Bright and Trendy Wall Art

I bought three of these decorative frames at a flea market. The frames had vintage looking art piece already in them – almost like a French painting.  My goal was to paint the frames and keep the vintage art intact. I taped off the art then painted the frames, and when I went to remove the tape, it ruined the artwork! I put the frames away until I could decide what to do with them. Since deer heads are so popular, I decided I would use scrapbook paper to create framed deer wall art over the vintage artwork in these bright frames!

This became such an easy project (though I’m still a tad disappointed about ruining the original artwork) and I really love the way they came out! Originally, I taped off the artwork, then spray painted the frames, each in a different color.

I didn’t want to remove the original artwork because it would have been a pain to put it back together so I covered it up. I measured the original artwork inside the frame and cut decorative scrapbook paper to cover it. I sprayed the back of the scrapbook paper with spray adhesive, then positioned the paper in the frame.

I used my vinyl and paper cutter to cut deer from white card stock. I positioned the adhesive foam dots on the back of the card stock deer. I used the foam dots to create a sort of 3D effect with the deer in the frame.

The frames already had a small metal loop on the back for a hanger which I forgot to check before adding the deer… I just happened to get lucky and they were all in the right position!

So what do you think? I love them! I love the way the white deer pop against the bright frames! Can you think of other ways to create framed deer wall art? I might hang these in my bedroom…
