Inexpensive Home Decor

Hi Everyone! 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I want to share this supper inexpensive simple decor idea for your home! I bought this picture frames from the Micheal’s $1. bins. They were all different colors so I too white acrylic paint and made them all uniform. I cut four pieces of burlap and stamped the word HOPE on them inserted them and voilĂ ! I decided to add cute paper rose and set it by one of the frames for added interest. I purposely chose not to attach any embellishments this way I can just exchange the flower/s from season to season! Hope that this inspires you to make one for yourself. Have a wonderful week
