DIY- Artwork (the easy way)

I wish I could paint beautifully. Unfortunately, that is a talent that I have not been blessed with. So I have to be a little creative, when creating artwork for our house.

DIY projects can be fun and also adds a personal touch. When getting the nursery ready for my second child, I found in a thrift store a lovely wooden frame and a Winnie the Pooh puzzle.  My daughter put the 20 piece puzzle together very quickly and I glued the puzzle over the picture that came with the frame.

Now 6 years later, my son has outgrown Winnie the Pooh and likes Star Wars and Superheroes. He felt that it was time for a change.

As the puzzle was stuck firmly in place, I just stuck on a black piece of thick cardstock over the puzzle. Using a glue gun,  I lightly glued a piece of canvas that my son had painted at a recent birthday party on to the black cardstock. The canvas is on sturdily enough, but will be easy to remove, if we want to change it up in the next little bit.

My son is really happy with his new artwork installation and it took minutes to put this new piece in place.


I would love to hear your ideas on any easy DIY artwork projects.
