  • Home Decor Idea - how to make botanical art
    I’m always creating “artwork” for the walls to decorate our home. When you diy it, you can change it with the seasons, as your children grow older or as you tire of it without guilt. DIY botanical art only requires 5 minutes, a few sheets of card stock, and double stick tape {the foam kind}.

    Find artwork you like online. These are from Graphics Fairy.  Be sure that you have permission to print. Most without copyright will disclose that they are available for your personal use.

    Insert images into Microsoft Word {or into any design program} and resize to a size lesser than your mat.  Print at best quality onto your card stock.

    If your background isn’t white, be sure to fold over on your colored edge, away from the image itself, as shown above.

    Image side down, tear.  This creates a slight bend backwards.

    Adding double stick tape raises the print off the back of the frame like high end artwork.

    You know those sheets of paper that have a photo of a couple {otherwise known as Phoebe’s dad for Friends fans} or the store name?  Keep it and flip it over. Adjust it so that it’s flush with your mat. Center the image and stick it onto the usually discarded paper.

    For the other artwork in our hearth room, I printed a variety of ferns, inspired by this Pottery Barn photo.
