So I attempted to make my own mini version in green. I also thought I would get a little fancy and do a cascade of color effect . . . FAIL!
I bought a circle punch for $10 - 40% coupon from Michaels, I punched out many, many circles, and hot glued them into place. I used the paper that came with the ikea frame to glue them on to.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "I am Seriously lacking in artistic talent". Back to the drawing board to find some inexpensive art for the powder room.
