Make it Friday: Never Enough Art


This is not the first time I’ve featured DIY art projects here on the bloggy, nor will it be the last. Because you can really never have enough art.

Unless maybe you live in the MoMA. In which case you probably really love art, so nevermind.

Trust the team over at A Beautiful Mess to wow us with every post. This easy floral embellished photo is where it’s at. They even published another fun photo art project this week: shrinky-dink photo magnets. I die.

Rachel of The Crafted Life needs no introduction with her instantly recognizable and totally awesome manicured hand shots. Here she shows us how to jazz up a plain frame with ribbon. Add a favorite print or hang it on its own, so cute either way!

Geometric animals are the new black. Liz over at Love Grows Wild is rocking the trend with her geometric stitched elephant.

For those of you who actually print personal photos (go you!), try turning them into an art installation, like this constellation photo display by Vanilla Craft Blog. Adorbs.

You have to click through to the original post for this paper wall art piece by Sugar & Cloth. It’s AMAZING. Don’t be intimidated by the awesome, it’s very easy to do and Ashley breaks it down beautifully.


Ok I held out this long but now i just have to say it: it’s September. What.

What are you up to this weekend? I’m trying desperately to make headway on my last living room project, but the humidity is killing drying times. We had a delightfully dry and pleasant August so I shouldn’t really complain, but honestly—WHY is it so humid now that I need to stain wood?

    Need to say the elephant is my favourite?
