Easy DIY Art

When Dave and I went to Mackinac Island I knew I would get some kind of souvenir. But I have enough t-shirts, hats, and koozies to sink a ship. I ran across a cute tea towel that I just had to have. When I told Dave that my plan was to frame it, he looked at me like I was crazy.

 We had an old frame laying around that would fit but the color wasn't doing it for me so I grabbed some chalkboard paint (that I also happened to have laying around). 

I painted the frame, attached the tea towl to a piece of card board, slipped it behind the glass.

 Done! I love that I have a unique keepsake of our trip to Mackinac Island and we'll always have a reminder of our time in Michigan.

What kind of souvenirs do you pick up when you travel?


  1. adorable! I love that tea towel, and framing it makes it a much better souvenir than a koozie ;)

  2. Love this! I was in Washington, DC, Rehoboth, DE and Alexandria, VA this past spring. I found tea towels for each state! Whoo hoo! I also have glassware from other states I have visited..
