Home Decor Project by Lydia!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Hello Everyone!  Lydia here with a fun home project for you.  I have had a blank wall in my kitchen for almost a year and finally found came up with an idea for that blank space.  I found this frame at our school's fair.  Now....I didn't care for the leopard picture but knew the frame would be perfect for what I was thinking.

The first thing I did was to take the print out of the frame.  I attached chicken wire to the frame with a staple gun.  After the wire was attached, I spray painted the whole thing.

I found these frames at a second hand shop for $1 and knew they would be perfect for the inside of the big frame.

After a coat of spray paint, they were ready to be hung with thin hobby wire.

My best friend Lynne, gave me these glass tubes for my project.  They are perfect because they already had a hole in the back to be wired on.  I was wanting something that could be attached easily and yet be changed out if I wanted.  Thanks, Lynne....love them!!

(With the tubes being clear glass, it is really hard to photograph them well.)  

I added just a wee bit of water and fresh flowers from my garden.  I can change out the flowers or add wee shells or something in the tubes as I feel like it.  

I love the end product!!!

So for just a few dollars, I have a great piece of art to display on my wall.  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!  While you're here, check out the current challenges and chances to win great prizes.  
Happy Crafting!  :)

Wonderful creativity. Reminds me of something that was shown on the Nate show that precedes Ellen's show here at 3pm CT. Now if the print had been a Cheetah I'd ask you to send to me. Leopards are more common and I like Cheetahs. I've bought frames second hand just to reuse the frame & be rid of the print.
