Craft Room Wall Art

When I spied these frames on a clearance end cap at Target,
a flash of crafty inspiration overcame me.

I proceeded to purchase twenty 5x7's.
At 96¢ a pop, I didn't feel too guilty.
Twenty dollars seemed a reasonable price to pay
for a major pop of personality in my crafty space.


Filling each frame was a lot of fun.
Fabric scraps were all that I needed to complete the design.

I love that once completed (and hung tightly together),
it was reminiscent of a quilt - perfect for a craft space!


Working on this project brought to light my
very predictable fabric buying habits.
It was obvious that I gravitate towards bold, bright prints.
Also, I prefer large florals and am definitely drawn to blues, pinks, and greens.

The great thing about this is that as my mood changes,
I can simply switch out the fabric for more a more current look!



My craft room is nearly complete.
You've seen a peek.
Come back next week for more photos!

Have a fantastic spring weekend!

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! (I know, I keep saying that with regard to your crafts, but if the shoe fits I am afraid you have to wear it, my friend!). I am stealing this idea - thank you!!

Beautiful idea! I love the color of the frames.

What a fabulous idea!

Mary said...

L.O.V.E. this! Ok, so the ODC efficiency expert in me is trying to figure out how to fasten them so they hang uniformly yet remain flexible to change out.... You didn't hang these individually did you?!

Jessica Shaw said...

Next time I see frames on clearance I won't hesitate to buy them, because now I know what I can do with them. GREAT idea!

Casey said...

That is the best idea! I have a few pretty bare walls and this would be perfect for those odd spaces that need a bit of pop. Love the fabrics and I love that it does look like a big quilt on the wall. YAY
