Picture Frames With A Twist

I recently came across THIS post over at BETH'S Blog. I instantly fell in love with THIS one! I love how LAYLA used jars to hold her photos and the rope she used around her candles. I decided to combine the two ideas and came up with these:

My Supplies (glue gun not pictured):

I purchased the vases and sand at the Dollar Tree, had the shells and photos at home, and found the jute at Walmart for super cheap!

All I did was bust out my glue gun and wrap the jute cord around the bottom of each vase (applying a dot of glue here and there). Then I filled them up with my $1 sand, threw in a picture and a shell, piece of coral, & a star fish.

Viola!! Doesn't get much cheaper or easier than that!

Here they are displayed on my mantel:

My mantel drives me a little crazy because it is so skinny!! It's hard to add dimension. I feel like these make things a little more interesting. Better than just lining up picture frames I think.

I also found the time to work on a couple fun projects for my Master Bathroom. I'll be sharing them with you all soon!

Until then......
