Bows, bows, bows!

You know when you have an idea in your head and you decide to make it...and it doesn't quite turn out the way you thought?! That happened to me with something I made for Adalyn's bows and flowers!

I wanted someway to display them, to get them out of the jar I had them in! I also wanted to make it look like art! 

I had this frame hanging in our room and thought I could use it to hold her bows! This was just an empty frame..I cheated and painted a piece of bristol board with chalkboard  paint and stapled it on. 
I ripped out the Bristol board and attached ribbon to the frame with staples.
Some of the staples came through so I gave it a new coat of paint, which it needed anyway!
Then I attached the bows and it is...
It just isn't what I had in mind...

I think the frame is too big, or there aren't enough flowers. I'm not too sure. Also I think it needs a back so the ribbon doesn't needs to be tight against the back! 

I have a big canvas sitting here so I might try that...wrapping the ribbon around the back and stapling it would be flat against the back, and also smaller! What do you think?

I should try and put it in her room as well...that might make a difference. I might fall in love with it...who knows!

Until next time..
