Simple DIY Dimensional Wall Art

Hi friends! Joy here. Have you ever opened up a paper pack and thought, "That's not just paper, that's art."? Well, that's what happened to me when I opened up SEI's Chalet paper pack. That plus the Yesteryear Printed Burlap were all I needed to get started with my newest crafty adventure, creating wall art for my craft room!

This project is quick, easy and inexpensive. My "canvas" is a 12" x 12" kraft storage box. I simply took the top off and am using both the top and bottom of the box for my project. I like that the varying depths add interest to my wall. I'm using Antique Matte Mod Podge to adhere the Yesteryear Printed Burlap to the box. Regular Mod Podge works fine for this too.

Cover the box with Mod Podge. Place the burlap over the Mod Podged area. Cover the burlap with Mod Podge and let dry. Easy! Even easier? After trimming off the informational edge of the Chalet Double Diamond patterned paper, I simply glued it to the box using my ATG gun. So simple!

I used thumbtacks to hold the boxes in place. I love looking at these lovely designs and adore having some awesome wall art in my craft room now! Consider turning the deeper side of the box toward the room and creating a shadowbox design.

Happy Crafting!
