"mom/me" mother's day wood frame

"MOM/ME" Mother's Day Wood Frame
Step 1
Click here to download and print out the template. Cut out the pattern and set it aside.  
Step 2
Find the letters in the foam bucket, but do not peel off the backing. Start from the bottom left corner and lay the “MOM” letters, going vertically up the left side of the frame. Lay the “E” to the right of the last “M” from “MOM” to form “ME”. Make a mark slightly above the first “M” in “MOM” and after the “E” in “ME”. Remove the letters from the frame.
 
TIP: If you choose to use names or oher words, lay one going up the left side and the other across the bottom, both from the left corner. 
Step 3
Paint the left corner of the frame white from the mark you made above “MOM” to the mark you made after “ME”. Paint the outer and inner edge as well. 
Step 4
Mark the frame near the top, right about 2" in from the right edge. Paint yellow from the bottom left corner where the white ends across the bottom, up the right side and across the top to the mark. 
Step 5
Finally, paint light green on the remaining unfinished wood. Set the frame aside to dry. 
Step 6
Cut 12-4" squares of tissue paper for the flower. Stack them on top of one another and then lay the pattern on top and trace around it. Cut all the layers to the 3" circle. 
Step 7
Fold the stacked circles in half and make 2 cuts near the center to insert the chenille stem through to secure the flower. Open the layers, keeping them stacked, and insert a chenille stem from the bottom through one hole, up through the top about 1" and back down through the other hole. Twist the chenille stem to secure. 
Step 8
Holding the chenille stem securely, pull the first layer of tissue up, and pinch at the base. Continue this with each layer until the flower is formed. Once the flower is formed, cut the remaining long portion of the chenille stem off and set aside. 
Step 9
Using the Holiday Green paint, paint a stem in the yellow area of the frame, across the bottom and up the right side, following the image as a guide. Add leaves to the stem and then glue the tissue flower to the top right corner, which should be where the stem ends. Let dry. 
Step 10
Remove the backing of the letters and stick into place. 
Step 11
If desired, add white dots to embellish the frame by dipping the non-brush end of the paintbrush into white paint and pressing it to the frame. Let dry.
