collectable Pin frame | Doodlebug Design DT

Hi there, 
 today I'm sharing my collectable pin decor frame 
I just love decorating old frames that I find at the second hand shop
I absolutely love shabby chic look and paper clay and what better way to decorate a cute little frame.
And because I like decor I thought I would make these cute flowers too 
i use a old Pringles container and paper straws.


I started with a 4x6 frame I took it all apart 
I cut a bit of cardboard and a bit of cork sheet and cut it to size to fit in the frame 

I painted the frame with gesso then added some paper clay moulded corners already dry and 
Glued them down with the gesso. Then drying with a heat gun to speed up the drying time 
Then I painted a layer on modelling paste on the frame and left it to dry
And paint the cork with a white paint


Then glue down the cork to the cardboard 
Then mix some pink and white paint creating a light pink and paint the corners with a light coat



Punt the cardboard covered cork into the back of the frame and pop the pins in


And to finish the frame off I added flowers made from the Swiss dots rainbow petitieprints
And leaves from gingham-linen rainbow petite prints and a few cupcake glitter sprinkles
