Home Decor Project

I am so excited to have the opportunity to be the guest blogger today!  I am going to share a quick and easy home decor project that can be made with things that you already have and you just might use up some scraps in the process. I saw the idea for this here and thought that it was really cute, and decided to make one of my own.

Here is what you will need:

  • a frame – I am using a 12×12 frame that I found on sale at Michaels
  • 1 sheet of cardstock for the base
  • scraps of patterned paper
  • a 2 inch square (or shape of your choice) punch, die cut machine, or your paper trimmer
  • embellishments
  • small photos

Here is how I made mine.

First, I took all of my photos and paper scraps that I was going to use and cut them into 2 inch squares. I chose to cut mine into squares, however,  you could use circles, hexagons, or any other shape that you like. After I got all of the pieces cut,  I used my charcoal chalk ink to distress the edges of my papers. Then I arranged all of the papers and photos in a grid on my background. This took a little time for me to get it just the way I wanted – lots of rearranging!

When I had it the way I wanted, I adhered it to the background cardstock. I embellished some of the squares and left some blank. How much you want to embellish is totally up to you.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope that this inspires you to use up some of those scraps on a home decor project!
