This is my first attempt at making any kind of specimen art, just in time for Easter!
This was a really easy project to do and I like how it turned out.
First, I took a thrifted mirror in which I had spray painted the frame a cream color some time ago and hadn’t found the right place for yet.
Then I took out the glass and covered the inside cardboard insert with a piece of burlap.
For my “specimens,” I decided on a peeps-style bunny shape. I cut out one to use as a template and then replicated it many times over using printed scrapbook paper scraps.
I mounted the shapes in rows using double-sided adhesive foam dots to not only adhere them to the burlap, but to make them pop out a little bit.
What do you think? After making it I wondered whether solid colors would have looked better. Oh well, it’s done now and if I wanted to do another I now know how easy it is.
