Attached a piece of an old sweater on a cardboard cut to fit the frame, used a spray on glue. Then added this ornament with hot glue. I added an ols button to the center.
What is so nice about this project is if you wanted to make it more sentimental, use a sweater fro someones childhood and attach a pair of their out grown mittens.
Also, it is easy to find a color that matches your living room colors and lots of different things can be added to make it interesting.
Well I actually made two......

I used an old wire wreath form and covered it with gold garlaand from a dollar store, then hot glued the balls in place, I started from the inside, some directions say to start from the out side edge.

What is nice about this jug was the metal top that could be drilled into and the lamp kit fastened to it. And maybe some day it can be just a jug again and something can cover up the hole.

I gave the technical side of the project to my husband, he measured twice, drew a line and screwed the book down. I wanted the screws not to show so we opened the book up first.
I forgot to take picture of the back but I added 2 saw teeth hangers on the corbel.
The Stop and Smell the Flowers framed embroidery came from the "Cutest Thrift Store on the Block" for 99 cents!
