Framed Monogram

     Sometime ago I covered a paper mache letter with an old Colorado map. You can see it here. I intended to give it to a friend as a gift, but I felt it was missing something. So I took an old black frame, roughed it up with some sandpaper, and removed the glass. Then I used spray adhesive to attach burlap to the back of the frame (the part that is usually covered by a photo). Using spray adhesive again, I placed the map letter right in the center.

 
     For the ribbon, I made two holes in the back of the frame before adhering the burlap. I ran the ribbon through the holes, then tied it at the top.
 
     Quick and easy- and it somehow looks more complete this way, I think.
 
     Thanks for stopping by and God bless. 
 
 

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.

What a creative idea. I love anything with burlap and the map letter makes it so personal.
