We’re finally getting settled and making our new house a home after our huge international move from Berlin to Toronto which has meant loads of upcycling, refashioning and thrifting to try and replace and recreate the decor items we unfortunately had to leave behind.
Thankfully I had the most precious pieces of my refashionista stash shipped over including my hoard of vintage hankies and gorgeous kimono fabric scraps so I’ve been able to make some truly awesome artwork that’s chock full of lovely memories too!
Grab an old frame, have a peek through your scrappy stash and create your own gorgeous DIY decor with my latest Refashioning 101: Easy Upcycled Scrap Art!
This is a fab kid-friendly project that uses items you may already have in the house: an old frame, fabric scraps and a glue stick are all you need!
Remove the paper/cardboard insert from the frame (or create one if it is missing) then cut your focal point scrap to size and glue it in place.
Working outward from your focal point, continue cutting and sticking coordinating scraps wherever you desire!
Once you’re happy with your scrap covered paper go ahead and pop it back into the frame!
Seriously stunning and totally unique artwork that’s ready to adorn your walls!
Mine lives in our freshly renovated bathroom along with mementos of my time spent living in Tokyo.
Here’s an even easier bit of thrifty upcycled artwork created from a couple of my vintage hankies:
If you’ve got a collection of vintage hankies and a boring flannel shirt, go ahead and combine them with my quick and simple tute:
