I wanted to save a few things from our honeymoon to frame and cherish in the days to come. I found a black frame in our back bedroom. Gathered up a couple of old board games of Scrabble that I bought for $1 at a yard sale (I LOOOOVE Scrabble), a dictionary, and some memorabilia. Armed with my glue gun I got to work...
I took a page from the dictionary and cut it to the size of the frame for the background. I chose my letters from the Scrabble game...
Hot glued Paris to the top of the frame...
Then I added coins that we had saved from the honeymoon. I also wanted to add a couple of metro tickets to the collage as well. I wanted a "3D" effect if you will, so I hot glued coins behind the tickets, so they would "jump off" the page. I was pretty happy with the final product!
This would also make a fun idea to make gifts for friends & family. You could easily spell out their names, and add items of their interest!
I was still burning with lots of energy! So I decided to finish up a project that I had been wanting to finish for a long time. :D
I found this urn at thrift store for a couple of bucks. I thought with a little spray paint, it could be a cute little base for a flower arrangement. I found some great chocolate colored spray paint to accomplish my goal.
Hobby Lobby was having a great 50% off sale for their flowers, so I stocked up on a few that I wanted to make an arrangement with. I was going for a look that was festive enough for the holidays, but could be used throughout the winter!
So I was excited to finally have a centerpiece for our dining table!
...and that is how I spend my afternoons with DIY energy running through my veins. If only that would happen more often! :) Check out more fun DIY stuff at A Soft Place To Land and Today's Creative Blog...see link below!
