When I announced I’m starting to give away my hand-lettered printables free on the blog, several of you asked what you can do with them. So I brainstormed a list of 10 Fun Ways to Use & Display Printables and got to work taking pictures of all the different ideas! Don’t forget to come back Monday for the #freeprintoftheweek! 🙂
Perhaps the most obvious way is just to print and frame. Super easy home décor! I love finding awesome frames on the cheap at TJ Maxx.
I picked up pretty gold binder clips at Office Depot and simply hung a print on this advent frame. The frame would be really easy to DIY with a few eye hooks and wire picture hanger attached to any frame.
Hanger Picture Clips
I snagged these cute little guys at Target just a few days ago for 50% off in the frame and picture aisles. If you can’t find them in your local store, these are a similar style from the same brand.
I jazzed up a mini clipboard with some paint, Mod Podge, and glitter to make it a fun way to display my printable 2015 mini calendar in my office.
Wood Print Holder with Glitter Clothespins
I scored these cute mini glitter gold clothespins for a few bucks at Target in the scrapbook aisle. I cut a piece of wood to about 10-inches by 12-inches, painted it black, and glued on the clothespins. Now I can display and change out the printable whenever I want with ease!
I found this cute mini easel at Michael’s for about $5. I just taped the printable to it! I also just ordered this cute alternate style of mini easel from Amazon to use for displaying prints.
Just Add Water(color)
I love watercolors! They’re so pretty and you just can’t mess them up. I print all my prints on linen overstock which also makes great watercolor paper. It’s the perfect way to customize black and white prints!
Simply re-size the print in your favorite photo program (such as Picasa or PicMonkey), print, cut and glue or washi tape onto simple patterned notecards! I buy sets like the yellow polka dot pack pictured below for a just few dollars a set at Target.
DIY Wood Block Signs
Finally, I looooove this idea from Jen at Tatertots and Jello to make DIY Wood Block Signs! How cute is the knob added to the top? Get her tutorial here.
