3d Spring Art




A pretty picture frame, a sweet bird's nest and a glue gun. Sometimes, the simplest ideas turn into the best kind of DIY projects. The inspiration for this 3d art came from two sources. First, I pinned this beautiful project with the vague idea that I could put my own spin on it, perhaps a little simpler. Second, I took a trip to Michaels, keeping in mind the basic elements of the artwork, as I wandered the aisles.



I saw a few styles and sizes of the bird's nest, but decided on a small size, with no embellishment. For the frame, I started out looking at simple frames that I could add some pretty scrapbook paper or even burlap to. Then I spotted this lovely wood frame with paper already inserted. The colors were perfect for my master bedroom and I knew the print would look really sweet and lovely with the simple bird's nest.

Doing the project this way, was a little more expensive than putting scrapbook paper in an inexpensive frame, but this was exactly the look I had envisioned, so I went with it. And, as far as instructions - simply use a glue gun to position the nest on the frame and your 3d art project is complete.

Sweet and simple for springtime.

Happy Wednesday!
