A couple of years ago, when Rose Knows Coupons was quite new, I shared with you how to easily make scrapbook paper wall art by simply hanging square 12x12 frames with your choice of scrapbook paper inserted into the frames. This simple idea is quite affordable when you have a larger space to cover.
Since we first hung the scrapbook paper wall art on our wall, we have replaced our furniture. I was easily able to change out the scrapbook paper that had matched our old furniture with new paper that coordinated better. I did this for just a few dollars.
I love decorating for the holidays. I don't need every little corner of my house to look like we are living with Santa at the North Pole, but I do like to change out a few things here and there where I can. As much as I love my blues and beiges during the year, it just wasn't doing it for me for the holidays.
With just a few supplies, I was able to give this wall a festive look for under $20. The best part is that I will be able to reuse what I made for years to come!
My supply list consisted of (4) items:
- Wooden letters
- Glue Dots
- Paint brush
After the wooden letters are painted and dried, apply the Glue Dots by ripping off a section of the paper and sticking the Glue Dot to the back of the letter like you would a temporary tattoo. Apply pressure to the Glue Dot and then slowly pull back the paper taking care that the Glue Dot is staying in place. The directions on the box say to remove the Glue Dot with your fingers but I found that to be messy and not work at all. You want the Glue Dot to be smooth and flat when you apply it to the letter so the letter is flat on the paper.
This project took very little time for me and I was able to transform my wall for the holidays without putting new holes in the wall or buying pricey holiday wall hangings or pictures!
All of these items can be found at craft stores like Hobby Lobby or Michael's. If you are starting this product from the beginning, I suggest you purchase the frames when they are 40 - 50% off since that is the most expensive part. Michael's does carry a 3-pk of 12x12 frames and when on sale, they are only $9.99. Since you need 9 frames to make this square, your cost for the frames will run you $30.
