How to make a spin art shadow box to display your child's artA few months ago we went on a spin art bender of gargantuan proportions.  We just couldn’t get enough.  It was a spinning frenzy.  One of the coolest things we popped in the salad spinner were rocks.  Lots and lots of rocks.  They were so beautiful I was determined to do right by them.  Finally, I figured it out.  Shadow Boxes!

I used the half off coupon at Michaels, which is around the corner from my house.  Both a blessing and a curse.  Anyway, once you have your shadow box, you won’t believe how easy it is to put in the rocks.  Remove the glass and cover the back with white paper cut to size.  I actually just turned that picture they have already in the box of some random family around and glued it in.  Really.  I did.  Then I picked my favorite rocks from the batch and glued them in with Elmer’s glue.  It was so easy.  Normally I would have my girls pick the rocks but they were sleeping and I was psyched to do it.  Let the rocks dry for 24 hours.  Put the glass back on and bam, you’ve got yourself a super cool Spin Art Shadow Box.
