Make It Friday: Handmade Art


You know I LOVE a great piece of handmade art. Possibly because I like keeping horizontal surfaces clutter-free and art is easy to hang. But also, because it’s art and it’s awesome.

Nothing personalizes a space quite like creating your own art, and with all the inspiration and tutorials floating around in the blogosphere, you don’t have to be an artist to do so.

I love the idea of printing out some “fauxlaroids” with the tutorial by Wonder Forest. Even though I studied photography, I have ZERO personal photos on display. Weird, right?

How about you, what kind of art or photography do you collect/make/hang?

P.S. The Homies are open until FEBRUARY 22ND 5AM EST! Vote for me pretty please!

  1. What an awesome roundup of art, thank you so much for including me! I have several prints framed and ready to hang as a gallery wall, but I have yet to do it I think part of me feels that there won’t be enough and that it will look weird (silly I know). Perhaps I’ll give it a go this weekend!

  2. Ah, love the fauxlaroids too.
    I don’t have too many personal photos on display either! I think it’s because I don’t take very many photos… or the ones I already have are VERY old and VERY bad quality.
    Voted for you for the homies!! Good luck 🙂
