Easy DIY Wall Decor

I haven't "crafted" in several days, which in turn has made me a very unhappy Mrs. Finesse Your Nest.  So, what to do, what to do?

I put together some really QUICK, really EASY DIY Wall Decor for my master bedroom.  Remember the "Art" I made last week?


 

I was so pleased with how it turned out.  The frames were $4 a piece on sale at Michael's & the scrapbook paper came in a big pad marked down to $11.99.  I still had tons of it left over, so I made this...





Want a closer look?




I had a bunch of mismatched frames that I spray painted white, when I had my super duper crazy from the fumes spray paint party a few weeks ago.

I just cut my scrapbook paper to fit the opening, removed the glass and voila!  Instant art!




Went a little crazy with this one.  It's a frame hot glued to another frame.  The little matching tags came with the scrapbook paper so I penned a little "W" (our last name initial) in orange sharpie.  This may be a craft gone bad.  We'll see if it grows on me!

I also made some burlap pieces after I was inspired by this...






I found some really cute binder clips at Michael's in the Dollar section (I love the dollar bins at Michael's!  So many treasures!) and I made my own version!


That's me and the little peeps. It's a REALLY outdated pic, but haven't printed anything lately so I just stuck something in there for now!

You are way too complimentary, Kendall! But let me say that your framed scrapbook photos are genius. I'm scouting out a place where I can do the exact same thing.

And I love the Goodwill frames!! Yet another project I want to try out too. Your family is beautiful, by the way. :)

Meg, you are so humble, and I love that about you! The scrapbook frames are SO EASY and SO CHEAP! Post pics when you do yours!

Love the frames. I wonder if I could do this on my large open wall in the guest bedroom! It needs work, it's so bare!

Sounds like you are having a craving for crafting! If you are like me, and I think you are, then you're always busy with projects.

Your framed artwork looks superdelish. And I love the framed photos.

I love the white frame projects you did! Very cool! And about your artwork above your bed...I was in Michael's on Sunday. I asked an associate where I could find the scrapbooking frames (I was going to steal your idea). So she shows me one style and they are 9.99. I asked, "aren't these on sale? Kendall only paid four buxx for hers!!!". (okay, so I left the part about you out). But no, they wern't on sale. I bought only one with a coupon so it was only about $6, but it's also not as neat as yours. I'm bummed, but I'll use it.
