Either way, this little project was a no-brainer, once I figured out the things I had to do, and the pattern I ultimately settled on. (the pattern selection was the most time consuming!)
First off, I started with this seen-better-decades frame that I got for $5 at the thrift shop. I painted the frame, and covered the print with a white canvas fabric. I used spray adhesive for the front side, then hot glued the edges around the back (one of the things I did NOT do in the error version of this craft). Since the marbles from my failed attempt pulled right off, I didn't waste anything more than the fabric.
Then, with my warmed up glue gun, I determined a pattern (but not after playing around with a few before!) and glued the marbles down in the desired pattern. Pretty simple, huh? Like this wreath from October... Hmmm... I'm getting ideas for a new wreath :)
hehe, didn't do this version, but the possibilities are endless!
The pattern is very geometrical. I realize I like straight lines. After all, I've posted about this pattern here, here and even here.
