I attached the fabric to the back part of the frame. Then I used fabric glue to attach the buttons to the fabric. Then I placed the whole thing in the frame
For the frame, I had a nice new 10" x 17" wooden frame. I thought it looked a little blah when I put the cross in it. So I sanded it and tried to figure out how to add some color without spray paint (it was too late to spray paint and I knew I could come up with something that didn't need much drying time). Here's what I did: I got some red acrylic paint and added water. Then I proceeded to brush that on the frame- kind of like white-washing, only it was red-washing!
I still felt like it needed something, so once it was dry, I got some antiquing medium and rubbed it on the paint. It made the wood lines pop out. I was pleased with the effect.
To finish it off, I added rub on letters that say, "Believe."
I just freehanded this cross, but if you'd like to make one, you could always print out a cross, cut it out, and trace around it on the fabric. Then just make sure you cover up your pencil marks.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by and God bless. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
