Happy Saturday, rainbow drops! Can you believe that it is May already? I feel like the year is breezing by way too fast. For those of you who live in places where winter was harsh, I hope that you are enjoying the weather. You will soon be enjoying summer, the pool, lemonade and all that good stuff :-) For me, I pretty much enjoy that weather year round, so I'm looking forward to the day when I see snow again.
Today I want to share with you a special project that I made for Gina's Designs. This is a Decorative Frame Shadow Box. It is one of the new products in the store and I really enjoyed working with it. It is currently hanging on a wall in my bathroom. I like looking at it because it feels very cheerful. I hot glued a sawtooth frame hanger to the back so I could hang it on the wall easily.
First I painted the frame with green acrylic paint, then I glued two different papers to the back of the frame. I hot glued some pretty lace trim and large, flat back pearls to the top and a flower ribbon to the bottom. I finished it by adding some flowers, a metal bicycle, a craft bird, a butterfly and some little wood embellishments. It really was that simple! Trust me, you don't have to be a very experienced crafter to decorate a frame like this. It just takes some embellishments, glue and a little bit of time. I had so much fun putting it all together. I hope that you will give it a try. Scroll down for a list of supplies. But remember, as long as you have the decorative frame, you can use whatever supplies you have on hand.
