Our Frugalista isn't the biggest fan of arts and crafts because most of her attempts end up as craft fails. But she did manage to show us a few frugal wall art options for the beginner. They aren't complicated, and they turn out pretty snazzy!
I Heart Travel
- Find an old map.
- Cut out a heart shape.
- Carefully crumple up the heart and then un-crumple (for added texture).
- Secure heart with a piece of tape to the back of a shadow box.
Pops of Colour
- Invest in a big hole punch from a craft store — check the scrapbook section.
- Buy and/or reuse an old frame or piece of canvas.
- Find an old paint deck sample, or grab paint samples from a hardware store.
- Punch out samples with a hole punch.
- Secure onto matte and/or canvas with tape or a glue gun.
- Rummage through the garage or thrift store and collect some old wooden picture frames.
- Paint the frames in one colour to complement your room.
- Secure empty frames onto the wall.
- Secure a large binder clip inside the empty frame.
- Attach hand drawn art by kids and/or adults to binder clips and rotate out at your leisure.
