Make An Inspiration Wall!

(This post is part of my Focus Your Craft & Soul Blog Event – see the list of all the posts HERE!)

For the last post of today I have another way to gather inspiration (like my Pot Of Inspiration last night). This one is making an inspiration wall:

This was so much fun – and it brightens up my craft space as well as giving me a place to visit for inspiration!

I didn’t think I’d have anywhere I could make an inspiration wall in my craft space. I say ‘my craft space’ but it’s actually our dining room really… it’s just a dining room full of crafty stuff! Two walls are taken up by big patio doors and windows, which is why I love to craft in there – it’s so light:

Another wall is mostly taken up by my Expedit unit and glitter shelves:

Then I realised I could use the back of a door to add my inspiration pieces to! I chose to use this door, as it opens inwards, so when the door is open it will be hidden:

I gathered a variety of bits of inspiration, including THIS PRINT, some postcards, a wool-wrap piece I made at college, a piece of 12×12 paper, some empty frames, washi tape and ribbon, a photo, some Amy Tangerine Creative Handbook pages, and the latest Mollie Makes magazine for the ‘Geo Origami’ page to make some 3D triangles:

Plus some trusty Blu Tack to stick some items up with!

Then I just kept adding to the door until I was happy. You can watch me putting it together in this video if you like (there’s no voiceover, just music):

 

You can also watch it on YouTube HERE.

I love how the very different pieces all came together!

One thing to point out is that I stuck a little piece of Blu Tack at the bottom of each frame to hole it to the door – when it was just hanging with ribbon it would have swung about all over the place, so the Blu Tack keeps it where it should be!

Be Inspired:

Make some 3D origami triangles or other shape

Stick things to your next project using washi tape to hold it on

Hang a frame with ribbon – in your home or on a scrapbook page

Have you got somewhere that you could make an inspiration wall in your house?

Thanks for joining me today, I’ll see you again at 10pm tomorrow!
