Natural Beauty

These extra-deep shadow boxes from Pottery Barn are perfect for showcasing larger objects. This grouping is composed of faux natural objects -- painted eggs, butterflies delicately constructed from feathers, and flower buds made from dried nutshells -- which are less delicate to work with and easier to come by than the real things (you can find these items at most crafts stores). When creating boxes that will be hung together, keep the arrangements uncomplicated for strong visual impact. In these shadow boxes the objects were glued to pieces of woven burlap secured at each corner with pins. The advantage of this semipermanent technique is that items can be changed to reflect the splendor of the season: Collections of seashells in summer, pinecones in winter, or preserved leaves in autumn make for charming wall art as well.
