Guest Room Wall Art

Hello there and a happy Monday to you!

Remember my guest room from many posts ago? The one I painted blue,

sewed curtains for,

and added my garden stool to?

Yes. That one. It’s the only guest room in my house…so it’s pretty easy to keep track of which guest room I’m talking about. {teehee}

I’ve needed some wall art in there for a while now, but it just hasn’t happened. Until one Saturday my hubby was working on our church’s website and my little girl was having a grand old time playing by herself, so I set to work creating some wall art.

First off, it’s important to start with a clean work surface:

See that you follow my example. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Remember this gallery wall I did in my first house?

Well, I had already decided I didn’t want to do the same exact thing with those frames in my new house, so…I took 3 of them and decided to use them in my guest room. Here’s what I made:

And here’s how I did it:

First, I measured the openings in my frames to see how much of the background material I needed (by the way, do you like that material? I used it in another project for the bed).

And then measured and cut the material:

no need for the edges to be exact. Just be sure to leave a little extra (approx. 1/2″) on the edges so your material covers the entire background.

Then I cut the material for my flowers:

I made the big flower about 25 inches long, but how long you cut it depends on how big you want your flowers to be. {Check out this post for a full tutorial on makingย the flowers.}

Then just hot glue the flowers on your background material and place in the frames.

I left the glass out of the frames because I liked the 3D look a lot better than them being all smooshed up against the glass.

And that’s it! Here are a couple more pics:

I like how the flower tiebacks stand out a little more with the wall art. Loveliness.

The yellow chevron material was leftover from another project, the white “flower” material was the remnant from my tiebacks, and the frames I stole from my former gallery wall…so all this project took was a bit of time, some hot glue, and a few slightly burnt fingers.

See? Nothing much.

And you can eliminate the burnt fingers part of the equation by doing things a little more carefully! Check out the full before & after reveal of my guest room right here!

Until next time…

    Love it!! Very cute! Looks great – off a designer show or something ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I love series of 3 things. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was hoping to have leftover of my dining room curtains material to make some sort of wall hanging (and I probably would if I would have cut them short instead of having 4″ hems – whoops!) but no leftovers. ๐Ÿ™

    Might have to find some other sort of material to do it with although I am running out of wall space in their anyways so maybe I don’t need it.
