Quick and easy wall art!

Are your kiddos back in school yet?  

We're soaking in the last week and change of summer here, but even after school starts, we'll be keeping it beachy here all year long in our "beachy" themed Sun Room!

A couple of skinny little walls {brats!} were crying out for some love, so Sam and I made these in about five minutes for just $ 4.

I had lots of leftover shells from my beachy burlap wreath...

so I pulled out a couple of Ikea frames {$1.99 each}, some scrapbook paper, a few supplies {paper cutter, glue gun, pencil}, and had my best helper pick out some of his favorite shells...

We just traced the paper, pulled out the glass that came with the frames, hot glued on the shells, and hung them on the wall.  They coordinate so well with my Beachy Burlap Subway Art too!

I'm all about quick, easy, and inexpensive craft projects these days!

So cute!! I love the beach!! I can't wait to see the "unveiling" of your new sun room! :)

NO WAY!!! I swear our minds are connected! I've been working on the exact same thing in the exact same colors! I've already painted my frames white and the backgrounds aqua and just haven't attached my shells yet! Yours look fabulous!
