Do you ever get in those weird creative moods where you just itch to do some DIY?
Well this project has inch written all over it. I had a old gold cheap dollar store frame that was a very odd size. I couldn't put a 3x5 or a 5x7 or any other size inside it without it looking awkward.
I had just bought some pretty turquoise paint and wanted to see this color splashed all around my family room to help accent my summer coastal chic decor.
So. . . . . this is what the project ended up to be. A new paint color, old frame and dollar store sea shells and a little ribbon for hanging!
I first started to paint the frame, couldn't wait! I used a cosmetic sponge to create that vintage look.
Next, I glued muslin type material which I already had from scraps onto cardboard backing.
I placed the board back into the frame and arranged my sea shells then hot glued them down.
I trimmed my ribbon to hang. All done!
VERY fun and easy dollar store DIY to do with the kids. How fun to use your vacation shells from Summer for a memory board.
Have you made any summer crafts with the kiddos lately? Post your craft ideas.
It's going to be a bright summer day!
Blessings and Shalom,
