Hi there! Summer here from Elevate Everyday. My partner in “blogging” crime, Jen, and I are so excited to be a part of Kristen’s team and get to know you all.  I have a quick and easy DIY tutorial for you all today that is perfect for all those Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas art projects that are about to invade your fridge.

DIY Art Display

Here is what you are going to need to make this happen.

DIY Art Display Supplies

– A 6×11 board cut into two 3 foot pieces

-Stain (I chose grey), Paint (I chose aqua), Foam Brush, Painters or Masking Tape and Bulldog Clips

DIY Art Display Collage

1. Apply 1 thin coat of grey stain and let dry. You want the grain of the wood to still show through for a rustic look.

2. Tape off 2 lines so you can paint your stripe.

3. Apply 1 generous coat of acrylic paint between tape lines.

4. Remove your tape and let dry then lightly sand the edges to give it a worn look.

Last: Apply your Bulldog Clips evenly spaced using Gorilla Glue or Super Glue

The only thing left to do now is hang them. I used a level to make sure they were straight and used Command Strips instead of nails to hang them. We are renting so the less holes I have to fill when we eventually move out (a long, long time from now I hope!) the better.
