Christmas Wall Art from Farmhouse Gift Bags

There are so many ways to reuse gift bags and one of my favorites is to repurpose them as inexpensive wall art.     

I found this Christmas gift bag at a local shop.    It is made from a heavy duty canvass like paper and had a sweet cow print on each side.   All I had to do was cut it apart and I had 2 inexpensive pieces of wall art.    I even left the handle on each one to create a fun way to hang them on the wall.

I hung the other print at this end of my gallery wall......

I don't know which little calf has the sweetest face!

I am always looking for different ways to display my ever growing collection of Christmas stockings.  Of course my favorite way is to hang them on the mantel,   but I have also hung them on ladders and this year I decided to hang my buffalo check stockings on the iron headboard in the hallway.

I left the existing barn print in the center of my gallery wall and just hung a Christmas banner across the front of it.

I have a picture frame gallery on the opposite wall......

I filled my empty frames with Christmasy things.

This must be a popular!     I found the bag at a local gift shop and the tile came from Hobby Lobby.

Hobby Lobby also had  pig and donkey tiles.

The other end of the hallway is still a work in progress,   but I will be back soon to share it with you guys.

  3. Penny, you can find art in almost anything you encounter! I wish I had your vision to see things outside of the box like you do. You have such an amazing talent in decorating your home to look not only gorgeous, but also a bit whimsical and fun.
