I had some leftover flowers from this project, and so I decided to make some wall art. This is maybe the coolest thing I have ever made.
I was at the Dollar Store the other day, and I totally hit the jackpot. I'll have to do a separate post sometime to show all the awesome stuff I found there. I'll just say this for now: GO THERE. And bring more than $10 with you.
Here's my tutorial attempt.
Frames, $1 each.
They came in this red color. They also had black, white, and natural ones. But for Valentines Day, this color was perfect.
And even more so when I distressed it. Did you know they have sand paper at the Dollar Store, too???
I painted some Mod Podge on the glass.
Then I pressed some burlap onto the Podged glass. Sorry, no pics of this part. After it dried, I trimmed down the edges of the Burlap. Then I stuck the glass back into the frame.
And it looked like that.
I chose two little branches, which I had gathered the previous day. I hot glued a few paper flowers to the ends.
Then I glued the branches to the Burlap in the frame. Using a little dot of Gorilla Glue would probably turn out prettier, but I didn't have any on hand.
And ta daa! Beautiful 3D artwork, perfect for Valentines Day. I think they look a little bit like Japanese wall art.
This one is my favorite.
What do you think? (your feedback would be much appreciated)
I'll be linking up to the places on the right. INCLUDING the new craft link party!
A new one?
Yup, that's right! There is a new link party every Wednesday RIGHT HERE. So check back then, and link up your crafts! (even your old ones- they will be new to me :)
