And here's my last idea of the day for making cheap and easy wall art. With this project, you can make a wall hanging for adults or children. I purchased a cute white, horizontal collage frame at Jo-Ann Fabric (most of my stories begin there), but wasn't sure about what to put in it. Not long after, I was in Trader Joe's (aka, heaven on earth), perusing their greeting cards. They have beautiful, artsy cards for $1.00 each. Several of them had a Hawaiian, beachy feel, so I picked out my five favorites and put them in the collage frame.
Here's the end result....
The "Tropical Retreat" sign underneath was an impulse purchase at a local Hallmark. At first I loved it, but I've been looking at it lately with a very critical eye. I think that our time together may be drawing to a close. We'll see!!!
Anyway, you could do this project with any kind of collage frame and any kind of "art", i.e. postcards, greeting cards, advertisements, etc. Let me know what you come up with!
