On The Wall {Day 2} Dorothy’s Red Shoes

I’m back to share day 2 of my challenge to myself.  I’m sharing 5 straight days of ideas to decorate your walls using only what I already have in my house.  That’s right folks, I’m not spending a dime.  I’m also hoping it will help me free up some drawer and closet space.

I’m making use of my Canon printer, some red glitter, stickers and reusing a shadowbox frame I already had to create a little piece of one of my favorite childhood movies.

You guessed right if you said Oh my God, it’s Dorothy’s shoes from the Wizard of Oz!  Along with Pollyanna, it’s one of my childhood favorite movies.  I first shared this pic in a post about a year go.

In our entry way we have a large Wizard of Oz painting and a smaller pencil drawing of the Cowardly Lion.  I thought it would be cute to add Dorothy’s shoes.

I printed a pic off the internet and trimmed it down to fit on a piece of scrapbook paper I had glued to a piece of cardboard from a cereal box.  I coated the shoes in Mod Podge glue and sprinkled on red glitter.  Remember to shake the paper after a few minutes to get rid of the excess that didn’t stick.

The shadow box was a freebie given to me by my neighbor.  He’s in the frame business.  Lucky me!  I’m quite happy  how the shoes turned out, especially when I had to do the glue /glitter thing again to fill in a few gaps.  Once I put the picture in the frame it still needed something so I added some sticker trim onto the glass of the frame.  Then I was short on the trim, thus the reason for the flower.  Remember my challenge to myself, no money spent.

What do you think?  Am I totally wacko?  Do you like The Wizard of Oz?
