I have found a really simple way to make artwork for your house, dorm room, nursery or office. It started with a stroll down the scrapbook isle at my local craft store. I really loved so many of the prints I found. There have also been many times I’ve been in the fabric department and wished I could design a room around some of those adorable patterns I came across. One Christmas, my new brother in law put record frames on his wish list. I had never heard of these but I went into the local craft store and checked in the collector and display frame section and found them. They were 12″ x 12″ created to display record covers as artwork. But my brain saw 12″ x 12″ and immediately started seeing all those amazing scrapbook patterns hanging in my house! The beauty is, if you find a paper you like better or decide to redecorate, just swap out the paper and you’ve got brand new art instantly! This project cost me around $6.50 to make.
- The 12″ x 12″ frames are $10 but Hobby Lobby and Michael’s always have 40 % off coupons online and they often put the frames on sale for 50% meaning you never have to pay over $6 for the frames.
- 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper or fabric cut to 12″ x 12″.
- A screwdriver (to help you get the back of the frame off).
1) Remove the back of the frame by bending back the black barbs with a screwdriver. I don’t recommend using your fingers for this.
3) Put the back of frame back on & turn over. Then hang it where you want it. In my apartment days, I used to hang everything up with bulletin board push pins!
