DIY wall art: glittery shell & burlap /* ]]> */
Aug 062014

I’m a big fan of DIY wall art. Why buy something pre-made from the store when you can flex your crafting muscles (so much fun!) and customize your art to perfectly match your room’s color palette?

I’ve made this shell placemat wall art, these burlap stencil wall pieces, this play room picture frame, these living room picture frames, this entryway picture frame re-do, and so many more. Today’s finished product is going in the master bathroom. I love glitter and I love burlap and this project incorporates both of these elements into a chic beach-themed picture frame.

I had so much white burlap left over after the nautical burlap canvas project and so I was able to use some of that in this project. I love it when I can find stuff to use from my own collection – it feels so resourceful!
