From the blogger: "Make a unique piece of art for your home using just old magazines and junk mail. It's easy to create something completely individual and matching any color scheme that you like. Our artwork is yellow to match our hallway, and there are even images hidden to represent the interests of each member of the family. By upcycling an old picture frame too this art cost us nothing at all; what a bonus!"

Materials List
