Are you getting sick of all my paper crafting lately? I have another wall art tutorial for you today, Great Gatsby style. Scallops have made their way into my heart and now my home in the form of turquoise and sparkle.
|P.S. Can you see my 3D Triangle Art in the Sunburst Mirror?|
I started with this bad boy and gave it new life:
Want to make one for yourself? If you can cut a circle, you can make this piece :)
Step One: Find a large frame. I paid $5 for this, 16" x 20" frame at a local thrift store.
Step Two: Remove picture from frame, set aside and give the frame a fresh coat of paint.
Step Three: Cut 54, 5 1/2 inch circles. I, of course, used my Cricut, but there are plenty of other circle cutting tools out there to help speed the process along.
Step Four: Layer the circles edge to edge in a straight row of six. Glue the bottom of the circle to the frame's backing.
Step Five: Continue layering for nine rows, or until you've covered the entire front part of the frame's backing.
Step Six: Flip frame backing over and trim excess. Put the scallops back into the frame.
I think she looks quite lovely paired with my milk glass collection.
Isn't it amazing what a simple shape like a circle can become?
