DIY Wall Art – Pray more, Worry less

DIY wall art

So, I found this amazing 3 x 5 foot seascape with a gorgeous, ornate frame at a yard sale and I knew right away that I wanted to revamp it for our home. Hubby and I spent a lot of time talking about what message we wanted on it and ultimately settled on Pray more, Worry less. It’s a nice daily reminder that no matter what is troubling us the Lord is aware and in charge. We don’t need to spend so much time worrying because it’s in His hands.

And now for the tutorial:


1 vintage painting

painter’s tape

2 colors acrylic paint


1″ foam paintbrush


1. Use your painter’s tape to write out a message or block out a design

2. Paint over the painting – I did it with a swirly brush stroke but you could do just about any type – you could also do this with spray paint


3. When the paint is almost dry but still tacky, pull the tape off and let it dry overnight.


4. paint on whatever extra touches you want – this is where I painted out worry less :)


5. let it dry and hang it up

This is kind of a cheater post. Remember my stick wreath I made around Easter? And remember those flowers I made out of Kleenex tissue? Well, I combined them and…

Every so often I’ll go for something over the top decorated, but usually I just like simple. And may I make a confession?

Be prepared I’m about to offend everyone … I don’t like felt wreaths. I think they’re…. tacky…

I know, *gasp* right? It’s not that I don’t like the felt flowers on them, but the ones that are all wrapped in felt? Bleh! Well, now that I’ve got that off my shoulders :)

Have a great spring everyone!
