Erica from Dwell Beautiful LOVES Anthropologie but very rarely can afford the prices. She has found the way to get the Anthro look for less by recreating some of their art pieces. When she saw a botanical print, Erica knew she could easily make her own version with some Sharpies and a canvas. She says, [...Read More]
Heather from Woods of Bell Trees bought a European-made mug from Home Goods that she absolutely loved but knew needed a little oomph to take it to the next level. Out came the Sharpies! Heather first lightly penciled on her design and then went over it with an oil-based Sharpie, adding details as she went. Oh, the wonders of Sharpie art!
Christine from Let’s Get Crafty really liked the “texture and simple design” of West Elm’s Decorative Bowl Art. She took a trip to her local Goodwill (where there are baskets aplenty) and snagged one for less than $2 to turn into her own piece of wall art. Christine says that the weave of her basket is a “dead ringer” for her inspiration, and all she needed was a black Sharpie to complete the transformation!
Sarah from While They Snooze takes DIY wall art to a whole new level with this plate wall she created using dollar store plates and a Sharpie. This amazing project earned Sarah a well-deserved spot in the top 3 of the Creating with the Star’s knock-off round at East Coast Creative. The secret to Sarah’s beautiful artistry is in using a projector to trace the image onto the plates. With the handy tool, there is no limit to what you draw on your plates and still get stunning results!
Honor from Home Heart Craft really takes Sharpie art to a whole new level with this project!
