Well, the folks who were going to come see our home last night never showed up. But it’s totally okay because we got our rears in gear and completed our little to-do list to get our home market-ready. And today? Well, I’ll be buying a “For Sale By Owner” sign and firmly placing it into the ground in front of our house. Then it’s just a wait-and-see-what-happens game. Yay!
Anyway, with all of our little updates our oldest son’s bedroom got a little makeover. He needed some artwork for the wall, so I came up with this simple, inexpensive solution.
DIY Art in Five Minutes & Under $2.00
First we’ll talk about the large piece…I bought the rectangular frame for 50 cents at a garage sale…to create this look I simple wrapped turquoise yarn around the frame. Simple & frugal…such a great combination!
For these two pieces I used Dollar Tree frames, doilies (33 doilies for $1 at Dollar Tree), jute and scrapbook stickers.
1) Attach jute to the back of the frame using a staple gun.
2) Take 1 doily and add a scrapbook sticker to the center of it.
3) Place doily art in frame with matte.
4) Hang & enjoy!
I really like the contrast of the rough jute with the softness of the doily. And the “Surf’s Up” and “Nice Wave” stickers? Well, they’re just smile-bringer-outers. I heart them very much!
And there you have it, DIY art in five minutes & under $2. Now go create something that makes your heart smile.
