I got a similar idea for this off of etsy recently. I had this extra frame that was a miss cut size and figured I'd give it a shot. I decided to do a crazy quilt of fabric scraps I had that match the colors I am trying to stick with for my master bath. I love it because it holds a nice collection of my fancy pins that I can look at everyday.
I patched this together onto muslin, tacked it down with Fabri-Tac ( let it dry before sewing!) and then machine sewn all the ribbons/trims on. wrapped it around foam core board and popped it into the frame. If I did it again I would have paid a bit more attention to the piece work of the quilt but it's just for my bathroom.

I never thought I'd use these gold holographic leaves (alone they are pretty tacky and gaudy) but they worked perfect! the tree structure was done with a Krylon gold paint pen & Webster's pages sticker from the Magical Wishes line. I never use gold embellishments but it was kinda a fun change of pace.
