It may not be here yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t quickly add spring artwork to our homes by bringing flowers indoors. It takes less than 5 minutes and you’ll love the result!
It is the tenth of the month and that means it is time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. We get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Valentine’s Day but this month we are really looking ahead to spring.
This project began a while back when I went to my first yard sale since moving here. I was so excited when I chanced upon a long picture frame which had spaces for five pictures. You can see how the frame is below. It was originally painted gold, but I quickly took care of that with my trusty chalky finish paint. I have done this before, getting rid of the gold on frames. I must have some sort of aversion to it.

How To Make Spring Artwork
I had originally thought about adding music paper as the backdrop with stars in the front.
But eventually settled on this combination. Stars with brown kraft paper.
In fact, if you visited my Christmas Tree then you would have seen this in the background. It really was a beautiful frame. I had painted it with the chalky type paint and then gone over it with the DecoArt Metallic Lustre in White Frost. So now it is white but it is also shiny and frosty. I think this is great as a neutral frame with just a hint of special because of the shine.
When the ladies of “Ten on the Tenth” came up with the idea of doing a project for spring, I immediately thought of this picture frame and adding art to it. It would make the perfect spring artwork.
I looked all over the house trying to get ideas but no luck. I thought of using images from calendars but I had nothing appropriate. So I took a trip to the local Dollar Tree and found this pretty floral wrapping paper. Doesn’t that look lovely? Can you imagine it in five frames?
But then I went to the local drugstore and found this wrapping paper. It cost just five dollars! The flowers were a bit bigger and bolder than the previous paper. And the colors? Just a few and in bright hues that sang of spring to me!
It took all of two minutes to put that wrapping paper in the five picture frame.
Just look at those bold yellows and pinks! Perfect spring artwork! Spring has sprung in my house!
And the best part? This is such a simple idea that you can change it out in a few minutes and usher in any look or season you want.
And that was my super easy project on how to quickly add spring artwork to your home. It also helps if you have one of these cool five opening picture frames. Now tell me which you do like the best the large yellow and pink flowers or the other wrapping paper with the smaller flowers?
I hope you all pop on over to my friends and check out their Valentine’s Day ideas!
