DIY Eiffel Tower Ombre' Wall Art

If you are looking to customize some artwork for a room makeover, look no further than scrap wood, chalk paint and an inexpensive vinyl decal. This DIY Eiffel Tower Ombre' Wall Art is one of my favorites, that I made for our neighbors teen daughter's room makeover.

When cleaning out my craft room, I found two rolls of vinyl decals that had been purchased somewhere for $1.99 each and since they hadn't been used yet, I decided to turn them into customized wall art for Victoria. Her room is done in black and white with pops of teal, so I pulled three colors of chalk paint from my stash, cut some sponge pieces and found this perfectly sized piece of scrap wood in the garage.

I started with the lighter color first and daubed away...Going back over sections that needed more paint and then carefully marrying them together where they met. Once it was completely dry, I cut out the Eiffel Tower decal and placed in on the ombre' background. Make sure you have a clean cotton cloth handy to press out any air bubbles. Then a coat of polycrylic to seal everything together and help prevent the decal from coming off in the future.

Victoria was so thrilled with this one, she requested I paint a large wooden V the same way, I'll post that project once it's complete.

Friday Favorites - Week 337

Welcome Friday, cooler weather, changing leaves and pumpkin spice everything! I have yet to decorate our home for fall, trying to hold out till at least mid month and a bit of sweater weather to arrive here in Virginia. Until then, I'm swooning over every fall themed aisle at Home Goods, Target & Michael's...and enjoying all the fun fall photos on Instagram and Pinterest. 
Welcome to this week's Friday Favorites Linky Party!!

Back to School Printable Tag

School has started for us on the East Coast and this week has been absolutely AMAZING!! 
All three of my kiddos came home on the first day, excited, smiling, raving about their teachers, new friends and were happily exhausted.

With our oldest starting middle school this year, we have a few more teachers to include in our gift giving but alas have no fear, this project didn't break the bank. I found packs of animal printed notepads at the Dollar Store (4 for $1) and a pack of click pens (8 for $1). I already had paper and plenty of bakers twine, so I just needed a tag to complete my idea.

I took this photo of hippos when we were at Disneyland in December, uploaded it to picmonkey and added the phrase "Have a WILD School Year!!".  Backed each tag with a square of cardstock, punched a hole in each one and tied onto the notebooks with bakers twine, then   adding the pens. My kids wrote their names on the backs and toted them off for the first day of school.

I want to emphasize that you don't have to spend a ton to create something that is thoughtful or useful. If you keep your eyes out for bargains and use your free creativity, you are sure to come up with something wild that will put a smile on someone's face. These would also be great as a class gift for students, if you find a pack of animal print pencils or pens and want to jazz them up a bit with a gift tag.
