Just FRAME it!

Well this lil' post is for a dear friend of mine. We were talking in the shop today about how to "beef up" the look of a smaller wreath she was admiring. I told her to simply "FRAME IT". It is a simple, inexpensive solution to give a wreath, a small photo or anything you wish to accent more presence. Plus it just makes it a lil' more special, wouldn't you agree?

I happened upon this old frame a couple of years ago and it had this great distressed finish on it. I initially was going to paint it but just didn't have the heart to alter its rustic charm. I placed my twiggy wreath in the middle and have been happy with it ever since.

So, go frame it. Happy creating! Cathy Cobblestone

Love your idea about the frame. Have used an empty frame to frame other pictures/mirrors but not a wreath. Clever idea.
Love the colors you used in your kitchen and your grandmother's towels are so prescious and unique.

What a simple, and neat idea. I think I have an old frame (somewhere). I could do that too. Thanks for the idea.
