Framed Apple


Today I worked on my Apple Arrangement... It took me back to my  fun days as a Floral Designer.  I have not done any designing in years and found how much I really enjoyed doing it.


This project started when I found this old apple door hanging in a closet.  I did not want to toss it and thought I'd do something different with it... so I went to a few garage sales and paid $2.00 for this frame.

It's pretty heavy and of good construction but much too big,, I took it apart and cut to a smaller size,, one to hold the apple door hanging....







After gluing it all back together I then painted with glaze and wood stain.







I used my glue gun  to attach the apple door hang, then looking at it I felt it was much too bland in color so I went to a table arrangement of silk flowers and pinched a few..


Yes, just what it needed for color...


Now that it's finished I found the perfect spot on the wall above my new green table lamp.... Not bad!


You know, I like the dimension it brings to the framed art.... the colors are also nice against my blue painted wall.....  
It's a good thing to recycle old items into something new and useful and I also brought back some happy memories of my days working with silk flowers.

Sandy that is beautiful. Love the combination of the green and blues. Great job of recycling the door hanger.

I'm getting anxious for the yard sales to start in our area. Still have a couple of months to go before they start though.

Sandy, I love the flower framed art. How pretty! The frame is gorgeous too, and what a good price. I'm always amazed at what frames cost. You are such an inspiration to me.

Love the color combination and love the "dimension"!!!

They don't look much when they were separate: frame and the apples. But when put together, it can rival any painting display in the house.
