Reduce, Reuse, Re-Lilly.

8:00 AM

Here are Marley Lilly, we love anything DIY.  And...who doesn't love Lilly Pulitzer?  When we saw Anna Kate's blog at High Cotton about turning her old Lilly agenda pages into a work of art, we just had to share!!

Crafting for my new apartment continues...I blame Pinterest. I saw a pin for how to create coasters using old Lilly Pulitzer agenda pages (totally plan on doing), and I figured why not use them for something bigger? I had a vision for a large, modge-podged, Lilly-themed piece of artwork to adorn my walls, and today this finally came to life.

I recently ordered the new Lilly Pulitzer 2013 Jumbo Agenda (LOVE it),

so I didn't hesitate to rip out the pages of my old one for decorating purposes.


I had an old Lilly shopping bag still laying around, so I decided to use that as the center of the piece.

Cardboard backing from the frame served as the base, and using (homemade) 'modge podge' I applied the pages.

If you're interested in how to create and use homemade modge podge, see my previous post here.


I have discovered the keys to using modge podge are: use sparingly (light coats, please),

keep a rolling pin nearby to smooth things out, and let dry completely before applying another coat.

Follow those simple steps and...


Voilà! Beautiful, Lilly-esque, artwork.
