I absolutely fell in love with the ceiling medallion wall art display I added to the Master Bedroom Mood Board I created as part of the Apartment Guide: New Year New Style Blogger Challenge, but as luck would have it, those fabulous things aren't exactly inexpensive... especially for a series of them on the wall and a budget of no more than $150 total. When in doubt... think paper craft! And so I did...
You may remember this Holiday Craft I shared with you all. Yyou may also remember that I mentioned how I thought they might look good year round, and as it turns out, they do!
This project cost no more than $6 in poster paper and thin foam 'paper'. I thought a few different shades of yellow would be best and my local craft store only offered that if I was willing to mix mediums, so of course I was. The thin foam medallions are kind of fabulous I have to say. They feel a tad less fragile and would open the doors for paint or easy cleaning, which is important to me.
I used the tutorial from Craft-Werk found here for creating the medallions and the sizes I chose for this project were 14", 9" 7" and 4 1/2", which were mainly determined based on the paper and foam sizes I purchased. Each star requires 6 squares and so my tendency was to determine the length of the shortest side of my material and divide it by 2 and used that dimension as my size for the squares.
Easy Peasy and fairly decent impact for pennies on the dollar.
Let's take a look at our running tab so far:
= $75 Remaining... Stay tuned, more fun to come!
I still have lot's of big projects and accessorizing to do, yahoo!
