This is the monthly Farmhouse Hens Challenge and the theme is DIY Frames. There were no limits to this challenge, so you could make it, decorate it or build it. As I am completely in the “all things Graduation zone” for my daughter’s party coming up at the end of the month, I went with something that I could hang outside at the party and also use as a photo back drop against a tree. I first saw this cool DIY Floral Photo Hoop on Pinterest here. I knew right away this would be perfect for our DIY Frame Challenge!
How To Make A DIY Floral Photo Hoop
Hula Hoop (Dollar Store)
First of all, I just have to point out how versatile this DIY Floral Photo Hoop is. You can add as many or as few flowers as you like and you can use it as a large wreath. It is actually a perfect size to go over a large mantel or on a feature wall. You can paint it any color you like and also make a seasonal one. With the hoop only costing $1, the possibilities are endless! I gave the hoop two coats of copper spray paint letting it dry in between.
Next, I added just a few silk flowers to each corner. I didn’t want the flowers to take over, as I wanted the photos to be the feature. Just use a dab of hot glue to attach the flowers.
The gold spray paint really makes the hoop more elegant. I will definitely be making a large wreath in the future.
This beautiful pink and lace wide ribbon was a steal at an after Christmas sale.
For the pictures, I wanted them to have an instagram effect, so I printed them out in 4 x 4 and added a white border. I chose a few photos from each of her four years of College.
Of course the beautiful young lady on the left is my daughter, Amanda. But I also have to take a moment to point out the beautiful young lady on the right, Sarahanne. She has been my daughter’s best friend since second grade. Through different schools and different States these two have stayed extremely close. Though with both having busy lives, they don’t get to see each other often, but are always there for each other. As if it was meant to be, they will both be living in New Hampshire and I can truly see these two sharing in each others lives through marriage, children, even grandchildren! Thank you Sarahanne for being such an incredible friend!!
