Recycle old Jenga wood pieces to make a hanging scroll from recycled materials.

Supplies Needed for Hanging Scroll Art:

Art (painting, calligraphy or child's doodle)
4 Recycled Wooden Strips (of the same size)
8 inches Bakers Twine
Hot Glue/Gun
Paper Cutter
Wood Cutter

Supplies needed for a hanging scroll sign: Wood game piece, watercolor floral art, hot glue and hot glue gun, bakers twine and paper cutter.

Step 1 for Hanging Scroll:

Begin by using the paper cutter to trim the paper slightly less wide than your wood strips. Or...use a power tool to cut some scrap wood strips into pieces a little wider than your desired art piece. Just a quarter of an inch difference is perfect.

*Hint: This was made with knock-off Jenga Game wood pieces!

This watercolor piece was a fun study I did while on vacation, sitting poolside while my kids swam. I love how it blends together.
