We have TONS of wall space in our house and being in our 30’s we haven’t really acquired too much stuff yet. Well I guess that’s not totally true…..we have loads of “stuff” just not the kind of stuff you want to display. So I’m always on the lookout for cheap wall art.
My youngest son’s room has a monkey jungle theme and I kept searching around for cheap prints. I stumbled upon several websites that featured letters and numbers with animals mixed in. I loved that idea and thought….maybe I can make this myself?
I was able to make both of these pieces on PowerPoint. When I was in graduate school, we used PowerPoint to make all kinds of graphics and posters. It’s a pretty handy tool for all kinds of things other than presentations.
Of course, after making something new for one child, I felt guilty and whipped up some cool new art for my older son’s room too. I used the same technique and tied in his baseball theme. Again, super cheap and easy!
My oldest son really loves the new special artwork that was made especially for him by mommy. And I think that’s the best payoff really. A sweet smile on my little boys face knowing I spent some time doing something just for him that day.
