Bus scroll art

I just love those vintage bus scrolls that have been showing up in magazines for the last couple of years , but they are just so very expensive . So when I spotted a bus scroll tea towel in my favourite local shop nest a couple of weeks ago for only $5.95 I thought I might just whip me up a little bus scroll art for the kitchen.

So I started off with a piece of board I had laying around

And I just used some thumbtacks to attach it to the back . Too easy .....Ok its a little wonky if you look real close but no one has noticed yet ...or they're too polite to say!

Nest also has an online store if your interested ....seriously go take a look . I could happily move right on in to this shop ....there's even a bed upstairs.

  1. I love them it looks great !

  2. Thanks Sherrie , I'm pleased with how it turned out. x

  3. I'm so going to copy you!

    That tea towel has my current home town, the town I grew up in, the town I went to uni in, and the town I met my hubby in.

    I've been looking for some artwork for our entry and I think this would be perfect.

    I'm off to buy a tea towel now. Thanks for sharing :-)

  4. I'm so glad you liked it Tricia. Yes it has my current home town too . xx
