I always get a lot of calendars at the beginning of each year (some free, some I purchase), but whatever, before I throw them out I look through the pictures. These pictures are great for art projects. Here I have two projects from pictures I took out of calendars that match my decor.
One makes use of two old 8-1/2 x 11″ document frames and a piece of white card stock cut to create borders. The other, using an old computer monitor stand, a plastic picture holder, and a piece of cardboard, cut to size, I now have a small bed tray that I use on my daybed to hold coffee, remotes, etc. The feet of the monitor stand keeps the whole set up from falling through.
It just goes to show, you can make something out of almost anything.
