DIY Wall Art From A Gift Bag


This large scale wall art was inexpensive and easy to make.


It all started when I was at Ross a few weeks ago and I spotted this gift bag:


I fell in love. With a gift bag. I knew I had to buy it but I definitely didn't want to put a present in it and give it to anyone. I wanted it all to myself. So I came up with a unique way to use it... I turned it into a big sign for my craft room!

I started by cutting off the front of the bag (the side without the fold line).





The center words weren't metallic enough for me, so I used my Sharpie paint pen to trace the letters and add some bling.



Then I found some thin wood scraps in the garage, cut them down to length and attached them around the edges of the bag to form a "frame." My husband is going to cringe when he sees this. LOL.


Right as I was about to glue them down, I decided they needed a wash of color. So I mixed up half craft paint and half water and gave them a quick paint job.

It took me less than an hour from start to finish and now look at this stinkin' cute custom sign!


I tell ya, this project opened up a whole new world for me. I will never walk down the gift bag aisle the same way! I already want to make another one.
