DIY Little Girls Floral Name Frame.. ♥

As I previously mentioned, it was my nieces 8th birthday at the weekend. So a few weeks ago I started making this for her as a little additional gift. She has started wanting her bedroom decorated in a similar style to my own, with pastel colours and floral decorations. So I thought that I would make her a DIY gift that I put thought into and that will also match her bedroom.

So it started off as an old wooden picture frame which I gave a lick of emulsion paint to make it white. I picked it up from a car boot sale for £1 a little while ago.

I then printed out her name on paper, using letters in a bold font and large size so that they would fill the length of the frame.

I carefully cut them out, and then chose some patterned wallpaper and used the letters as templates to cut around the wallpaper.

I used different patterned paper for each letter to give a more vintage mis-matched look. I also cut out a longer length of contrasting wallpaper to use as the background.

I then just stuck the letters to the background, and put the whole thing into the frame! I love the way it ended up, I wouldn’t mind making one for myself! I hope she likes it 🙂

    What a beautiful gift for her to treasure. I love that this is so pretty yet so personal and thoughtful. Hopefully she can still look back on this in years to come 🙂
