While on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby I found some great pieces of scrapbook paper. I really didn’t feel like they looked like scrapbook paper.

They looked more like pictures they would sell there. So it got me thinking, why not make my own DIY wall art using them? I even found a cool lobster piece that I will be doing a project for later on!!

Scrapbook Paper Wall Art

I did a similar project like this for fall using extra pieces of wood I had. But this time I decided to get a piece of wood cut for this project.

I spent $7.00 on a 3 foot piece of wood, and had Lowe’s cut it into 3 12 x 12 pieces. I was super excited to get home and get crafting!

For this craft you’re going to need:

Getting Started

Since I already had my scrapbook paper and wood, I just needed to round up the rest of my supplies. Like my Mod Podge of course!

Let’s get crafting!

Easy DIY Wall Art with Scrapbook Paper

Step 1 – Paint Your Board

I only painted the sides of my wood, since the rest will be covered up by the paper. I used white craft paint and let it dry 20 minutes.

For the gold deer I actually spray painted the sides gold, but I didn’t take any step pictures of the gold deer unfortunately.

Step 2 – Add Scrapbook Paper

Next it’s time to add our scrapbook paper!!

I painted my Matte Mod Podge on the front of the wood, then gently laid my paper on top of the wood. I would smooth the paper down then add more Mod Podge and smooth it down some more. Until I was finished. Pretty simple right?!?

I decided not to add any Mod Podge on the front of my paper for this project.

Since I got the wood cut to 12×12 it fit perfectly on the wood, YAY!! No cutting needed.

Finishing Touches

Since Mod Podge dries pretty fast, I was able display it right away on my mantel. Right now it’s winter, and I think my DIY wall art looks great.

But honestly I think this deer could be up all year long. Deer heads are so popular right now!

Here is the gold deer. I really like them both, I don’t know which one is my favorite.

This DIY wall art was such an easy project to work on, and totally cost effective. I only paid .59 cents for the piece of scrapbook paper and $7.00 for the wood. Cute and inexpensive . . . win win!

I'm with Alicia V. on this one. How did you get the transparent look of the deer head on the scrapbook paper? I've seen ones where you can tell that the deer head was cut out of one piece of paper and attached to the other, but with the transparent look, you can't tell that at all. It looks great!!

The deer is actually on the piece of scrapbook paper. I found the scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby for .59 cents. So it's all one peice of scrapbook paper. Hope that helps. ;-)

Love this Deer artwork piece! Now, was the deer head already on the scrapbook paper or did you draw it on there?

Hi Alicia, the deer was on the scrapbook paper already. I was so excited when I found it at Hobby Lobby for .59 cents. I knew it would be a cool project.

These are super cute and easy! Great idea:) I just took down Christmas and always feel the house looks so bare afterwards. Putting up new artwork is a great idea to help fill the walls!
