Simple Crafts for Paw Print Art

4 Materials
As I sit and stare at this blank wall in my family room, my mind starts overflowing with ideas ; a Simple Crafts project is what I need. What to do?? Refurbish an outdated frame, make my own artwork with thumbtacks, Add burlap to a frame and add a key, I found an old framed print and need to add it somewhere.. Lots of ideas, but first let’s look at my first attempt for paw print art.
Directions for my Simple Crafts Paw Print Art

1. Use a piece of scrap board left over from my Cornice Box (see directions here)

2. Stain Wood
3. Make decision of what to do

4. Outline what you want it to look like.

5. Paint Letters

6. Add Thumbtacks
This gave me my inspiration.
7. Add Command Strips to the back to hang on wall

I loved working on this project… actually, I think I say that about all my projects. Making some simple crafts for my family room wall gave it a more homey feel. I chalked painted some frames, cut wood using a miter saw(that’s a whole other story), used frames I had taken down from another wall and was going to sell at a garage sale…(reuse and recycle baby!!) and just fell in love all over again with my home.

Thanks for visiting, until next time.
