Today I am participating with 15 other bloggers in a DIY Wall Art Hop - so much fun and so many great and inspirational wall art ideas. I have been redoing our living and dining rooms and needed some new wall art so I am quite exited to see all the creativeness everyone brings to this hop. I am going to be busy all afternoon checking all these out.
I decided to make a gold monogram to hang on our wall in the future gallery wall I am planning. It was quite easy to do and very budget friendly as it is made from thumb tacks. I love how it turned out.
S upplies needed:
A frame you wish to use
Black foam core board (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
A pattern of the monogram you wish to use
Approximately 600 gold thumbtacks (or color of choice).
I had this old frame I picked up from a thrift store some time back and decided it was the one I wanted to use for this project.
I then centered the "C" on the foam core and traced around it to get my outline for the thumb tacks.
This picture shows the outline very faintly.
This is a picture of it hanging on the wall. It will be added to my gallery wall when I get the rest of the components for it done.
In the mean time I have it sitting on the table in the foyer. I love the gold against the black and the white of the frame. I also love how simple this is and that it makes such a great statement piece. I am thinking this would make a great gift also.
Don't forget to visit the rest of the blogs and check out all that wonderful wall art that you'll find there. The links to each project is found below.
