Rooster Wall Decor
I have a super cool and super inexpensive project today which means it’s the same old same old around here. The pretty rooster wall decor only cost me two bucks. The great thing is it looks more like 20 or 30 bucks. The bold colors of the Rooster design make me smile.
I love putting things together from my treasured junk finds but I also like finding inexpensive dollar store items I can make fun stuff with.
Rooster Wall Decor – Dollar Store Crafts
It’s Dollar Store Design Squad day and I bought the items for my project from the Dollar Tree. That means you can make this same project if you want to …..or something very similar.
Dollar Tree Placemat
The pretty rooster placemat cost $1. There was a variety of placemats with pretty designs but the rooster was calling my name.
Dollar Tree Frame
The brown frame with glass was $1. I wanted a black frame but the glass was broken on the only black frame in the store.
No problem, I’ll just paint it. First thing I did was take the glass and cardboard backing out of the frame.
Spray Paint Frame Black
I pulled out some black spray paint and had that frame painted in a couple of minutes.
To cut the placemat to the size of the frame I laid the glass on top of the mat and marked around it with a pen. The only question was what area of the design I wanted to use. I opted to cut the design on the left side in half. Half a rooster and little curlicue designs.
Next I trimmed the placemat to fit the frame by cutting on the marked lines. Sounds like we’re in grade school doesn’t it. I know you guys know how to do this but I have to write something so you believe I took a lot of time and expended a lot of energy on this project
I put the rooster placemat face down in the back side of the frame and put the glass on the back side of the placemat. The glass overlay would have taken away from the pretty Rooster. Too much glare and the placemat already has a nice shiny finish.
Next I put the back on and flipped the hanger out…… ready for placement.
How easy was that. Sometimes the simplest projects make a big statement. I love the bold colors of the Rooster.
It looks nice sitting on the counter with my vintage McCoy cookie jar.
I think I like it better hanging on the wall. What about you guys? Do you think my new wall hanging looks like a $2 find or a $20 find? Be sure and leave a quick note.
If you liked the rooster you should really see the dollar store Nautical Candleholder I made here!!
