Instant Art!

I couldn't help but replicate this when I saw it on BHG's website:

Wizard of Oz quotes

Why you ask? Because The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie and who doesn't love an easy craft that makes instant art for you wall.   I found this old picture frame at the Goodwill and have plans for what's inside.  But I used the frame for this project.


It was easy to replicate the words by using Microsoft Word and picking similar fonts and colors for the wording. I printed it on my home computer.


Then I found some pretty fabric with similar colors to use as the backing. I painted the frame with one coat of spray primer and two coats of white spray paint, after sanding of course. And here is the finished product.


Here is where I decided to hang it. I love that it has yellow, gold, gray, and aqua's that really go well in our bedroom. It's also something I see when I wake up and is a perfect sentiment to begin my day (and to end my day for that matter.)


Oh and while we're on the subject of quick and easy art, I also did this frame while I was at it. I just used gray paisley fabric and found an image of a bee's nest to cut out and glue on top. :) 



Hope this inspires you to make some quick and easy art.
