Butterfly Home Decor


We have been remodeling our house, so I had lots of leftovers laying around the house. I decided to use some of them. I took leftover quarter round and built a frame. The back was leftover base board from our kitchen cabinets.



Then I added cork to the frame, this was leftover too from my cork floor in my craft room. 


Because my cuts were not perfect, I added some 3D paint around the edge of the cork. It's very hard to see from the pictures, but I also have some little rhinestones mixed in with the 3D paint.


I added more rhinestones, this time making a row of them down the middle of the butterflies, adhered the butterflies to my cork and then added the words "smile, laugh, play" to my project.






Supplies:
Cardstock from Bazzill.
Glimmer Screens and Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.
Letters from American Crafts.
Rhinestones from Darice.
3D Paint from Scribbles.
Other: Quarter round, baseboard, cork flooring, paint, nailing gun.
