Get Creative with Wall Art

You don't need to buy expensive prints or even more expensive paintings to adorn your walls. In fact you probably already have some amazing art work right in your home, ready to create amazing works wall decoration.

Children's artwork. Frame several of the best of your child's drawings or paintings and hang them in an informal grouping on one wall.

Maps, charts and sheet music. Frame and hang maps or charts of your favourite  destinations, or the sheet music to your favourite musical. Or look for old music books and sheet music and frame it. I found an old copy of my very first music book and framed my favourite piece from it. It looks great and reminds me every day just how much I love the piano.

Postcards. These are becoming rare in this day of electronic mail, so create a collage and frame it or put just one in an extra special frame and hang it to display a record of your travels.

Seed packets. Arrange seed packets on a cork board and frame it for a unique country look.

Tickets. Save tickets to sporting events, concerts, even train or plane trips and frame them. Create a collage or stick to a theme - save the tickets to your team games and frame them to show your support and create a conversation piece.

You don't need to spend a fortune on frames either - look for old frames at op shops and garage sales, re-finish frames you already have or get creative and make some yourself.
