Welcome back to another Monday Made It hosted by the lovely Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!
This week I am kicking off a new series of Monday Made It posts on my blog:
Hopefully it will be the solution to end my craft fails! During this series, I am going to take an everyday object and totally transform it into something new.
For today's transformation I turned to my trusty sidekick: Pinterest. While it might be summer, teacher's never turn off their school brain. After seeing these on Pinterest...
I knew I just had to make some fancy new wall art for the classroom! If you are like me, you fall in love with wall art at places like Hobby Lobby only to discover it costs upwards of $30 for a single canvas. Have no fear, I am here to show you a much cheaper way to get top notch wall art! For the final product, each canvas cost under $1.50 to make after using coupons.
Let's take a look at the break down:
Feel free to pin any of my Monday Made It creations on Pinterest that you might like to tackle in the future! We all know it is where most of my crafting ideas come from!
The process to turn these canvas bags into wall art takes just a few simple steps. If you are a teacher hoarder and Target fanatic like myself, odds are you will have all these things at your disposal.
To make six of these bags it took less than an hour. My favorite part, there was no wait time for things to dry like with other crafting projects. It was as easy as cut, tack, hang. The even have the strap already attached so they can easily be hung on the wall. Here are the final products in all their glory...
As you can see, I had a newer (2014) and older (2013) version of each bag. I know I have the original (2012) bags from the Pinterest page if I dig through my closet hard enough. I have been diligently collecting these bags at Target. I always buy at least 2 of each bag when I go to the Dollar Spot because I never know when I might need more than one and they are always sold out. Good thing I bought duplicates because now I have beautiful wall art and bags to use in the classroom. I cannot wait until the new set of bags come out so I can continue to add to my collection!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Thanks to Fancy Frugal Life for the inspiration for this project! See you next week when I tackle another Totally Transformed project!
