DIY $1 Modern Kids Art

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

You know what I loveeeee?! Well, besides adding extra letters to words to emphasize their importance, I love art that is cheap that does not look cheap.  I was cleaning out my art cabinet yesterday when I discovered all of these unopened packages of die-cut letters that I had purchased from the dollar store a while back for no reason at all (typical).  For those of you who are thinking, "What in the heck are die-cut letters?" they are the letters that come in sheets that are ready for you to just poke them out and use them however you want.

I love how simple and modern the letters are and realized they would be perfect when incorporated into an art print.  This seriously is the easiest project and since I already had the frame, card stock paper and glue I am going to call this the $1 project because that is all that is cost me!  This would look perfect in a children's room or anywhere for that matter.

What you will need:
  • A frame
  • Heavy drawing paper
  • Die- cut number/letters, which can be found at any dollar store
  • Glue stick 
  1. Punch out the letters or numbers that you want to use for your art print. 
  2. Arrange them onto the heavy drawing paper in the design that you wish.
  3. Glue your die-cuts to your paper.
  4. Place the finished product into a frame and hang wherever you wish!

Pretty easy right?!  The options of phrases, numbers and letters are endless so have fun!
