To Find cheap wall art from a Dollar tree
Take a “extra” a work of art from Dollar Tree and transform it in cheap wall art! No one will ever know, it was almost free to make. A while back I have the worst wall art got from the dollar store. I wasn’t quite sure what to do I was going, so I kept them in a drawer for a while. Then I realized it was time to get busy and make some.So I came up with this quick-and-dirty-cheap-wall-art. Dimensional Magic is the secret ingredient for making this very special, as you can see from the Shine on the image.If you are looking for a fun-budget-craft, this is for you. Here’s how I did it.DIY cheap wall artCollect These SuppliesDollar store frame with cardboard backing (otherwise known as “special wall art”)Mod hodgepodge MatteMod hodgepodge Dimensional magic spray paint, scrapbook paper – a plurality of blades, colors and patterns of your choice craft gluePaintbrushScissorsDie cutter or some way the floral shapes Before you get started, you should remove the “art” from the back of the frame. You might have to cut it, depending on how the art is glued into the frame – if you need to cut, that's fine, just do it carefully. Aside the art, and spray paint the frame the color of your choice. Allow it to dry. Next you’re a piece of scrapbook paper and Mod smorgasbord to select, to the frame backer – also known as the “art.” As you can see, I have a medium layer of Mod-hodgepodge at the bottom of the front of the art. I then smoothed the paper down on the tip and let them dry. Trim to fit the edges with scissors or a cutter knife. While the supporter is dried, use a Sizzix Big Shot or other die-cutter to create your flowers. I have several small scraps of paper in different colors.If you don’t have a punch, you can always use clip art for your shapes and cut them to the flowers.The stamp I used was only for the flowers themselves. I cut the flower pot, stem and leaves by hand and just eyeballed it. Mod mishmash of all the flowers, including the stems and leaves, on the backer paper. Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes and then add to the pot. The whole thing with a layer of Mod collection and then let it dry again. Add the Dimensional magic on the top of each flower. Work quickly and carefully. Let this dry for 24 hours, but NOT under a fan. Dry Dimensional Magic under a cooling fan, causing it to crack. Add craft glue to glue the finished frame in the soft paper. you Keep back up until it’s is dry enough all the way around. Let it dry for 24 hours and then hang. What a pretty little picture, don’t you think? How fun (and cheaper) would be to do a series of these, with slightly different designs? Next time.
Until then, I’m happy with my simple and fast wall art. The three-Dimensional magic adds just the right “kapow” to my cheap wall art, I needed to make it really stand out!you Want some additional wall art ideas? We’ve got a ton on the blog!
