Hot Glue and You!

by Sherrie on February 24, 2009

I know what you are thinking. “Are you crazy? Hot glue and fingers don’t mix.” We can be friends with hot glue. Hot glue can be a great alternative for a no-sew project. So get a cold glass of water to dip your fingers in and let’s get crafting.

Spring is approaching, so to get in the spirit let’s create a cute hanging fabric framed collage. This would be perfect for all of your Easter photos, too!

Here is what you will need:

  • fabric scraps (fat quarter size)
  • 3, 5×7 frame mats
  • craft fleece cut to the size of each frame
  • a spool of ribbon (approximately 1 ½ yards)
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun

Now repeat these steps for all the frames.

Did you burn your fingerprint off yet? Well it was worth it. Hang your new décor somewhere special. Make one to match your child’s room and show off picture of them. This collage would also make a great gift for those deserving grandparents. Get creative and use fun pictures with fun fabrics! Happy crafting.

So very cute Sherrie! Great idea. It would probably work great for a baby shower gift too- for maybe those ultrasound pics or for newborn pics.

OMG I love this idea, it’s so wonderful! I definitely am inspired to try this! If I do end up making it, I will link back to your blog so that anyone who sees my beautiful creation will know that it was totally inspired by you! Uh-Mazing :)
