How to make your own DIY Print…

Prints are the new must have accessory to bring any space to life, whether it be in your office, on your bedroom wall, or gracing your hallway. I have been collecting frames to decorate our bedroom for a while now, and I really wanted to incorporate a couple of DIY Prints of beautiful and thoughtful quotes to spread positivity within the space.

I posted a little DIY that I undertook a few weeks ago of a print I created over on my Instagram (pictured below), and thanks to the great feedback, I thought why not share the process for the next one.

Today's little DIY project was filling this beautiful white frame I picked up recently from @daiso_official ! Also, how cute is the Z marquee letter from @typoshop next to it? ✨💋💛 I picked out this beautiful quote, thanks to @pinterest , penciled and cut it on a white paper and stuck it on a piece of card that I spray painted using my trustee Metallic Copper Spray Paint. Put it in the frame and Voila! Though it took the entire evening to cut out all the letters, I'm so pleased with the end result! Hoping to work on one more frame DIY project and the search for a good quote is on. Do you have any suggestions for beautiful quotes like this one? #diy #diyproject #frame #whiteinterior #interiordecor #decorinspo #quote #quoteoftheday #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #mummyblogger #dubaiblogger #expatblogger #uaeblogger #mummyblog #dubaiblog #expatblog #uaeblog #alhumdulillah #blessed #proudmother #uaemombloggers #dubaimoms #dubaimummy #mashaAllah #photooftheday #pinterestinspired

I have already shared with you the Rose Gold/Copper details that I am currently obsessing over and decided to DIY into our bedroom, so naturally my next frame is in Rose Gold too.

    Love the bronze paint! These look so lovely. I’m not quite good with home DIY really.
