After moving into our new place this past summer, I discovered how much I enjoy home decorating. There’s just something about getting creative and putting your own little flare into a space.
In this post, I’ll be showing you my DIY of some framed bird prints that I used to spruce up our little entryway.
I've been seeing framed bird prints quite a few places recently. Some were regular prints, some sketches, some looked like paintings, some antiqued - all super cute, but also pretty pricey. If you know me, you know I always like to try to find a way to do the something I see that I love, just more affordably - so of course this calls for a little DIY.
These framed bird prints are such an easy project that I came up with. You'll breeze right through it in 4 easy steps AND you won't hurt your wallet while doing it!
Step 1: Get the supplies
1. Frames (I used these from Ikea - only $7 each!!)
2. Coloring Birds Book by Arcturus Publishing (I got mine from Barnes & Noble)
4. Hammer and Nails (plus a measuring tape if you want to be precise)
Step 2: Pick your photos
One side of the coloring birds book has pre-colored pictures of birds and the other side has one for you to color yourself. Figure out how many you are wanting to frame and then hit the book to pick your favorite pre-colored bird photos. The fun part is, if you ever get bored of the ones you framed. You can always go back to the book and change them out.
Step 3: Frame the birds
Carefully tear or cut out each page that you chose to frame. Center a page inside the border of the frame and tape it in place to keep it from sliding around when your putting the back of the frame back on. When you are done framing your desired amount of bird pictures into frames, you can move on to the final step.
Step 4: Hang them up
Grab a hammer and some nails, measure out where you want them to go on your wall, and hang those puppies right on up!
Like I said before, this project is so easy, affordable (I did them all for only around $30!) & they will look great on your wall when you are done!
If you decide to take on this DIY, feel free to share with me how yours turned out. I'd love to see your pretty prints!
