It’s Wednesday! Hope you’ve been having a wonderful week. Today, I’m sharing the craft I made this weekend. It’s a fun addition to my nautical bathroom décor, plus it incorporates some of the décor I used for our wedding. It turned out even better than I envisioned.
- 5×7 shadow box
- dried starfish of various sizes
- cardstock paper for background
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- spray paint, optional
This first step is actually completely optional. To make the frame match my décor, which is in brown and orange tones, I decided to change it’s color. For this, I just used some Rust-oleum metallic spray paint. A couple of coats did the trick.
Next, measure and outline the area visible in the shadow box. A light pencil mark on the cardstock paper will do.
Start adhering the starfish to the cardstock with a few dots of hot glue on the back. start with the corners of the paper, then the edges and slowly work your way in.
Fill in until the first layer is done. At this point, you can call it quits and hang your piece up, or add more starfish.
I decided to add a second layer to make it look fuller and give it more depth. It is a shadow box after all.
Once finished, assemble the frame and hang up.
Pretty simple, but it actually has a lot of visual interest.
