Super Easy Wall Art Tutorial



I created a wall art focal point for the nursery to go just over the crib. It was super easy to make and thought I'd share how to do this.

First, get several frames of different sizes. You could either make them all be similar around the edges, or put together a bunch of different styles and shapes. Whatever you want.

Next, find some images that work well together. The ones I used can be downloaded here:

Make sure the images look good in silhouette and are not too complicated in shape. Make sure the sizes will be completely visible once the frame has been placed around it. I found that an 8.5 x 11 inch frame had a slight border around it so that my shape had to be no bigger than 8 x 10.5 to be totally visible.

Next, print out your images on regular printer paper. Attach the printed image with a tiny bit of repositionable glue to plain white cardstock. Make sure the glue is not permanent and will not stain the cardstock. Then carefully cut around the edges to create your silhouette.

Next, cut colored cardstock to size, attach the white image with permanent adhesive to the center of the cardstock, and place it in the frame.

Finally, hang up your wall art and enjoy.

Simple and easy.
