TP Roll Wall Art

Yup, you read right, that TP=Toilet Paper!

My Mom's printing shop needed a bit of decor. So I decided to try out the infamous toilet paper roll art. It turned out pretty darn cool if you ask me! I spray painted them purple since mom has a purple stripe along the top of the walls. These are hanging just above her computer desk. Before, it looked so bare. Now, it adds a little more homey feel. 

Canvas Wall Decor

Here is another simple, fairly cheap, and easy wall decor project you can make in hundreds of different variations. All you need is a canvas, or a few, paint to change the color of the canvas, and different types of ribbon.

Click on the picture for a better view of the different types of ribbon I used.

In this case I just did simple black and white. I left one canvas white and painted the other black. I then took strips of ribbon and used double sided permanent tape to keep the ribbon on the canvas. I wrapped the ribbon around the back and taped to secure.

Hope you enjoy the easy idea!

Jordan Almond Easter Decor

Ahhhh, the ideas that pinterest gives me! Yes, I stole this concept from pinterest, however instead of making a wreath, I made Easter Trees!

Simple Kitchen Art

So easy, simple, and CHEAP {I'm all about saving money}!!  I already had the canvas and spray paint for them, all I needed were some short kitchen accessories.  Found the two small wooden spoons at a second hand store for the huge price of $0.50!!  Yup, a whole whopping 25 cents each.  I spray painted them with an ivory color.  I also spray painted the two canvases {...canvi? canvases doesn't sound right} to go with our tangerine and green kitchen {walls are tangerine, so we needed more green accents}.  After each dried, I hot glued the wooden spoons on and just leaned both against the wall behind our stove.

Little did I know that the spray paint color I already had matched almost perfectly with the Tea Pot!
We love it!

Mantle Decor

I decided to do something a little different to our mantle.  I re-spray-painted the two pillar candle holders, found an empty frame and a "B" from the thrift store {cheap, cheap cheap!!!} and spray painted them, added  DIY canvas art, rearranged some things that were already up there, and POW here it is!

Multi-Season Wreath

I finally buckled down and did it.  Well, I just needed a hardcore, solid trip to a hobby store or it would have been done a lot sooner.  I've been wanting to make a wreath like you see everywhere on Pinterest.  I'm so happy with how it came out!  It didn't take me longer than an hour to do too, which was a plus.  The colors I chose can work for Spring, Summer, or even Fall!  I placed the flowers in with pins instead of gluing them permanently.  That way I can change out flowers if I want to!  Yay me {sometimes I surprise myself with my smartness}!! :) it is!

I'm definitely planning to make more!  They're too fun.
