Bathing Beauties--$3 Collage Wall Hanging--

Our dogs love the water.  They would let us bathe them every day if we would do it for them!  I was playing with Brett's new camera and took some pics of them while they were enjoying their shower the other day.  After I took them all I thought it would be cute to hang them in the bathroom.  I made a collage online at SAMs and picked it up in the store less than an hour later!  It is a 12x16 print and it was only $2.96+tax!



Here is the print.
I was going to get a canvas and mod podge it on, but didn't want to get back out of the house so I decided to try using cardboard.

We had this big box so I cut out a piece just a little bit smaller than the photo.  I thought it would look better if it stood out from the wall a bit so I hot glued 4 pieces of foam we had from the packaging and then another smaller piece of cardboard on the back.  I then superglued a paperclip on to hang it with. 
It looks super ghetto from the back but I have it hung in a place that it cannot be seen from the side so it won't be noticed!



Then I used glue dots to put the photo on the cardboard.  
I am not sure how the photo will do in the moisture of the bathroom because it is not protected by anything but I feel like it should last a while.


Super easy and really cheap!
