Places We Have Lived Wall Decor

Last weekend I decided I wanted to make something to fill the wall in the staircase.  I had seen online ways of displaying places you have lived or that were sentimental.  Since we have moved a bunch, I thought that would be a meaningful thing to make.  I had a pack of frames that had matting already, I went online and printed the maps for the different places we have lived and then cut them out with the same size heart.

Cheap Wall Decor for Little Boys Room

To make some cheap wall decor for my sons room- I bought a 3 Pack of canvas’ and painted them with spray paint.  I attached some pre-painted animals that you can find at any craft store in the wood crafts section.  (There are all sorts of pre-painted figures- Robots, Trucks, Princess, Ballerina, Fish etc. -so you could do this for any theme)  

Burlap Initial Wall Decor

I had a frame that the glass had broken in a move, but  I still wanted to use it for something so I built a simple wall decor by using burlap and writing on it.  I used a stencil for the initial “P”, placed it where I wanted it, and drew on the burlap with a permanent marker.  For the writing below the Initial I just typed on the computer our names and date of when we got married in the font and size I wanted and printed it out.

Shamrock Hallway Wall Decor

Shamrock Hallway Wall Decor

When we found a handful of 4 leaf clovers in our front yard, I had to make something with them especially because some of them were huge! First thing I did was press them into a book so they would dry out and flatten. I laid them out flat in a thick book and closed it for a few days.  When they were dry, I layered a couple pieces of scrap book paper using scrapbook glue and then I attached the shamrock on top. I placed each one in a frame and then arranged them in the hallway around a wall decal.

Dandelion Painted on Stained Wood

Dandelion Painted on Stained Wood

Our Master bedroom and bathroom is decorated with floral prints, and when I was looking to put something on the wall in the bathroom I decided to make a painting of a dandelion. I am not a great painter but I saw a print like this and thought it would be easy to replicate and it was.

Family Hand Wall Decor

Family Hand Wall Decor

I made this simple framed wall decor many years ago when my son was about a year old.  I used a mixture of some scrapbook paper and card stock, traced our hands and then cut out the hands and glued them on top of each other.  I used colors that would match my dinning room, but it could be used anywhere in the house.  I added my daughters hand when she was born and added a color that would still work with our dinning room.

Handmade Metal Tree and Wood Wall Decor

When we bought our house, I needed to fill a lot of walls with decor and as I started looking around online I found a metal tree on a piece of reclaimed wood that I loved but didn’t love the price!  I wasn’t about to pay 299 dollars for anything, especially to put on my wall above my couch.
