Framed Yarn Art

I love these colors in this yarn. The are the main colors in both my sewing room and the spare bedroom. I had some left over for a couple of other projects so I thought I would put it to good use and make something to hang on the wall.

I basically just wrapped the yarn around and around a piece of matte that I had pulled out of a frame and never used. I had a big nylon orange flower that I hot glued to it and then I called it done.

It is hanging on a white wall so it looks pretty as is but I am thinking about taking a couple of black and white photos and placing them inside and then this will be a frame for them. If I do that then I think I will angle it a little more cockeyed than I have it now.

I am thinking this would be a cool way to dress up some actual plain frames, too and of course they would be even more sturdy.
