Upcylced: magazine cover to wall art

This was not intended to be my first project of the year, but when I received in the mail a promotional magazine from a cosmetics store with a beautiful cover, I knew I wanted to use it in some way.

As the theme seemed to perfectly match the concept of new year goals and all that, I turned it into a piece of wall art that now graces our home office.

This is what the original magazine looked like:

Yep, too pretty to just throw in the trash. I ripped the cover off, cut it to the size I wanted and placed it in an empty frame I had around.

So, yes, my first project of 2019 turned out to be the easiest upcycle ever - which I'm hoping is a good sign.

  1. What an excellent idea! I have been holding on an Easter gift bag because it ripped on one side, but I thought the other would make a great piece of wall art - like this!

    1. Thank you Alexandra! I rarely have time to look through these promotional magazines, but this one really caught my attention and I think it turned out great. You should totally do something similar with your Easter bag!

    1. I've held on to several older and unused frames just like this one, they are perfect for these projects.
