Wall Treatments

Need a spring project? How about decorating a home or office wall? Here's a photo from an article on how one workplace livened up their wall space.

Any idea what they're doing? You'll have to read the article to find out!

I image you can replicate any cross-stitch design on a wall using colored sticky notes. Affix and coat them with a gel medium or Modge Podge, and you'll have a permanent mural.

Crafters know about our great collection of fiber arts books, but, if you don't, look in the 746.44 section for ones on cross-stitch designs and patterns. Here are a few to pick from:

Engelbreit, Mary. Mary Engelbreit Cross-Stitch for All Seasons. [746.44 EBG]

Hasler, Julie S. 500 Alphabets in Cross Stitch. [746.44 HAS]

101 Folk Art Designs for Counted Cross-Stitch and Other Needlecrafts. [746.44 ONE]
