how-to-draw-wall-framesI must admit, I seriously think I’m getting an addiction to drawing on the walls.

Maybe I missed out on that adventure when I was a little girl, but there really is something freeing about it!

Drawing these frames was seriously so easy.  I just broke it down into a few simple steps and before I knew it, there were three awesome hand drawn frames on my wall.

  • The first thing I did was to find an image of the frame I wanted to draw.  I chose some doodle frames because I knew I needed a hand-drawn look.
  • Then I taped it to the wall above my frame.

{This is me about to start on my second frame.  I did it for the first one as well.}

  • Then, I measured out from the sides about 2″ and made a mark.

  • And I measured out 4″ from the top  and bottom {because it has that larger curve there}

  • Next, I outlined the actual print with my crayon.

  • Then, using my marks as a guide, i drew the larger curved part at the top.

  • Then I repeated the process on the sides, but only went out with my curve to the 2″ mark.

  • And then added all the rest of the embellishments.

And that was it.  Really, so NOT hard!  And I’m super happy with how they turned out!

Did you see all three of them?

I hope you are winding down all the craziness of shopping!  I went to wrap today and realized I’m missing a few things so it’s right back out there to the sea of Christmas Bonanza tonight…
