Shadow boxes are great art and decor pieces. I love how I can gather various items that fit a theme and arrange them in a frame to create multidimensional, mixed media art. As you can see here, I used some spools of brightly colored thread, thimbles, pins, and a swatch of my Fabulous '50s fabric. I turned wire into clothes hangers and a spool into a dress form. I embroidered some tulle and crisscrossed thread around the objects. Anything goes!
