Inspiration DIY

Who doesn't need constant positive reminders? We love collecting encouraging quotes and reading them often to keep us motivated. We decided to make a permanent inspirational reminder to decorate our walls. 




Here's what you need:

Magazines
Scissors
A ruler
A frame
Paper
Stick of glue
Letter stencils (optional)




Ashley happens to have an absurd collection of Nylon magazines, so we spent some time searching through those for interesting patterns. It wasn't hard to pick out quite a few options to cut out our letters from.


The only thing to keep in mind here is to have a good balance of bright and dark colors, not too much of one or the other. 

We then just hand traced the letters and cut them out. If you want a cleaner look you can use stencils to even out the letters. We liked the more crafty look of uneven letters.




Finally, when the letters were all cut out, we used our ruler to make straight lines and glued the letters down. We placed the paper in the frame and voila! 


Stay inspired.


xoxo,
