DIY State Art

We have friends who are getting ready to move and I wanted to do something special for them as a going away gift. Their little girl was born here, so I thought it would be sweet to do a little piece of state art for her nursery.

I chose a pink that I thought would match her room and gold glitter because…hello, it’s gold and glitter. Frames are one of those things that seem to be a Goodwill staple. Try to think outside of the box–you can always paint a frame that isn’t your type.

I printed the shape of South Carolina and cut it out. Then, I used that as a template to trace onto the glitter card stock. I cut out the second shape and used double-sided tape to attach it to the pink paper. Super easy and I love the way it turned out.

I think that a personal gift always feels a little more special, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. I definitely can see myself doing this again for more friends!

As always, if you like it, pin it!

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra

  1. Cool idea. Would you try it with a photograph cut into the shape of the state?
