St. Patrick's Day Frame {and free printable}

Do you decorate for St. Patrick's Day?  Well... I have a fantastic, easy and inexpensive {$2} project for you.

I made this cute frame using a frame from the dollar store, a strip of scrap felt, and a button.  Cute, right?

All I did was make a simple felt flower {per the tutorial below}, and attach it to the frame with a glue gun. 

To make the flower:
1)  Cut a strip of felt about 1 1/2 inches wide.  
2)  Use hot glue to seal the sides of the strip together.
3)  Cut little slits along the entire length of the strip {being careful not to cut all the way through}.
4)  Start wrapping the flower, using glue to secure it as you go.
5)  Finish by adding a button using hot glue.

And you can download the free 8 X 10 printable here.

Easy peasy!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
