Do you love super easy DIY projects you can do in just a few minutes – no special skills required?
Oh good. Me too.
And I just so happen to have one to share with you today. 😉
I was looking for something to replace those old neighborhood photographs I hung up at the start of last winter – I’m not sick of them, it’s just that they include a lot of snow…and well…I’m kind of over snow and all things winter right now.
I didn’t feel like digging through photographs to find something to replace them with…
I’ll just put it out there now – this project may have been born out of pure laziness…
And I didn’t feel like digging through the basement to find something completely new to hang in their place. So, I decided to see what a couple of book pages would look like in those frames…
And then I didn’t feel like digging out an old book to rip up, so I grabbed an old dictionary I had sitting there instead.
And as I was lazily flipping through the pages of that old dictionary, my eyes caught on a small little botanical graphic on one page. I continued flipping and realized that dictionary was filled with little graphics depicting flowers and plants and trees, etc.
Flowers and plants and trees?
Sounds like spring to me.
So I tore out two pages, lined them up in each frame – I ended up liking my graphics to be off center, but that’s entirely up to you, cut the pages to fit, and then popped those frames back on the wall.
Told you there were no special skills required! 🙂
I think we all probably have an old dictionary tucked away somewhere. If you don’t, I see them all the time at flea markets, garage sales, etc. And I can’t remember the last time I actually pulled a dictionary out to look something up – I use my phone instead – so why not put some of those beautiful word-filled pages to good use, right?
All in all, not too bad for a little lazy decorating.
And this was so super-duper easy, that if I stop being lazy and get to the store, I might even grab a couple more frames (these two are from Target) and put together a couple more…
