Hair Clip Frame Tutorial

So do you like? I cannot claim that I thought this up, but can't remember where I saw it. Sorry! But it's the cutest hair clip frame! And it cost me $3. Can't beat that!

So I started with this frame from my church's thrift store for $3. Love it! No paint or anything needed.
Then I took this beautiful bird fabric that I love and my daughter has on her nightlight I made.
I removed the picture in the frame (didn't have glass which I didn't need anyways) and cut a rectangle bigger than the picture. Used Mod Podge on the back edges and folded fabric tight and let dry. Then I cut different ribbons a little longer than the back. I did four rows.
Extra length of ribbon.
I used craft glue to glue ribbon ends to back of piece. Let dry.
Pushed back into place (was very tight).
Close-up of back.
To make the back look a little nicer/tidier, I cut a rectangle from a brown paper grocery bag and used the craft glue to attach to back.
Attach clips and enjoy! I already filled this one and still have more clips, especially flower clips that I love to make. Oh well, it's a start and I LOVE how it looks in my daughter's room.
