My oldest daughter’s room makeover is nearly complete (check out the transformation here) , but one of the projects I had on my to-do list was to complete a gallery wall above her dresser. Since this month is Movember, and she likes the idea of using moustaches as decor, I figured, what the hey? Let’s do it 🙂
For the gallery wall, I did a total of three crafts, which helps bring a cohesive look to the room. Of course, I stuck with the black, white, gold and hot pink colour scheme. The gallery wall turned out to be a fun and unique element in her room. I think my favourite part is the DIY banner.
I started off with a canvas I picked up at the dollar store, wooden dowels, moustache clips, and some scrapbook paper from Michaels (on sale for $0.33 each). I had some gloss black and matte white paint on hand, but those are easily found at any local dollar store.
Craft No. 1: Selfie Moustaches
I started off by poking holes in a cardboard box and inserting my dowels in the holes. This made it easier to paint them a shiny gloss black. I then drew out some moustaches and traced them on to the scrapbook paper and cut them out.
I then glued the mustaches to the top of the dowels with a hot glue gun.
For a fun display, I placed them in a pink vase I picked up at the Dollar Tree. Now my daughter and her friends can use them for cute selfies. What teenager isn’t obsessed with taking selfies? Lol.
Craft No. 2: Moustache on Canvas
For the canvas, I painted it a cream colour. Once that dried, I taped off stripes using masking tape, and them painted the stripes in the same gloss black. The lines aren’t perfect, but that’s ok.
Using the gold scrapbook paper, I cut out a moustache shape and simply glued it to the canvas. It’s so sparkly in person. This pic is the best one I could find that highlights how sparkly it is.
Craft No. 3: Banner
I made a template using a cardboard piece from a cereal box. This helps ensure all pieces are the same size.
Using PicMonkey, I made the mini “chalkboards” to spell out the sentence I wanted on the banner.
I then cut them out and glued them on to each pennant. I used some of the excess gold scrapbook paper to add some sparkle to the bottom of each pennant.
I attached each pennant using one of the mustache clips to some gold floral wire. I used clear push pins to attach the floral wire to the wall.
Here is the gallery wall all finished.
That’s it for today everyone. I’ll be back again on Tuesday to show you my Outdoor Thanksgiving Tablescape, and my very first ever Giveaway. Yay!!!! Who likes shopping????
See you then 🙂
