From a quick look around my house you can see how much I love owls, so I was excited to see this vintage owl print - all ready to print off and frame! Trying to think of a gift for someone this Christmas? Check out The Graphics Fairy for more free vintage prints!
A Beautiful Mess recently posted a great tutorial on how to set up a gallery wall, and one print that caught my eye (and everyone else apparently!) was this awesome ‘I Love Boring Things’ quote by Andy Warhol. ABM has kindly shared this print, so skip on over to download!
I used to love painting, but these days I’m finding it harder to just create something from nothing. That’s why I love these inspiring DIYs. Though this piece is simple, it has a big impact, and you can choose whatever colours you want for your ‘pebbles’.
My team at work always put a quote up on our wall to look at to inspire us. Sometimes when you’re feeling down and you’ve taken yet another call from someone upset you need a bit of a pick me up. I just love this quote and the colour too. Perfect.
What a cool way of displaying art! And though they look complicated, they’re actually quite easy to make. I love the hand written words used in this display, but how cool would these be with black and white photos?
I know this DIY will divide my readers - some of you will love it, some of you will be majorly freaked out by the masks! But for those of you who love it like I do, click through to get the directions. Check out etsy or eBay for masks - of course, they don’t have to be animal ones - to decorate with!
No matter what you call them - hama beads, ironing beads or perler beads, these boards are incredibly fun. Not just for kids, you can make your patterns and create your own art. I adore the bottom patterns - very Cath Kidston - and I think they’d make great coasters. Look for the beads in the kids section of your craft store, and make sure to pick up a pegboard too!
I’ve been busy putting together lots of projects and inspiration for my Wedding Week and thought these hand carved stamps would be perfect for making your own little monogram for your invites, to stamp on your napkins, on top of your menus, etc. But I couldn’t wait to share it so here it is now! You could also use it to make your own stationery. And as I’ve said before - carving is so addictive, you’ll be making these for friends, family and strangers on the street!
