Inexpensive Framed Giraffe Kids Art

I have another fun piece of artwork from our kid’s playroom makeover to share with you today! This Framed Giraffe Kids Art was created simply with a dollar store frame and some paper. It adds a whimsical touch to the room and was very inexpensive to make!

I hope you’re not tired of my playroom projects yet. It’s been so much fun adding bright splashes of color to the kid’s space, since the rest of my house is totally decorated in neutrals! 
I recently added white shelves in our playroom over the toy storage bins, and I wanted some inexpensive artwork to help fill up the shelf space. I got the idea for this sweet giraffe art from NanaCompany and decided to recreate it with scrapbook paper instead of fabric!

I simply cut a giraffe silhouette from some blue polka dot scrapbook paper and glued it to a piece of white card stock. If you’re not the best free-hand drawer (like me!), you can find lots of giraffe shapes on Google Images!
To bump up the cuteness factor, I wrote a sweet message from Mr. Giraffe in a pretty cursive font with a black fine tip Sharpie.

I found a silver 8 x 10 frame from The Dollar Tree (gosh, I love that store!) and framed my little giraffe inside.

Super cute new art for our playroom makeover for a grand total of $1 = Awesome! 
Wouldn’t this be adorable in a baby’s nursery?
