DIY: Unique Art Piece

I HEART DIY PROJECTS



When I mean love - I mean I see something I always think - OMG I need I can make and so I pick things up to make stuff and then it sits idle. But then I come across stuff that I may not make at the moment but are still drool worthy. I saw this amazing art piece on DesignSponge.com a few days ago. I know it's meant for valentine's day but I just loved loved loved the concept behind this - and well you can always switch it around and maybe make a lovely X-mas gift?



Here is a detailed picture of the art piece

What she used

1. one sheet of watercolor paper, any size you want (this is 11×15)
2. vintage jewelry pieces, knick-knacks, keys, buttons, etc.
3. paper punch (i used a butterfly punch from the martha stewart craft collection) (optional)
4. colored paper
5. hot glue gun
6. paint (i recommend spray paint)
7. frame
