DIY Dollar Store Greeting Card Artwork
Updated: Jan 6, 2021
A few weeks ago, I finally got around to sprucing up our powder room. It's an itty bitty space that we hope to fully renovate one day but, for now, all it needed was a bit of TLC and DIY to give it a fresh, new look. This post isn't about my mini reno, though — that'll be up within the next few weeks. Today, I just want to share a quick and easy hack I used to decorate our new and improved powder room.
While looking for things to decorate the space, I came across a set of 4x6 hanging gold frames at HomeSense. I bought the frames but quickly realized it was going to be tough to find art small enough to fit in them.
While I'm sure I'll eventually find perfectly-sized prints that I love, for the time being, I'm pretty happy with the temporary solution I came up with, which was possible thanks to a trip to the dollar store!
While grabbing a few packs of tissue paper from the dollar store, I noticed a collection of greeting cards that had fun, colourful designs on them. Each card only cost fifty cents, so I picked out four and hoped they'd fit in the frames.
Here is the set of hanging frames I purchased. I love that they're gold and have a pretty, little chain for hanging.
When I got home from the dollar store, I was very happy to find my colourful greeting cards fit perfectly into the frames. I didn't have to trim them even the tiniest bit!
Within minutes, I had beautiful, colourful art ready to be displayed in the powder room. And the best part is I'm going to continue to keep an eye out for other greeting cards, so if I come across a new design that works with the space, changing out the frames will be quick and easy.
I also think it could be cool to use vintage postcards but I haven't had any luck finding designs I like. Once COVID is under control, I'll be able to head out to my favourite antique shops again, so I'm sure I'll have an easier time finding exactly what I'm looking for.
Stay tuned for a full powder room reveal in the coming weeks. I'm super happy with the result and I can't wait to show it off!
