Spring home decor


Hello! I have had this project on my mind for weeks, and I finally found a perfect, affordable frame over the weekend. Happy Mother's Day to me! :)

The project plays tricks on your eyes, doesn't it? When you look at it straight on in the top photo it looks more like a print than a 3-D altered piece.


Just a little spring to get us all excited about warmer weather, birds chirping and pretty things everywhere we look.

My tip for this project (as I am linking up over at Tip Junkie—join in!) is to use a hot glue gun. I have struggled with so many other types of glue that's supposed to be fabulous for altered projects, but I have yet to love anything so much as I love my hot glue gun.

My other tip is to keep it simple. I was tempted over and over again to add things around the edges and put ribbons on the nest. Simple and clean is sometimes the only answer.

Hope everyone's week is going well so far!
