DIY Rosette Frame Tutorial

Hey guys!

I’m back to share the full tutorial on my frame I shared a couple of days ago!

My first step was cutting my MDF.  I used 1/2″ MDF.  You can get a full 4′x8′ sheet for only $25 and have the hardware store rip it down into smaller boards for you.

My piece is 16″x20″.  My next step was cutting a hole in the MDF.  I want to be able to access my frame on top so that I can change out my picture.  This step is totally optional. You can attach the frame with a picture you don’t plan to change and forget the hole :-)

I used my Dremel Saw-Max™ to cut mine.  Don’t forget… We are giving one away right now! Go enter HERE!

Then I gave the whole board a good coat of a new favorite color I discovered…

Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Granite! You can find it at Home Depot.

While that was drying I started on my frame.  I bought this cheap 8×10 wall frame at Hobby Lobby.

 I gave it a coat of another fav…

After both pieces were dry I glued the frame to the top of my MDF using Gorilla Glue Epoxy.  I like that it has the consistency of hot glue, but a very permanent hold.

Now for the flowers!  I have done many rosette tutorials in the past, and here is a quick refresher!

These really are as simple as they look.  You just roll your strip of fabric out and glue down as you go.  Start from the middle and work out! Easy!  I made lots and attached them with hot glue!

Finally I thought it needed a little “something”.  I cut two strips of fabric and stapled them to the back of the frame.  With the loose ends, I tied a knot.

I found this great hook at Hobby Lobby as well and gave it a quick coat of the Heirloom White.  I sanded the edges to shanty it up a bit ;-)

That was it!  I added my picture and hung her up!

What do you think??

If you like it I would LOVE for you to pin and share it below ;-)

Happy Easter Weekend!

    I love this. Am wanting to use this idea as we are awaiting the arrival of our little girl. Was wandering how the picture is held in? Do you just use the prongs on the back of the 8×10 frame? Also, see that a few of the flowers are in burlap, but I see you using the other material with a lot of your rosettes. Do you mind telling me what kind of fabric that is.

    Love the project… and really, really love the new paint tip! Buying 6 cans for a project I am in the midst of. Thanks for the great instructions! I will make my own version and send a photo of the outcome. Amazing as always!
