A DIY for a Case of the Mondays: ‘Keep Going’ Inspirational Wall Art


DIY //

This morning, I have a teeny tiny case of the Mondays. So I thought I would share a recent DIY that I created for my office makeover (which I’ll be sharing in full later this month) to get myself motivated for the week. Along with anyone else who is feeling the struggle this morning.

Make your own inspirational wall art, like my ‘Keep Going’ piece, with some decorative paper (I found mine at Paper Source), a yard stick, and alphabet stickers.

DIY Inspirational Wall Art

How To:

1. Decide on the phrase you want to use and find the center (length and width wise) of a piece of decorative paper, with a yard stick. This will help ensure that the phrase in centered when finished.

2. Remove the stickers and place them onto the decorative paper. I found that placing the middle letters of each word first made it easier to keep everything centered.

3. Once finished, frame and hang. Easy as that!

I’m having a bad case of the Mondays as well, and I think that this DIY might help me get over it. Sometimes all you need is some inspirational words to help keep you going. This is a very cute idea, and I love how easy it is to make this piece of wall art. Thanks for sharing, Brittni!

Agreed, Bookworm. Hadn’t even thought about the travel aspect. But you’re so right.

I love this DIY especially because everyone needs a little motivation from time to time and I’ve been looking to redecorate my room as well so this might be the perfect finishing touch! 🙂
