Do It Yourself

Quick DIY – Framed Art

We moved and I’m still finding ways to decorate different places in the house. I have a yellow shelving unit that I’ve been eyeing amongst the rubble and keep debating on what will be placed on top of it.

While at work early this week, I was visiting the Children’s Museum when a sweet co-worker showed me some paper swatches they had for the kids to craft with. I instantly came up with an idea with spare picture frames I had from Dollar Tree.

DIY Framed Art Tutorial

Framed Art Materials

Materials Needed:

Picture Frames

Various Scrapbook Pages (I used a glitter page for the sparkle factor)


Pen (for tracing purposes)

Double Sided-Tape/Glue stick

  1.  Trace all pages to match the shape of whatever size picture frames that you are using with your pen. For my template, I used the glass piece of the picture frame to give me an idea of what to work with.
  2. With your patterned scrapbook pages, create your shape that you want to place in the center of your frame. Whether that design be hearts, squares, or chevrons – its up to you.
  3. Center the cut scrapbook pages on your accent page and use double sided tape (or glue stick) to secure.
  4. Place assembled pages into picture frames.

Finished Framed Art

And there you have it, a quick and easy way to add a little bit of fun flare to your home!

    These are OH-so-CUTE! Love this idea, & will be ganking it for my own in our new home. ^_^
    I can’t see glitter without thinking of you.

    Also, it’s a bit late, but I LOVE the new blog layout! Looks super clean & classy. I really like the scrolling “headliner” thing you’d got going on that cycles through the different stories — I also love how you’ve got a nice image at the head of each post. I may need to get some lessons from you! xD

      SOOOOOO easy Elise! So easy. And thank you! This is just the beginning, we are still working out a few more logistics, before I write about the big relaunch. I really appreciate your sweet feedback. Now let’s both get back to unpacking so we can see each other!

      It’s actually a mess right now, but that part of it looks great! And gluesticks aren’t too dangerous 🙂
