scallop wall art is my fave (guest post from brooke)

May 21, 2012

I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from photo booth prop extraordinaire, Brooke of Playing Grown Up.

I am so excited for Melanie having her sweet babe. So, I thought I’d share a project I made a few nights before my little baby surprised me and decided to come early. (By the way, if you are with child, don’t ever say, “Oh, I’ll finish that project next week.” That’s basically daring your little one to arrive early.) To fill an empty shelf, and to invite some color into our home, I made some scallop art pieces.

To make your own, you’ll need:
– thin pieces of wood
(the kind I use is called an MDF handy panel, and if you bat your eyes the men at Home Depot will cut it to whatever size you ask)
-colorful cardstock
-a circle puncher
-glue

Punch lots of circles from your colorful cardstock.

Then, mark your piece of wood along the edge at half the size of your circles. For example, my circles were two inches, so I made one inch marks along each side. Then connect the dots and make lines across the wood to guide you.

Using your lines to guide each row, get to gluing!

Let each rows of circles hang on top of the row below – that creates your scallops.DSC_0526
Yay! Now our shelf has something on it besides dust.
