Awesome Things to Hang on the Wall, Part Deux

When I saw these online, I knew I wanted to make one for my hubby's birthday. I had the perfect square frame (thrifted of course, and painted white), scrapbook paper for the background, a fiskars heart thingamabobbie, and tons of old maps that we don't use anymore thanks to GPS.

Here was my inspiration for this project:

I love how mine turned out :)

Awesome Things to Hang on the Wall

I love this. I made three, one for my hubby for Valentine's Day, one for my sister-in-law for her birthday, and one for my friend for Christmas! I used to make the mosaic, and this Flickr group for the photos (Totally awesome!) I wanted mine to be in black and white; that's an easy fix using pretty much any photo software. I use Digital Image Pro 9. Now all I have to do is find some square thrift store frames, paint them white or black, and voila :) Yesterday I actually did find a small silver square frame (opening is 5x5) while out thrifting, still new in the box and bubble wrap, for only 90c. Score!

Of course, I can't take credit for this idea. I saw it on pinterest, of course! Here are the ones I found on pinterest for your viewing pleasure:

And here are two more that I made.
