This West Elm knock-off home décor is perfect for your next bedroom decorating idea. Inspired by the theme, “wild and free” for a boy’s bedroom, you’re going to love having this DIY bedroom décor in your home. Grab the free SVG file for the Cricut using the knife blade, or learn how you can make this by hand for less than $5 a frame.
DIY Wild & Free West Elm Knock Off Home Decor
The first thing you want to do is make a 3-D frame ( you can grab the instructions on how to make them right HERE). You can easily make each frame for under $5/frame. I'll show you how to make the frame and save money in the process.
Once your three frames are made, you’ll want to foil two matboards measuring 12-inches by 13-inches. The first foil will be for the elk and the second for the antelope.
Cut out by hand two wildlife designs using an x-acto knife and box cutter (such as an elk or an antelope). You can also have your Cricut cut the elk and then the antelope as well.
Once both pieces are cut, you’ll want to use your krazy glue and add strips of matboard to the back of your animals. These strips are included when you cut out the frame, or you can cut them to be 20mm tall and the length as you need.
Allow the glue to dry before applying them inside your 3-D picture frame.
Next, you’ll want to cut out the “Wild and Free” arrow vinyl. Be sure to use transfer tape for a fresh and clean look on your matboard. The transfer tape I used saved my sanity when doing this project and make everything go so much smoother, quicker, and easier.
Once this step is complete and your frames are dry you’ll be able to hang them up in your boy’s bedroom and enjoy your new home decor!
