    Cardboard,hot glue and Fabric

    On a recent trip to the local petsmart to buy my DD some fish I refused to pay the price they wanted for a backdrop for a 10 gal tank.The price was more than the fish themselves Geees. So I had a brainstorm this morning. Scratched around in my stash and found this piece of fabric. You guest it measured and cut a piece of cardboard glued the fabric around the perimeter and hot glued it to the back of her tank. Wa La instant backdrop for pennies.She isn't home right now but I am going to text her and tell her I bought more fish for the tank. She will freak out!!! I am so mean HEE HEE. She will love it. This is a new tank and it is all new to her so I am gonna have fun with it. Hugs

        You could change backdrops with every holiday and season!

        You're very resourceful!

              I think her fish will think they have some new 'friends'. What a neat idea!

                Great idea, I thought those were real fish till I read what someone else wrote and looked again.
                GREAT JOB !!!!
