Hi friends! Hope you had a great week! I don’t know about you but I am excited for the weekend! We have a great DIY home decor project for you today from design team member, Amanda Rydell and I know you are going to love it! A good gallery wall is hard to beat and I’ve always loved this one in Amanda’s home. It’s a fun idea to change things up for the fall and I love how she created a new look for her white deer head just by adding a piece of patterned paper behind it! So easy! Read on for the full tutorial!
Fall is officially here! I hate to even say it but I turned the heat on in my car yesterday and was not excited about it. I am not big into fall décor but decided this year I would try and add a little into my home decorating, especially since I finally got my hands on the new Maggie Holmes “Gather” paper collection and have fallen in love.
If you follow me on Instagram you have seen this gallery wall a few times and might recognize the white deer head that used to sit inside a blank frame. Today we are going to give that little deer a makeover.
Once you have all your supplies gathered, grab your paint brush and paint your frame and deer mount. I decided to paint both of mine white. Set your deer and frame aside to dry and grab the inside picture board from your frame.
Next we will attach the pattern paper to the inside picture board. Using the roller adhesive, cover the edges of the frame and a few spots in the middle . This step will hold our paper to the mat board. Attach the paper to the mat board making sure you line up the paper straight.
Once your frame and deer are dry, insert the pattern paper covered mat board back into your frame. Once your fame is back together it’s time to add your deer. I used a foam double sided adhesive square to attach my deer to my paper. Make sure you know where you want your deer before adding the adhesive as you only get one chance or you might rip your paper !!!!
I love how the pattern paper added a new texture to my deer head and wall. And the best part is that this project can be done within an hour!!! The best kind of DIY!!
