Wall Art! Rub-ons

I just love these Stampin' Up! rub-ons and wish I had more wall space to put more of them up. I did have problems with this one. I had only bought one set. I cut the knife, fork and spoon out separately so I could spread them apart a bit more than they originally were. I did get them on the wall and they were fairly straight but they weren't wide enough for the area. SO I ordered more. Fortunately I was able to remove the ones off the wall cleanly. I set them on the counter to think about how to get them up there evenly. I marked and measured where I wanted the first set to go and I got them in place. Then it dawned on me to use the backing to put the ones on that I had just removed. And I took the next one that was to go up and laid it under the backing so I had a "template" to put them back where they needed to be to be straight and even with the other ones. I rescued my images and was a happy camper. I got the other two sets up on the wall and was much happier with it like that than just the single set. It filled up that area of the wall and it looks nice up there. It's such a fun way to decorate without any mess.

I bought hubby a guitar one and we have yet to get it put up in his office. I am hoping to get to that by the end of the month and I'll be sure to take pictures to show you!

Click on the labels below to see my other rub-on. I had put the big tree up in my workroom. It's SO cool to have it on the wall. Last year I put blue birds on some of the leaves. I was going to put a red cardinal in the tree this past winter but I forgot. And I wanted to add snowflakes but I didn't have time to do that either.

Every time Stampin' Up! comes up with a new bunch of rub-ons I always find something I like. I have a bedroom I need to get painted and maybe by the time it's done I will have a wall I can put up a new one on! They are just so fun and easy to put on and take off!

Isn't the wall pretty? The plaque thing in the "before" photo was a kitchen measurements "thing" that I had gotten for a gift many years ago and I had put it up there. It was so high up that you couldn't read the measurements or conversions! Nice place for that, huh? LOL

Anyway I LOVE the knife, fork and spoon rub-ons SO much better!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I love your rub-ons, Wanda. It does look nice. It is funny that on the plaque you had up before it looks like there were spoons on that too.
