How To Create Inexpensive Wall Art with Scrapbook Paper

Spring is a time filled with graduations, baby showers, and weddings.  It's also the time we start getting out the buckets and pails and doing that big thing called "spring cleaning".   I don't know about you, but sometimes, I like to change my home decor around just a bit when I'm cleaning for the new spring season.

Stacy from Life's Sweeter with Chocolate has this fabulous idea on how to spruce up your home decor with some inexpensive wall art she created with scrapbook paper and photo frames.

I did this a few years ago, using some water color painting by my oldest daughter when she was in first grade.  You can check out the article here on ehow to see how I did it.

In the mean time, these simple framed pieces of artwork also make a great gift for bridal showers, weddings, graduations, and even baby showers.

Here's how you can make you're own Inexpensive Wall Art with Scrapbook paper.

You'll need.

Scrapbook paper
Photo Frame
paper cutter
Photo Mat


1. Cut scrapbook paper to fit size of photo frame.
2. Place down photo mat, then scrapbook paper, inside photo frame.
3. Place back on photo frame, then hang.

I'm thinking of doing this a gift for an upcoming wedding.  I'll show you mine if you show me yours.  Send them to me mrschadt (at) mrschadt.com and I'll post a few of them here on the blog.  Can't wait to see them!
