One of my favorite things about owning a house is being able to make it into my own. I’ve spent the last three years painting, replacing flooring, tiling, and doing all the other fun stuff that’s necessary when you own a house. I’ve just now been able to start decorating and making it feel more like home.
The only problem that I’ve run into is that a lot of home goods are expensive! Wall art is probably the biggest piece of the puzzle as far as bringing a room together. It’s just not in me to spend $50 or $60 on a piece of wall art. I try to make do with what I have and come up with creative ways to make my house look good without raiding my bank account.
This weekend I went through my fabric stash and decided I was going to use some of it to make embroidery wall hoops. I did have to go buy the embroidery hoops (they were $1.00 each).
I took the fabric, stretched it over the embroidery hoops, trimmed it in the back to go around the hoop, and glued the pieces over the edge in. It was so simple! I think they go well with the quilt, which is a handmade quilt from my aunt. The only thing is that it took me forever to get them on the wall right!
Mr. Money is undecided on whether or not he likes them. I just think they may be too girly for him. I’d love to have your opinion!
Do you like my frugal wall art?
