One really cute boy projects-home decor

I don't know about you but when I see boy things I tend to go a tad crazy. You see in our home it is all about our daughter, she's our only child and we love her dearly! But when I have a chance to do anything for a boy, I dive head first in not really knowing what I am accomplishing. Just enjoying the process of doing something different than the normal. Point in case, our next door neighbors just had their first baby! Of course when I found out he was a boy, I hopped on this project and went to town!

Here is the finished product:

This project is a very fast and an easy one, which works well for anyone needing a quick turn around project as a gift! I was super excited to make this for little DJ's nursery as well as create a shadow box, something I've never done!

Supplies to get you started:

1. Getting started, I took out the back of the frame. This was going to be my background paper. I cut an 8x10 square and then glued that onto the frame.

2. After the background paper was in place, I set about cutting circles using my Coluzzle circle cutter. I cut 15 of them. It was easy to use the base of the paper because it already had circles on the paper!

3. Once those were cut, I cut out a red heart from cardstock paper.

4. I then took another piece of GCD Studios papers and cut out the cute animals from the paper.

5. I then place pop dots on the 8x10 background piece of paper/frame and spaced them far enough apart to get a good effect.

6. Once I had the pop dots in place, I stuck down all of the circles.

7. I felt a space for the heart in the second row. I embellished the heart and then placed it on pop dots as well.

8. Once each of those circles and my heart was in place, I then placed the two cut outs from the GCD Studio papers on to the frame. I embellished both of them to add texture to the frame.

9. The last thing I did was add DJ's name.

10. This project took about 30 minutes from start to finish.

  2. Home decor gives horse lovers a chance to show their love and appreciation for their four-legged friends. There are all kinds of home furnishings, accessories, and accents that feature a horse of some sort. It might be a table lamp with a horse sculpture on the base, a comforter that depicts horses running across a meadow, or a piece of wall art with a horse theme.
