Recycled Home Decor with Authentique Paper & Petaloo

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************
We are all about recycling here (if you haven't noticed that already). My husband  is always finding "trash" for me to re-purpose into neat projects & home decor pieces. A few months ago he brought home a bunch of old picture frames that someone was throwing away. So my first thought was to make something with them!

I was really drawn to this frame. The dimension and design on it screamed "Enchanted!"

I painted the frame with a matte black spray paint, it was previously an antique gold color, which was not going to work for my project. Here you can see the neat detail. Adding the beautiful flowers from Petaloo was just the icing on the cake for this project. 

The dimensional flowers were made from recycled toilet paper rolls. I cut them into strips and spray painted them then added a little shimmer with some glimmer mist. I used stickers from the "Enchanted" 12x12 Details sticker sheet for the centers of the flowers. 

I thought that the little spiders were just the cutest little things! I had to add them on here somewhere... and I am NOT a fan of spiders... I'm actually terrified of them. These however, are simply adorable and were the perfect addition to my Halloween home decor project!

  4. Emily...you are an inspiration! An old "throw away" frame and the "lowly" TP roll turned into a work of art like this one, amazing! Your choice of orange Petaloo flowers and spiders is the perfect complement too!! Thank you for making our flowers and Dazzlers look so great!!!

  7. Hi, Emily! Your project is really cute and how lucky are you to have a hubby that "gets" you and what you're all about? My ex would no more have thought to bring home old frames to me than the man in the moon.... that's one reason he's my ex! LOL Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. I really like the dimensional flowers on here. I love the way you see the edges of the toilet roll instead of just using flat paper. The spiders are so cute. Just a little detail added that made this project even cuter. Fun stuff!

  12. Love the ornate frame, great idea to spray it! Will have to try that.

  13. I think the matte black paint helps bring out the detail in the picture frame really well. Even with the black and orange color scheme the matte black keeps it from screaming just halloween. It can be used as decor for the whole Fall season, even with the spiders. And, I still get a giggle when I see art work using toilet paper rolls. It's wonderful to be able to take something so forgettable and make 'prettiness' out of it.

  14. Like the use of the frame, as you said perfect for this project.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Perfect! Love the flowers, love the frame, love it all!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I find the gold, ornate frames to be just too much for almost anything, so painting it black makes the frame stand out without being overpowering.

    The spiders add the perfect touch!

  17. This came out very nice! I love to recycle & DIY! Spray is a girls best friend! Anxious to see all your projects this week!

  37. I'm fairly certain this wasn't suppose to happen-but that quote moved me to tears.What a beautiful sentiment-it brings back memories of a simpler,
    gentler time.I want to use it with fireflies somehow.Thank you for taking me back in time.

  38. I like everything about your frame except the spiders!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really love this frame and altered piece! LOVE the addition of the spiders...which I didn't even notice at first! Almost like a project with a hidden surprise!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love, love, love this frame. I think this line is gorgeous. Orange is my favorite color. I'd probably skip the spiders, though. I'm petrified of them :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. So cute!! I hate spiders but this frame was just darling.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I adore this project. And as I was looking at it and making notes on how it was made, I came to a great idea! If you used repositional adhesive, you could remove the halloween details later ...replace with something current and it would work year long!
    Great project!

    ReplyDelete
  43. love this picture frame! thanks for the chance to win goodies!

    ReplyDelete

  47. Seriously awesome! I love how you used the toilet paper tubes. We go through a ton so I need to jump on the bandwagon and use them for crafting. I just love the whole look of this project. Fabulous job!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Beautiful frame! I haven't made anything using a frame yet, but this beautiful project gives me the urge! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wonderful idea! Would look great in white for a little girl's room, too...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wonderful project, Emily. I'm a HUGE fan of recycle projects! Makes me look at toilet rolls in a whole new light!

    ReplyDelete
  54. OK, so I need your husband to find things for me! I am so in love with your frame and it is even more awesome because of your "reworking" of it! That background paper is so lovely and your toilet paper details are wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Great idea! I agree those little spiders are so darn cute. The paper with the writing in the background really adds to the look.
