(crafting on a dime) wall decor for $8

I’m loving this Crafting On A Dime series and it just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to make something fabulous! Heidi of sew.craft.create is here today showing us how to make super cute wall decor for under 10 bucks. I just adore Heidi and her blog. I can’t wait to meet her in person at SNAP! next month! You might remember Heidi from my Do Something Crafty Challenge back in September, she was the winner with her creative vase makeover. I’ll turn my blog over to the fabulous Heidi now…

Hi! I’m Heidi from sew.craft.create. My blog is all about me, my three kidlets, sometimes the hubs, & my adventures in crafting. I’d love for you to stop by!

About a month ago, I found these awesome 7″ X 7″ metal tiles at Michaels for a dollar each! I grabbed three of them and put them on my shelf {as I do with so many things} waiting for the time/motivation to complete the project. So, when Vanessa told me about her series “Crafting on a Dime’ I knew exactly what I was going to do. I grabbed these little beauties and got to work.

The great thing about this project it how CHEAP it is. The whole cost for all three tins was $8!
{p.s. NEVER go to Michaels without a coupon, they will even scan it from your phone! You can google a 40-50% off one item or 20% off entire purchase every time!}
Paint: $2
Tins {3 of them}: $3
Dimensional glue dots: originally $3.50 got it for $1.25 with a 50% coupon
3 sheets of clearance scrapbook paper: $1
Paint brush, scissors, and baby wipe: already had ‘em
1. Paint the tin
2. Wait about 5 minutes and then lightly rub with a wipe.
3. Should look like this. Let dry for over an hour.
4. Cut flowers from scrapbook paper and place onto the tins with Dimensional Glue Dots.
How to make the center rosette:
1. Cut a circle. Starting at the edge of the circle cut as shown.
2. Starting from the edge begin rolling the paper.
3. When you reach the end, place some glue onto the center circle and press to newly created rosette to it.
4. Attach to flower using a glue dot.
Done! Couldn’t be easier!

Not bad for $8, huh?

I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!

    Oh boy, I’m so glad I found your blog, somehow, and am going to join. I am loving those tiles and paper flowers. What a great wall decoration. I have some tiles I got years ago, didn’t know exactly what I’d do with them but knew someday an idea would present itself and son of a gun, here it is. Tiles aren’t exactly like yours but close enough I think. Have lots of scrapbook paper and patterns to make flowers. Off I go. Just hope now I can find those tiles. Thanks for sharing a great idea and so inexpensive. That’s always a good thing for anybody let alone a senior crafter. I have pretty much everything so can get started on those tomorrow. What a happy inspiration.
