This project idea was inspired by a Youtube video by Caroline, “My Home of the Hillside”. In her video, Caroline created 3 Shabby Chic projects featuring Rosette Roses hand-made from strips of scrap fabric. Well, I just had to try making these beautiful trash to treasure roses! And with that, came my Shabby Chic framed Dragonfly project. This creation features an upcycled old frame and other reuse and repurposed materials.
Be sure to watch Caroline’s video on how to make these Rosette Roses as well as my Quick Tips Mixed Media video below for the step by steps on my project.
