Wall Decor with Home Decor
I have been waiting for the perfect artwork to hang above my bed for a while. I have HGTV on while I scrap and blog and I have seen so many awesome ideas, but have never found exactly what I wanted from a store ~ until now!
I found 3 wall frames at Michaels 40% off and snapped them up. They are a close match to the color of my headboard and mimic the shape and size of the design. I originally wanted to put a black and white head shot of each of my boys as an infant in them, but changed my mind after looking around the rest of my house. Their beautiful faces are plastered everywhere!!
I finally got the Home Decor cricut cartridge a couple of months ago and found some twigs and vines that looked very similar to the pattern on my bedspread. So I used cardstock in colors to match the bedspread to cut these out.
I made a 8x10 rectangle on my gypsy to use as a template. On pages 2,3,&4 I added one of the branches and sized it to fit inside the template. I cut them out and put them in the frames. I hung one frame on the nail that was already centered over the bed. I wasn't sure if the picture was too high or not. I liked it more every time I saw it, so I added the others.
Let me know what you think and what Wall Decor you have made with your scrapbooking supplies!
