A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about using things you love to decorate your home. I mentioned my grandmother’s spoon that is on display in my kitchen. Today I’m going to show you how I made the beadboard shadowbox display that it hangs in. Shadowboxes are a great way to display sentimental items that might not happen to be flat!
Here’s how I made my BeadBoard Shadowbox Display:
I started with a shadow box that I picked up at the thrift store for a dollar.
I took out the insert and used it as a template to trace a piece of beadboard wallpaper.
Then I cut it out and attached it to the insert. Easy peasy!
All I had to do after that was paint the frame, tie a ribbon around the spoon, and attach it with a bit of hot glue.
My mom tells me that I must have inherited my love of cooking from my grandma. So every time I look at her spoon, I think of my grandma and the heritage she left me.
Wouldn’t it be cute to frame an old baby bonnet and booties?
What treasured family items could you dig out of storage and start actually using in your home decor?
