picture frame art. (easy diy).

Are you guys ready for the easiest DIY project to ever hit the internet?! It takes about 10 minutes to complete, doesn't require sewing or glue gunning AND I think the total cost was somewhere around $4. Seriously, easiet project ever and it turned out so cute! 

Let's get started, shall we? 
Supplies

I went to Target home of identity theft, and purchased two of their cutest gift bags in different sizes. 

I grabbed two white ikea frames not being used in my house, but if you need to buy them, they are cheap. 

& a pair of scissors. 

Yes, that's all you need. 


Next, I cut the 'front' of the bags off so I was only working with one layer of paper. It was a rough cut, no measuring or really thinking about it. Just make sure it's bigger that your frame. 


I took the piece of the bag that I just cut and laid it upside down. I took the back of the picture frame and placed in on the top of the bag and cut around it. Again, it was a rough cut. No measuring or straight lines. Just make sure to not make your cut smaller than the frame this time.



Once it's cut, fit the designed side of the bag on the glass piece of the frame. You may have to trim it up some to make sure it lays flat. Place the back on the frame and secure it. 

& there you have it! Told you it was the easiest ;)

 


I also tackled my tissue paper tassel garland last night and love the way it turned out. I used this tutorial from Pillow Thought

It's not perfect & it doesn't look as good as the ones you can buy from Etsy but those are $40 and this one cost me $6. And I made it myself!! ;) we hung it in our bedroom last night just to 'store' it, but it's permanent home will be in Abigail's room. 
 
I'm also planning out the colors for my next one to go in our guest bedroom! 



Happy Thursday, friends! It's almost the weekbeerend!

    1. I actually picked it up at the after Christmas clearance sale at Target. It is a stocking ornament, so you may not be able to find it anymore. I would check online though! :)
