Misc. Household Objects Project

Well, I have finally gotten my craft stride back. For some reason I had no desire to craft/scrapbook for a good 3 months. Then, just like that, it hit me again and I have not stopped since! Here is a project that I found in a free coupon booklet I received in the mail. I got it on a Thursday and had it made by Sat. I was so excited to get the craft vibe back I couldn't stop until it was done.
Here is how I made it:
I went to the 2 local thrift stores and bought the misc bags of toys, kitchen supplies, jewerly, etc. It cost me maybe $10 for it all. I also picked up a few games that had lots of pieces. I then spray painted them all. Used a glue gun to glue them down on foam board, then framed them, minus the glass in the frame. I had laid out the pieces before I spray painted them and then took a picture so I could glue it down the same way. It was a very fun, creative project. Now, I just have to find a place to hang them.
