DIY ARTWORK

A few days ago, I promised to share 
how I made my spring artwork. 

If you didn't get to read the post, go here to read it.



This project was another of my "use what you have" projects.

Here's what I gathered from around the house to make it.

-5 X 7 Picture Frame
- Moss
- Eggs
-Scrapbook Card Stock Paper
- Hot Glue

I started by removing the glass from the frame, and replaced it with a piece of textured card stock paper (cut to 5 X 7 inches).
I then laid the moss out in the arrangement I wanted. 

The moss was then hot glued to the card stock paper.

Last year I bought a bag of eggs at Easter.

I took 6 of them from the bag and added...



... sticker letters to spell - SPRING.



I then glued the eggs to the moss.

This was so easy to make costing very little because
I used what I had.
