Homemade Decor

We rearranged our living room, and ended up with a completely blank wall that looked very empty. My cheap solution? Make my own wall art!

For about $20 I got the artists canvas and the paint to match our decor. After using a sponge roller (awesome!) to apply the base layer (x3), I used a Cool Whip container and a Ricotta Cheese container to dip in the beige paint to create perfect circles. Then I used a paint brush to fill in three of the circles -- odd numbers are appealing to the eye &hearts:

On either side are heart-shaped candle-holders ($5 for both at Ross) with vanilla-scented 3" candles from Wal-Mart. It fills the wall and I love it!
