    Blue triangle works better than other.
    Triangles are the strongest shape because any added force is evenly spread through all three sides

    I love both of these! The rocks are fun and colorful and the walnut shells give a wonderful natural feel to the frame :)
    Did you buy or find those rocks because they are perfect for crafts!
