Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis inexpensive wall art is a piece the whole family can enjoy, as they helped create it.
This simple and inexpensive abstract art project was fun to make for the whole family. All that was needed was nine matching frames, everyday household objects and some vibrant craft paint.

First, the backs are taken off the frames; they are used as the canvases. They are laid out in the position they will hang on the wall. Next, the various objects are laid across the canvases in a random pattern. This family used a saxaphone, drumsticks, a baseball bat and a few other objects.

The images are traced onto the canvases using pencil. Then the objects are removed and each object is painted a different color. The artwork creates an instant focal point in the room and has a personal meaning for the whole family.
