diy: personalised wall art


I often see art for sale and mutter under my breath, ‘I could make that myself…’.

I really wanted a frame with lettered playing cards and I knew it would be easy to make my own, but there was one snag; I had no idea where to get hold of the cards.

I eventually stumbled upon the answer and discovered what I needed were LEXICON PLAYING CARDS. I bought mine from eBay. Next I needed great backing paper. I chose Laura Ashley Josette in Dove Grey (Available on sale here). I put them altogether in a black picture frame from Wilkinson and I was good to go.


An easy craft that took me 10 minutes to complete, my new piece of artwork has pride of place in my living room.


Plus, I have loads more cards left to spell something else. Cool huh?!
