DIY art!

i saw a post on nuestra vida dulce (one of my absolute favorite bloggers ever) about these geometric wall decals, and knew they would be perfect in our new living room. i ordered them that day, and they sat in their packing for months and months until i could figure out what in the world i was going to do with 8 huge stickers. 


i thought about buying frames for them, but that turned out to be a little too pricey for this project since i am notorious for changing things up a little too often. coupons in hand, i headed to michael's to find a solution. i ended up with these extremely affordable square 12"x12" canvasas that came two to a pack and thought it would help to make them look more like art and less like cheap stickers. 

they didn't stick very well to the canvas, so i had to use a bit of hot glue...but you would never notice. they make a beautiful, bold statement on the huge wall over the couch, and i am so pleased with how it turned out. 

who knows, i may get tired of them in the next couple of months, but that is the beauty of DIY art for under $50!

the website has tons of different decals to choose from...totally loving this paris map! these would all look great on canvases!

  1. molly, i am drooling over this and have got to replicate in my dining room... do the stickers have a glossy or matted finished? how did you glue it so that it didn't bubble up?

  2. Cute! I love that idea! I've always stayed away from decals because I was never in love with the idea of stickers on the wall. But on canvas, that's genius!

  3. Love, love the stickers on the canvases! Your whole living room looks great!

  4. Those look stunning! Thanks for the sweet words about my blog, too. : )
