Dollar Store Ampersand ArtI really like the wood grain art I have seen popping up around the blogosphere recently, and was inspired to do my own take but on the cheap. I mean really cheap. I mean Dollar Store cheap!
What does Dollar Store have that is wood grain.........drawer liners of course!
I whizzed round my local store and picked up these supplies. I printed out the Ampersand sign in a variety of fonts (I'm slightly obsessed with "&" art at the mo. but this would look just as great with your initial).
(Side Note: how amazing are these Dollar Store 11x14 frames! I picked up two but will be going back for more).
I cut out the paper sign, traced the outline onto my wood grain drawer liner and cut around it with my Exacto knife. I made sure the piece I used had a nice wood knot to really highlight the grain.
As if wood grain paper for $1 wasn't amazing enough, it's sticky so is super easy to mount on whatever colour background you choose. I went for black card that we already had. I added a simple matte and this is how it looked.
So for $2 I have some funky new art and if I still need to line my drawers, there's plenty left!
