Cheap art

Just a couple of quick ideas for today. There are lots of ways to put up something on your walls to make them look less bare without spending much money.

The common one---framed posters.

Take a really pretty card or scene from a calendar or magazine and frame it.

Family photos. This is a lot easier to do these days with digital cameras. Get good ones then go have them printed on a good quality color printer, then frame.

Make and hang a quilt or applique fabric hanging.

Shelves with a few knick knacks or a theme like old farm implements.

Look for art and frames at yard sales.

Hook a rug and hang it.

Embroider a picture, frame, and hang it.

The one thing I'd suggest is try to pick things that aren't jarring with each other.
