We’ve said before that we would like to have a gallery wall down the hallway of the living room. We purchased some frames, but unfortunately I haven’t found/made any art to go into the frames. (We want to use items that have special meaning to us). That is, until now! While rearranging the closet in the second bedroom I found a white rose Ricky gave to me on our wedding day.
I have been trying to keep it safe all these years until I decided how to display it, but as I was cleaning out the closet the stem broke. Oh, no! Then it dawned on me: it’s now the perfect size to put in a shadow box!
I wanted to add interest behind the rose using scrapbook paper. I rummaged thought several pages I had collected and until I found the perfect backdrop.
I trimmed it to size and taped it to the matting.
Then I positioned the rose to until I liked the placement.
To attach the rose to the paper, I added a small dab of glue from a hot glue gun to the stem. I only used a little bit because I didn’t want to damage the rose and the rose was light enough that it didn’t require any additional adhesive.
Then I put the shadow box together and voila! Seminal wall art!
Now only about 20 more items to finish our gallery wall…
