Wall Art Shadow Boxes

I was doing some major cleaning of our storage boxes and found some art treasures hidden since our last move!
This set of scripture shadow boxes was included in my book Inspirational Home. You can easily create this look for your home, too. Use colors to suit your room, these neutrals go in my dining area. (How about pinks for a girl's room?)


Start with your faux flower. Find two coordinating ones of good "realistic" design that are also very flat. Then choose a coordinating background paper with a small pattern. Use it to cover the back of the shadow box to provide depth without distracting. Then type the scripture "The Lord is good" and "His love endures forever. Psalm 100:5" Cut these out and, using large pearl-head pins, pin them in place. If you can't pin into your backing, you can cheat by snipping the pins to shorten them and glue them in place:

What a good idea! I have a growing appreciation for shadow boxes and their many uses and will need to tuck this idea away.
