Hi Guys! I recently started a bigger house project, I plan on giving the upstairs a little face lift! I have been peeling wallpaper (it’s done!) and soon I will be on to priming and painting the upstairs hallway, I have a goal of installing and making a barn door and changing out some light fixtures. I will be sure to include you guys in on my progress. So while I am devoting more time to this bigger project I plan on sharing a few simple projects for the next few weeks on the blog. This is a thrifty ten minute wall art idea. I had this old frame and cheesy print hanging around the house for too long. I needed a little something for my dining room wall. I wasn’t looking to spend any money since sometimes wall art can get a little pricey. I wanted something simple and this was REALLY simple. For me, this was a no cost project because I had all of the goodies hanging around already. Here goes….
I removed the old print from the frame by prying the staples up. I cut the piece of burlap to fit the print with about an inch over hang. I used Mod Podge to glue the burlap down to the backside of the print. I didn’t want any color showing through the burlap from the print. Then I returned the picture to the frame, and pried the staples back down to secure. This time with the burlap glued on like this….
I made my own heart stencil but you can find plenty for free off the internet. I centered it on the burlap and traced the heart with a pencil. I then dipped my foam brush in a little latex paint and gently dabbed the paint to fill my heart in, and that’s it!
I hung a little glittered hello cut out sign above it. I found this in the clearance section at the Hobby Lobby for 3 dollars…simple and cute, right?!
It came out so cute that I decided to make another one for my downstairs bathroom. These two little chubby love birds called out to me…I loved it. I found the stencil pattern here. Thank you boredart.com ♥
Okie Dokie! Have fun making this one! I just love a simple, quick project that costs me nothing to make. I hope you have a happy week. Please remember to like me on Facebook to keep up with all my latest projects!
