Decorative Frame Shadow Box by Marfa

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.
