Easy Animal Canvas Wall Art

diy-animal-canvas-art.jpg

Megan from Our Pinteresting Family wanted to fill a small space in her baby’s nursery and found some adorable animal prints from Land of Nod that she loved. Instead of spending $100 for the set of four, Megan created her own for $8 TOTAL! She simply used Mod Podge to adhere scrapbook paper to her canvases and then animal silhouettes she cut with her Silhouette. The whole project took only 20 minutes with some drying time in between!

Decoupage a Box for an Instant Update!

Erika from Retropolitan purchased a few sheets of marbled paper online and used it to recover an old wooden box she had picked up at the thrift store for a couple dollars. She says, “It was a fairly easy decoupage project that took about a half hour to do. I think it turned out pretty great for only $3 and a few minutes of my time.” After making over her box, Erika just so happened to notice that West Elm sells an agate box that looks crazy similar for $49 to $79!

Show Your State Pride with Map Wall Art

PB-inspired-Map-Triptych-DIY-

If you missed the State Pride Tour that I hosted over at Infarrantly Creative last week, then you missed out! I partnered with 30 other bloggers to create projects in honor of the states we love and call home. Roeshel of DIY Show Off was one of the talented gals who joined me on the tour, creating a map triptych from a Pennsylvania road map. Not only did Roeshel save herself $100, but her maps are much more meaningful since they reflect where she was born and raised.

Paint Can to Patterned Storage Pail

As soon as she saw Pottery Barn Kids’ paper-wrapped bucket, Anna from My Life and Kids knew she could make her own. Anna used new paint cans from the hardware store and simply wrapped them with patterned scrapbook paper using Mod Podge. These are great for toy storage or used as “gift bags” as Anna did for a friend’s baby shower.

DIY Decoupage Bird Art

Yellow Bird by Tom Judd

Honor from Home Heart Craft loves all of Anthropologie’s pretties but often finds herself gawking at their crazy prices. Like over a thousand dollars for a 10” by 10” piece of artwork… how’s that for crazy?!? Honor decided to create her own original artwork using tracing paper, Mod Podge, and a frame. Honor’s little trick of using the tracing paper makes it look like the birdie was painted right onto the old atlas pages.

Newspaper Print Dress

Amy from Mod Podge Rocks used a little color to mimic a newspaper print dress found in the Ballard Designs catalog.  I love the paper she chose! It reminds me of a vintage dress worn in the 50s.

Sheet Music Wall Art

Amy of Amy’s Casablanca was immediately drawn to a piece of musical artwork she saw floating around Pinterest. When she finally found the source and saw the hefty $2000 price tag, it just motivated Amy to find a way to do it herself. With the help of the Staples copy lady, Amy created her own humongous 36”x48” piece of artwork that looks very similar to her inspiration and is a custom fit for her hallway.

Floral Lion Wall Art

Merrill from Girl of a Thousand Dreams could hardly pass on wall art that featured two of her favorite things – big cats and florals. It may sound like an odd combination, but the two come together beautifully in this simple knock off that utilizes fabric, a black and white image, and a plain canvas. Whether it’s big cats and florals or butterflies and polka dots, Merrill points out that the basic design could easily be customized to suit any fancy.
