Do It Yourself: Wall Art

I love this wall Art! I Found this great symmetrical frame set here and it runs for about 150 dollars.
If you are like me then you see things like this and say "I think I could make that".

1. At your local Dollar Store Find 6 frames that look similar to the frames above in any color. (Thin frames would look great too.)

2. Head to Walmart or any other place that would sell paint supplies and buy a can of white spray paint. (Walmart has cans of white spray paint for 1$.)

3. Scrounge up or buy 6 pieces of Black Paper.

4. Go on a walk and pick flowers. The flowers in these frames look like they are painted but you could get the same look with pressed flowers.

5. Put it all together to create your very own wall art! (You may want to use a little bit of glue to hold the dried flowers in place.)

Ta Da! For under 10 dollars we have re-created the same thing!!
Sophies Tip: Never pass up the chance to go on a walk and pick flowers... Especially if the product of that walk leads to beautifying white walls.
