with....

I was able to get all my supplies at Micheals Craft store.  The supplies that you need are the following:

- felt (black color)
- Satin ribbon
- material ( I got quilting squares from joann fabric but any scrap material will do)
- embellishments ( small crystals, pearls, etc.)
- hot glue gun & glue sticks

I had filmed my adventure with making this wonderful project and I will insert that link below.

I hope that you give this a try! I think it's a great statement piece and very easy to make!!
