I just love turning the 50 states into artwork! This fun piece of art from Kristi at I Should Be Mopping the Floor not only features the state of Texas, it was made using several things that could have been tossed in the trash. This is some pretty fine recycling!

Patriotic Window Shutter


Kim tells us, “I have had three old shutters hanging out in my “junk” pile in my garage for the past 2 years.” She recently upgraded one of those plain shutters into a piece of flag wall art, just in time for Memorial Day and the 4th of July. The two-year wait was well worth it, as you can see at her blog Too Much Time on My Hands.

Laura “fell in love with the idea of having a plush faux deer head” in her daughter’s woodland nursery. The price tags she found online, however, scared her off. But when a great online tutorial, some reclaimed wood, and the deer antlers in her garage came together, the results were fabulous! Laura is walking us through the process at The Turquoise Home.

Funky Sand Dollar Mobile

Ann recently inherited a big bag of craft supplies, including a handful of sand dollars. They quickly became the focus of a Mother-Son art project with her paint-loving preschooler. She’s sharing the details at My Nearest and Dearest. This would be such a fun project, so if you are heading to the beach this summer (lucky!!), keep an eye out for sand dollars!
