I have a habit of keeping a lot of my children’s painting, colorings & doodles. I actually have more pieces of colorful paper than I care to admit. And as part of another goal to bring more color to our stark walls by adding our personal art I came up with this idea of mixing the kid’s art with my crafting, a bit of artsy recycling. It was fairly simply and didn’t require many tools.
All you need are:
Scrap piece of wood
Paint or stain
Some sort of paper art
Here’s what you do:
Paint or stain your wood – set aside to dry then attach frame hanger to back
Cut your art up & arrange it in a shape of your choice – glue it to the board
Carefully hammer the thumbtacks along the border of your art
And voila… custom recycled art.
Now hang it and enjoy!
