Artwork can be so expensive, especially larger pieces…but there is always a way to get around it. You can make your own from a large piece of scrap wood, architectural salvage or GIFT BAGS! Yes, a gift bag can make the perfect piece of wall art. 😉
Have you been down the gift packaging aisle lately? There are so many beautiful bags. There’s even a good selection of one’s with gold foil (which is so popular right now).
I found this bag at Target for less than $5. It’s dimensions after I trimmed it was 16″ x 17.5″. You can’t have an 8×10 printed for that good of a price!
I used an old frame that I already had and spray painted it a pink from the flowers.
The mat from the picture frame was little too small, so I used a sheet of metallic poster board. I just cut the poster board to fit the frame, then taped the bag on top.
I love the graphic element it adds to the wall!
AND the best part is that I had everything on hand but the bag. For around $5, I was able to get a large piece of artwork for my “new” office.
The next time you are at the store, take a stroll down the gift bag aisle….you might be surprised! 🙂
