Hello! I'm Allison Kaye from Crafted Love! I'm a twenty-something design student who is living life the only way I know how... crafty. I'm dropping by to guest post while cb is off having fun on her Disney cruise and I hear the theme this week is happy. Well I can't think of anything that makes me more happy than saving money and having a pretty home so I'm going to show you a super easy way to spruce up your home with things you probably already have sitting around your house! Here's what you'll need...
1. two frames, different sizes 2. two brown paper bags
3. acrylic paint 4. brushes 5. scissors
Cut the brown paper bags apart by cutting out the bottom and making a straight cut down one side
Use the backing of the frames to trace out the size paper you need. Make sure to not use a piece that has a seem or you'll see it in the end product
Iron the paper on a low setting just to get the big creases out and get it to lay flat
Pick about four different colors and paint different sized rectangles on the two pieces of paper
Let them dry for a few hours
Put them in the frames, place somewhere in your house and admire!
