Poppy Art

My buddy is trying to put together a "friends" gallery wall. It'll feature pictures of all her buddies. We were trying to come up with other items to add to the wall to give it some interest. The same room includes a giant painting of a poppy field. So of course she gets to be the recipient/victim of one my projects!

First thing is first: trip to Michaels!
  • shadow box
  • lovely *but fake* flowers
  • spring-y green paper
  • glue sticks for the good ol' hot glue gun
I removed the back of the shadow box frame and glued my bright paper directly onto it.  I got rid of the glass, because it would smush the flowers. Then, using my glue gun, I added the poppies. I set the back of the frame back in place. Now we needed a good quote about friends. I typed up "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you," and added it with a dab of glue to the front.

Ta da: quick, ten minute project, that adds some spring color!
