Calendar Wall Art

Out with 2011 and in with 2012 offers opportunity for change in resolutions, goals, personal well-being and of course, calendars. Calendars typically have great, graphic images depending on subject so it's only fitting that we should enjoy the images for more than a month. How? By using the images for wall art.

I will often save magazines, photostock albums and in this case, calendars that may come in handy for future wall art projects.

This wall art ensemble creates a dramatic visual presence due to the repeated linear arrangement of the frames. For more impact they were hung within a silver color block.

The black frames were Walmart "cheapies" in one of those little kiosks you see sitting in your way as you try to maneuver the aisles. I think I paid around $2.00 a piece for them and hung eight total.  Despite the good value, they have nice, sturdy, chunky frames.

Minus the cost of the calendar since it was a gift, this art cost under $20.00. Not bad for a cool, visual statement in a home office.  If your goals for 2012 are to be more conscious of recycling, start with a calendar.  Repurpose it, Reuse it (in new, creative ways!)
