Quick Project #2


I love looking through home design books and finding take-away ideas!

This quick project was inspired by a piece of artwork I saw in
 Downtown Chic by Robert and Cortney Novogratz.

I purchased a 16 x20 acrylic frame from Michael's and about 15 bundles of silk daisies from the Dollar Store.

I took the white cardboard box out of the acrylic frame and replaced it with a piece of foam core board cut to size and painted green.

When the foam core dried, I hot glued the flower heads that I pulled off the stems to the board.

I added an inspirational word I stamped on paper and then, secured the finished foam core board into the frame with a few spots of hot glue on each side.

Quick-- Easy--Happy Art!!  

What do you think??? 

Can you spot the two surprises among the flowers?! 



"As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth" 
Isaiah 55:10-11a  The Holy Bible


  1. I found the surprises! Very cute!

  2. You'd have to smile every time you looked at that! Better than flowers in a vase. Great job!
