Howdy Friend!

I wanted to share a really cool and easy DIY art tutorial with you today. The process couldn’t be any easier. In fact, it’s so easy that I created two extra sets so that you can have one too! After the short tutorial below, there will an easy to enter giveaway! Yay!

Pretty Framed Agate Slices
This little art project started with the pulled apart remains from my DIY Geode Specimen Art. While I loved that piece, it was a large frame and I never found a happy home for it. With the recent addition of a bright pink rug and a pink ukulele in our living room, I wanted to continue the color in a few other places.

agate frames

It’s so easy to whip up! I bought inexpensive shadow box frames from the dollar store and disassembled them. Using one of the included pieces as a guide, I cut out pieces of poster board (also from the dollar store) to fit the frame.

double sided table or hot glue works well

Then using either hot glue or double sided tape (hot glue especially for the heavier slices), attach the *Agate Slices to the poster board. You can either spray paint the frames before reassembling, or simply reassemble.

They look so pretty and are such a fun pop with the brighter colors! Eventually they will sit on the fireplace mantle (I’m determined to have one very soon!). I’m enjoying my own trio of framed agate slices so much that I wanted you to have one too!

bright or neutral

Because the slices come in an assortment of colors, I have a set of blue toned slices and warm neutral slices for you to choose from. Use the easy widget below to enter to win either set for yourself! I’m happy I have the opportunity to share one of my little creations with you!

  2. LOVE these, Corinna! They look great in the small frames!

  3. Oh and I would pick blue. 🙂

  4. Raina DelRio says:

    These are stunning! It is so hard to choose a favorite. I love the Neutral &Earth Tones

  5. The blue ones would match fabulously with my teal agate wind chimes! Great DIY- thanks!

    • I saw agate wind chimes at our local strawberry festival! They’re so pretty, I wanted to buy one. I figured I could make one, though. The constant DIY struggle, lol.

  6. Wow! What a difficult decision – they are both so gorgeous! I have to say – the peacock blues are calling my name a little louder though 🙂 Love this giveaway Corinna!

  7. I love these. I’ve been digging the agate bookends and decor that ice seen lately, but I love your slice artwork so much!!! I’m dying to win the blue one. If I don’t, I might just have to make my own 😉
    Cool Giveaway!

  8. I think the blue is my favorite! But I like the pink a lot too!

  9. Those are simply gorgeous! It’s so hard to pick a favorite. I love the deepness of the varying shades of the “bright blue.” But there’s something clean and simple about the neutral earth tones. 🙂 To be honest, I’d be thrilled to display either set in my house!

  10. I think I’d pick the Bright and Blue–but I love them both!

  11. These are absolutely beautiful! I think I’d choose the blues ones. They are stunning in the white frames.

    I would want the bright blue set!

  29. laura casino says:

    My my…..such an awesome idea! You know, my youngest daughter is obsessed with collecting rocks, precious stones and such. I would say my first choice would be the pink ones because that is her favorite color, however, I honestly would take any color. In my living room a set of purple ones would look great, but neutral would work as well 🙂

  30. These are fabulous! I love the blue ones best.

  31. These are beautiful! I like the blue ones best

  32. Thanks for the giveaway, Corinna! I’m thinking those blue agate slices would look perfect in my main living area! 😉 Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

  41. the neutral/earth tones are beyond awesome!!

  42. Deborah Gardner says:

    The Blue and Earth Tone Agates are simply stunning! These would really petty up my apartment!

  43. Vincent E. says:

    I love the deep rich hues of the blue agate! I’ve been thinking of making a couple of these for myself but haven’t been able to really find any agate slices I like.
    Everywhere I go from Pottery Barn to Homegoods, it seems like blue and indigo are the colors for accents. Geodes and agates are starting to become a big thing too. A combination of both are perfect!

  44. I love the look of these. So simple, yet so beautiful! Thank you for linking up at the Merry Monday Linky Party!

  45. Both of the colors are beautiful, but I like the blue 🙂
