Weekend DIY Projects

Faux Gilded Insects

I had some fun on the weekend doing a little DIY painting giant plastic bugs gold! I am redoing a Tween girls bedroom and she is a nature lover. She had a set of giant plastic bugs she did not want to part with so I came up with the idea of repurposing them into wall art in the form of Faux Taxidermy.

A trip to the craft store for wooden plaques, paint and a hot glue gun is all I needed to turn her treasures into a work of art! Here’s how to do it yourself.

I needed a large inspiration bulletin board for my office but got sticker shock when I went to buy one! So I thought I would see if I could create a similar one on a budget and only use readily available materials. I thought I would share this project in case you wanted to give it a try yourself.
