I found 2 large framed prints at a garage sale last fall for $3 each! I instantly knew I wanted to use them for some DIY art when the right inspiration hit!




When we began the design board for our basement makeover, I came across some hot glue artwork on Pinterest and knew I had to put my own spin on it for some high drama, eye catching art.

Not only is this art stunning and unique, but it is extremely affordable using only a few materials and your creativity! I only spent $10 on this 24X30 wall art including the cost of the spray paint!



If you're intimidated by the thought of using a hot glue gun to make an image or design, keep this in mind - hot glue typically can be peeled away after it is cool. So if you make a mistake you can easily "erase it!"



Materials

  • A sturdy material like canvas, fiberboard, wood or glass. I applied hot glue straight to the non-glare glass of my garage sale art with no issue! You could even remove the glass from a frame and apply hot glue to the frame backing!




How to Make it


I cleaned the frame and glass to remove any dirt and build-up. You could draw out a design first or freehand it like I did. I moved my hot

glue gun slowly like I would with any art utensil, slowing applying lines of glue to make the shapes I wanted.


I checked for spider web glue strings and pulled off what I could.

I gave the entire piece, including the frame, a few coats of flat white spray paint. If you don't like the single color look, you can always make the frame a different color!
