I have been feeling like my walls are a bit bare in most of my house. I take a lot of pictures and many of them make it on to the walls, but I wanted more than just photographs everywhere. So when I was at the dollar store last week looking for something completely unrelated, I found some cute tote bags. I thought they would be super cute hanging on my wall, so I scooted over to the frame section and grabbed some cheapo frames for them. It seems to always work this way for me at the dollar store. I go in there looking for one thing that I think they’ll for sure carry, they don’t have it and I leave with some bit of crafty stuff that suddenly struck me. So when I got home, I cut out the pictures on the tote bags, framed them and hung them up. Here is what I ended up with for my $8.00 craft…..
A few days later, I was looking at some printables I found on Pinterest and decided that I needed a few simply silly things to hang on my walls. I had a document size frame sitting in my closet, so I printed off the first one as just a regular 8.5″x11″.
I like that my son already knows this is a joke and not a free pass to be a slacker! Here is the link if you’d like to print one of these for yourself.
And finally, I made one more funny thing to put up in my kitchen. It makes me laugh while I do my dishes. And it makes me suddenly want a cocktail!
Here is the link for this one as well. There are bunch of cute free printables on that link, so be sure to check them out. I made this little wall hanging by printing out the graphic, cutting it out and gluing it to a piece of scrapbook paper I had in my stash. I hung it by adding grommets to the top and securing a ribbon through them. I love grommets when paper crafting. They are cheap, because you can buy a zillion of them for a few bucks and they quickly add such a finished element to your projects.
Check out this link as well for more fun and FREE printables. I think this is where I originally stumbled across both of the ones I used for my walls.
