How Cute Is That: love letter for the wall

Mar 11, 2013 | Home + Studio Tours



How Cute Is That? is my mom’s favorite expression — and our ongoing home decor & DIY series. From aprons to attics to alternative offices, we’re breathing new life into anything old, sharing inspired ideas,  and spinning mismatched scraps into charming decor. And YES, you can try this at home!

Super simple idea that is super adorable. Step one: Grab an empty collage photo frame. I got the one above from Pier One.
Next up: Instead of photos, insert hand written words that spell out a statement. For this one, I simply wrote one word per photo frame. I used a sharpie to write the words on torn sheets of old paper. I then taped them to the cardboard that was already in the frame (placeholders for photos) with washi tape.


You are so very loved….a perfect, instant hope message for the wall.
I hung this one up next to the bed in our guest room. I love the idea of our guests lying down after a busy day only to look over and see this sweet little message hanging on the wall.
Now, seriously friends. HOW CUTE IS THAT?

    Very cute – another take I'd credit if I remembered where I saw it is to take an empty frame (no glass either), spray your fave color if need be, hang and tape your little guy's artwork in it…can do a collage of many frames, best gallery ever right? 🙂
