Wednesday, April 21, 2010 headboard art

My sister Julie had a box of leftover tulle-wrapped sand dollars that she gave out as wedding favors at her wedding years ago. Currently, I'm helping her accessorize and decorate her master bedroom, and I decided to turn the leftover sand dollars into an art piece to hang over her bed.
I started with a linen like curtain panel from Marshall's, and some stretched canvases from Michael's. I cut up the curtain panel and stapled the fabric to the canvases. I laid out the sand dollars, some collected shells Julie had, and a few store bought shells, and went to work hot gluing the shells and sand dollars to the canvases. This project was very simple and inexpensive and adds some wedding memorabilia to their room in a non-cheesy way.
