As part of my role as an Official Apartment Guide Organizing Blogger, I was challenged to take a tip from the Apartment Guide Blog and put it to use in our home. Fun, right?
- Make a funky vase with an old sock.
- Grow an indoor spice garden.
- Wrap a canvas in fabric for a colorful wall piece.
In the end, I decided to stick with something super simple that I’ve been thinking about doing for my future office/craft room (the same project I’ve been talking about for more than a year; I’m hoping to actually get it done in the next few months!): framed greeting cards.
I had picked up this adorable set of greeting cards — four trees, each representing a different season — from Etsy last year, and I think they’re perfect lined up on a shelf!
The greeting cards were MUCH cheaper than the versions of these drawings that were made to be framed, but the size was perfect for the frames we had. You can’t beat that!
