I have always loved a classic piece of silhouette art – especially when it’s my kid! When I wanted to make a silhouette art wall in our home, I figured out how to make a silhouette myself. And you know what? It’s easy! Find out how to make your own DIY silhouette below!
If you have been around here for long enough, you may have heard me chat about PicMonkey* – the way I edit pictures online for free.
But that’s not all Picmonkey does. Nope, you can also create images from scratch on there, make collages, and so much more. All the images you see around here with writing on them, all the collages, all that kind of stuff – I made with PicMonkey.
Hanging heavy pictures, art pieces, mirrors and more can be difficult. What kind of anchor to use, how to install it, etc. Well, I’m here to help and show you how to hang a heavy picture easily and securely. This is absolutely the best way to hang heavy pictures that I’ve ever found. If you…
In case you didn’t know, I’m not an art connoisseur.
Now a cheap beer connoisseur, I am.
Ok, really just Miller High Life.
Here’s how I decide what art to hang on my walls:
I browse online and/or thrift stores.
Ooooo, I like it.
Look at the price tag.
Ooooo, its cheap.
Ooooo, its expensive.
Pretty straightforward, no?
While there may never be a priceless hand painted original piece of art hanging in my home, excluding the circus’ art, these pieces either already reside here or will at some point.
Because they’re pretty.
And nothing beats pretty and cheap together.

Accent walls can be a total game changer for a room. Not only will they add character and beauty, but they can define a space and bring it to a whole other level – not that this happened in my dining room or anything lately. 😉 Here are a few of my favorite accent wall…
Somedays, I close my eyes, walk up the concrete steps that are missing one rail on the side, put my hand on the heavy metal door’s knob, turn it, and walk through the back door.
And he’s there. Sitting at the kitchen table. A stack of magazines a foot tall beside him on the table, the landline phone above the table with the cord stretched out past no return.
But if I go back a little farther in my mind, she’s there too, I’m around five years old, and there’s a refrigerator donning stickers that spell out “Jenna Ann.”
And its time for milkshakes.
When its milkshake time, there is no getting ice cream out of the freezer. There is no running to the store to pick up a gallon.
Instead, she pulls down a huge tupperware bowl and we hop in the Cadillac to go get the good ice cream from Win Bob’s Drive In.
They fill the tupperware bowl up and I hold onto it for dear life on the ride home.
Grannie whips us up milkshakes, which are followed by The Wildhorse Saloon on the television complete with dancing around the room.
I’ve never had a better milkshake in all my life.
Or her green beans.
Or the deviled eggs she would make and leave some egg whites empty for just me.
I wasn’t yet seven when she died, but she is probably the one woman who has left the biggest impression on my life.
Guys, this may be one of my favorite Fifteen on Friday projects ever.
Ok well, its right up there with the electrical tape lampshade, duck tape curtains, and lucite trays anyway.
As you know, I am a huge fan of making my own DIY wall decor. I made my own prints with PicMonkey for my master bedroom, used the sassy printables on the sequined coat hangers, and made my own silhouette art.
This DIY modern art was by far one of the easiest home decor items I have ever created and I think it looks fab.
And did I mention I made it with a gift bag?

I love music. In fact, I don’t just love music, I live music. If you have ever read my About Me page, you know that my musical tastes are incredibly varied. I’m talking Patsy Cline one minute and KISS the next. Yep, I’m that girl. I even made my daughter a playlist before she was…
If you remember, I bought some vintage nursery rhyme books and made this cute tissue box cover for the nursery…. I also chose 6 of the nursery rhymes to frame. I bought simple white frames at Micheal’s and used scrapbook paper as the background. Simple, cute, and vintage. How can you go wrong with that…
