$13 DIY Oversize Artwork Inspiration

Do you remember awhile back when we shared this tip about creating black and white oversized artwork for a ridiculously low price? Well we're still sort of obsessed with the idea; it's just so cheap we can't help ourselves. So when we came across this similar idea, we loved the twist added from a basic hardware store staple. Can you guess what inexpensive product these giant photos are mounted on?

We checked in with Mandy over at Sugar Bee Crafts where she's been busy making this giant 4'x3' piece of artwork for her daughters' room. It truly makes the space their own and we love that it's done on a budget that most of us can afford (without eating Ramen for a month).

She used the same idea we spoke about previously and printed out Architect's Blueprints from her local Staples. The print is cheap, but how do you hang artwork of that size? Well Mandy makes it easy with a simple piece of insulation board from the hardware store. They're the same ones we mentioned in this post about hanging cool fabrics for cheap, and we think it's the perfect material to keep cost and weight down on an oversize project of this nature.
