Crocheted Wall Art

While our bathroom remodel is essentially done, the finishing touches are still a work in progress. The walls have been painted for quite some time and still they are mostly bare, save the towel racks and holder, toilet paper holder and mirror. I was thinking about those bare walls in the bathroom, wondering what I wanted to put on them, when I saw this blog post by The Summery Umbrella. LZ did a beautiful job creating wall art using a fern, and I was inspired to frame some leaves of my own. Instead of grabbing some from the trees in our yard, I decided to make leaves.
I found some beautiful leaf patterns in the book, 100 Lace Flowers to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio. I used another pattern from her book to make the flowers on my cabinet door turned chalkboard. This book is awesome by the way!! Sainio has several leaf patterns to choose from, so I decided to crochet the fern, oak, Japanese maple, and silver maple leaves using crochet thread.
After crocheting the leaves, I soaked them in starch and waited until they were dry.
Then I used school glue to mount them onto a white piece of cardstock.
I painted one of my 8″x10″ frames to house the new bathroom wall art.
It already feels better walking into the bathroom with these framed leaves on the walls, not so stark anymore.
