>Winter Dollar Store Wall Art

>Am I the only one who feels a little overwhelmed with allll of the AMAZING ideas all over the blogs?! I look at them after a long day in my classroom, which was followed by a 3.5 hour grad class, and I feel so behind!

That being said, I stopped by the Dollar Store to see what inspired me (after said grad class last night!). This project was quick, easy, and cheap. Just what I need right now πŸ™‚

Here’s how you can make your own:

Buy 2 very tacky plaques (already with hangers on the back) from the Dollar Store:

UGH…do people actually buy these things and NOT cover them up?!

First, I painted the plaques with white paint that was leftover from another project. I then let them dry overnight:

Then I got home from work today, measured, taped off, and painted a stripe in the middle with one of my new favorite colors

Waited for it to dry, and then hot-glued snowflakes from the Dollar store ($1 for a pack of 3) to the middle.

And…it’s done!

Here they are hanging on my wall (I just took down 2 frames we had, so I didn’t have to put new hangers into the wall). I really like that this can be used after Christmas too!

Total Cost? Just $3 for both! As I said…perfect for my very minimal budget and time constraints πŸ™‚

Get your craft on!
