Sand Dollars+Burlap+IKEA Frames=New Artwork


While I was at my beach condo last week, I decided to make some artwork using sand dollars. I pulled out two white frames that I had purchased at IKEA... some burlap that I had in my fabric stash... went to the local 5&10 store to pick up some sand dollars and I was on my way! This is a VERY SIMPLE project and THRIFTY too...it only set me back about $4.00! I was wanting a change in this bathroom and so I kept it SIMPLE and THRIFTY...two of my favorite words!I'm linking to these FUN parties...come by and check them out!

That is fabulous Linda! I just saw Burlap the other day, orange in fact, I did not pick it up, I want to do something with it but not sure, I love your art work and it has sentiment!

Oh my gosh! I did something similar with a couple of little round picture frames, only once I put the burlap in there, I didn't know what to do with it. Thanks for the idea!
