Inspirational Word Art with a Dollar Store Price Tag

I almost gave up my search for a small piece of art work to place on a ledge shelf in our powder room. It needed to be simple and fit the semi- monochromatic color scheme I have going on in there. {The reveal post is coming soon} I toyed around with several ideas as I knew exactly what I wanted but not really at the same time…is that even possible??

While browsing our local Dollar Tree I surprisingly found these Main Street Wall Creations and had to snatch them up. They are easy on – easy off, self-adhesive, translucent stickers that are meant to put directly on your walls just like the ever popular vinyl creations out there today…except these were $1.00…yes, $1.00! They had several inspirational sayings and the colors and calligraphy writing style fit perfect with my project.

I had a 10X10 blank stretched art canvas already though I have seen these in the dollar stores as well. I took the canvas and wrapped it in some white paisley printed scrap fabric; pulling it taunt and stapling it to the back of the wooden frame. I simply folded the corners neatly and stapled them to the back as well.

Measuring to mark the center of the canvas and using the tape measure as a guide, I peeled and placed the stickers. The saying I happen to use already had each word pre-cut – how easy was that!

The stickers attached so well that I did not have to use any other adhesive.

Quick and Easy art and who would have thought ~ The Dollar Tree! Enjoy! XOXO

  5. Love this! I have eyed these at my $store but was afraid you would be able to see the clear part on my darker walls. I NEVER thought of using them like that!!! I may have to pick up a few next time I stop by! Thanks!

  6. That is great and such a TRUE sentiment!

  9. Hi Stephanie! I love what you did with the letters. What section would I find these in at The Dollar Tree?

  10. I am totally heading to our Dollar Stores to see if I can find these too!

  11. I saw these at the dollar store and can you believe I didn’t pick them up! I was looking for something bigger but geez at 1.00 I would have found something to use them on!! Probably all gone now-but will go check!!

  12. ~Shannon P~ At our DT they are in the section near the laundry items…Hangers, etc. They have several different types and a lot of them are brightly colored. They even have CHALKBOARD kind =) Hope that helps!

  13. This looks SO nice! I’m going to have to keep my eyes open for those!

  14. Beautiful! You did a great job! I’ve been wanting some of the wall sticky art sayings but Michaels wants $20 or more for them. I’ll have to check out my local dollar tree. Thanks for posting!

  15. I know this post is ooooold, but I’ve been looking for an idea like this! I snagged several of these from the Dollar Tree months ago, but haven’t decided what to do with them. We are in the military, so I wanted to do something with them that I could take with us (as opposed to just sticking them on the walls). Thanks!!
