framed sand dollar art

rectangle frames

Over the past few months, I’ve noticed my home decor gradually getting lighter, softer, and simpler. I’m not sure if it has to do with the warmer weather, but, last week I wanted to change out the dark floral wallpaper in the frames above my living room windows.

Not 15 minutes later, I had my solution:

Here are the frames before…

Pretty, but just a bit dark for my current tastes.

To get the new look, I just removed the old wallpaper and inserted some fun coral wallpaper I found in my stash. Don’t have wallpaper? Scrapbook paper or wrapping paper would work just as well!

I then hot glued three sand dollars in the center of each frame.

So easy! I love instant gratification crafting!

PERFECT!!!! Is there glass in the frame? I was think that would work beautifully for collected seashells, too. Hmmmm.....I have too much to do right now (with my parents' 50th wedding anniversary only a week from today), so I'll have to attempt this easy, but gorgeous project afterwards!

I have some amazing scrapbook card stock paper that would be STUNNING with some shells!!! Thanks for the inspiration! **BTW~~have you see the PRICE of this type of wall decor???? Ridiculous!!

Hey hon! YES! Would look amazing with seashells, too (or starfish!!) No glass in the frame, which is good b/c they are due to fall off the ledge and onto the ground any minute now, ha ha:) And, yes, it's crazy how expensive this stuff is...when it's sooo simple to make! Good luck with the party next week--I know it'll be amazing!! xoxo
