Shadow Box Ideas

Frugal home decor projects can spruce up your home with just a little creativity.

These shadow boxes were built by my husband to display my small collection of milk glass vases. A collection has much more impact as a display when the items are grouped together. (Yes, this is my whole collection of vases- all 4 of them!)

The shadow boxes are just 4 pieces of wood each, with trim glued to the edges, mitered corners and routed holes on the back, then painted white and hung on 2 screws.
All 4 of these vases were picked up at thrift stores or the flea market.

You could use this idea to display many types of items: glassware or pottery, small salvaged goods like keys or doorknobs, antique toys, holiday decorations, figurines, etc.

Check out your local resale sources for a few similar items that appeal to you, then put them on display!
