Guest Designer: Shay Tibbs
Hello there! I hope you’re all as excited about March as I
am and I hope you enjoy my first post as guest designer here at October
Today I want to share with you a little DIY home project. I just got a new place this past Saturday and have been in decorating mode. I thought it would be super fun to share with you.
Quick & easy with just a few supplies, a house can really be turned into a home with one of these:
a can of spray paint
a frame [any size you want!]
string or twine that goes withyour theme
a few pictures
your favorite OA line - even if it’s just bits & pieces!
For my project, I decided to use Farm Girl, and it inspired me to grab up pictures my grandmother had around the house of her childhood! What perfect papers and embellishments to add to those old black & whites she has boxes filled with!
To start, I spray painted my frame with yellow, left it for a while while it dried, and pre-cut my chicken wire. I then found some twine and decided how I wanted it to drape between my frame, simply tying it onto the chicken wire.
I really think this turned out cute and it was so easy! Now I want to make them for everyone … such a perfect gift! My grandma will be thrilled to have a frame to display these in and Farm Girl was such a great line for an around the house project!
See you next week!
