Hi friends! I'm back today with another DIY art project (between my rustic wooden sign, my painters tape abstract art and my gallery wall, I'm all over the DIY art world lately, aren't I?!).
I actually made this little gal a few weeks ago, but forgot to share here on the old blog! I was looking for something to add to the gallery wall in my office. I've made the office whimsical and colorful (think: stripes and paper mache deer head), so I knew that had to be the direction with this piece as well. And inexpensive of course... you know I like to keep it el-cheapo around the Ten June house!
Ta-da. I made a little DIY nailhead trim art. Want to make one yourself? Here's how.
-heavy stock scrapbook paper or gift wrap
1. Wrap the canvas with the scrapbook paper or gift wrap as if you were wrapping a birthday gift, taping or stapling the paper in place on the back of the canvas. Crease the corners for a crisper look.
2. After measuring an outline onto the paper with a measuring tape and pencil, hammer the nailhead trim into place around the canvas. It’s much easier once you have penciled in a pattern to follow.
And that’s it, folks! Two simple steps. You could even create basic patterns with the nailhead trim across the canvas, such as a chevron or diamond pattern. This wall art is personalized, looks custom and will cost you less than $20 per piece.
And now this little gal is looking fabulous in my office, dontcha think?
