Several of my friends have started talking about Christmas presents. I talked to VIP Bestie today and she was working on her Christmas list. Last week I was emailing with my BFF Pen Pal and she was fretting over how to afford gifts for her entire family. It got me thinking about some easy DIY gifts.
I made all of these prints for Robert’s nursery while I was pregnant. Here are some cheap and easy ways to make some Etsy-like artwork without spending much money.
This word cloud was made from a website called Tagxedo. Click on the “create” button once you get to the site and you can copy and paste any words you want into the cloud. Then you pick your shape, color scheme and word orientation. The word cloud shown contains the lyrics from “Under the Sea”. If you are really lazy you can even link the cloud to a certain website and it will include the words from the website. It is tons of fun. I printed these out on regular computer paper, but I am sure it would look better on photo quality paper.
I made one of these for a wedding present. I included the names of the bride and groom, the wedding date, and the wedding city. All the words were in the shape of a heart and in the wedding colors. The possibilities for this are endless! These would make great baby shower presents too.
I posted a complete guide to these prints in a previous post. Check it out for details.
I found this print on Pinterest, took a screenshot of it and printed it out on photo paper to make this canvas print. Here is the complete tutorial for canvas prints.
