Shrines made from boats!! That's right, boats!!

Lately, for some reason everything I see looks like a shrine. Maybe it's because i've been gearing up for a Day of the Dead show or maybe i'm just crazy. Anyways, i've decided that boats, you know, the ones that look like they've been cut in half, make great shrines.

I found these at Dollar Tree. The frame had a little anchor on the bottom corner. (I already pried that little baby off with a screw driver).

I sanded it, painted it black, embossed some tin and then glued it on. Decorate the photo insert (here I used Crafty Chica loteria cards) or just insert a photo and your done!

This next one is a boat frame I found at Hobby Lobby for about $6. It's pretty big and it even has a drawer!

I just painted it and then added my shrine fixins'.

Don't you just love Day of the Dead!!!
