I believe we have exactly two free weekends between the end of basketball & the beginning of spring soccer! This past weekend was one of them, so we decided to make the most of it by knocking a few items off the list.
As I have mentioned previously, my son is a collector. Until recently, some of his cool collections were just sitting in his closet. In order to inject more of his interests into his bedroom décor, I decided to use those collections as artwork for his walls.
First, I hot glued his collection of shark teeth onto a piece of black cardstock & framed it in a shadow box. (I surrounded it with a couple of free printables found here & here.)
Next, we used a couple of nails to mount his collection of state quarters. (Just a few more to find…)
My husband built two display boxes for some of his most special rocks. (This was a lesson in patience for both of us! Who would have thought making these would have been so frustrating! Black paint & wood filler are hiding a multitude of problems!) He made the ceramic owl in school art class.
Lastly, I framed a rock, two shells, & a postcard of rocks we got at a “rock mining” tourist trap.
Who would have thought all those things stashed in his closet could look so cool up on his wall!
