Step 2.  Take the cardboard insert out of the picture frame.  Trace it onto a thicker piece of cardboard and then cut it out.

Step 3.  Make sure the cardboard piece fits perfectly inside of the picture frame.

Step 4.  Next, cut out the “Market Fresh Flowers” print from our monthly printables subscription group, and then use some Mod Podge to secure the print onto the piece of cardboard.  Allow this to dry.

Step 5.  Double check to make sure the cardboard piece with the “Market Fresh Flowers” print fits perfectly inside of the 4×6 picture frame.

Step 6.  Next, apply some antique wax (I like to use the Dixie Bell brand), to the outer perimeter of the “Market Fresh Flowers” print.  This step just gives an antique/rustic look to the final project. Allow to dry.

Step 7.  Using Waverly antique wax, apply stain to the picture frame.  Allow to dry.

Step 8.  Next, using the “tea rose” color paint from Folk Art, apply some of this paint over top of the stained picture frame using a popsicle stick.  I simply break a popsicle stick in half for this technique.  Applying the paint this way will create a more vintage/farmhouse look to the frame.  Then, allow the picture frame to dry.

Step 9.  Using the “vintage white” color paint from Folk Art, use the same popsicle stick technique to apply some of this white paint over top of the pink paint.  Then, allow the paint to dry.

Step 10.  Take a sanding block over the painted picture frame.  This will help create a vintage look to the final project. 

Step 11.  Apply some Dixie Bell antique wax around the edges of the picture frame and onto the frame in some random areas, then allow this to dry.

Step 12.  Next, add the cardboard insert with the “Market Fresh Flowers” print back into the frame and secure the small latches on the back of the frame to hold everything into place.

Step 13.  Then, add a piece of greenery and a layered bow over the top of the frame and use hot glue to secure them both onto the top center of the picture frame.

Step 14.  Next, add a cute little button onto the center of the bow and secure it into place using hot glue.  Enjoy!
