DIY Maharam Memory Game Wall Art + Giveaway-CLOSED


I’m always looking for DIY artwork opportunities for my home because I can never decide on, or commit to, the ‘real stuff’. A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to be given the cutest memory sets by Maharam fabric reps in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh (Thanks Miriam and Donghee!) So…this is one I did with one of them….

What you’ll need:
1. Memory Game of Your Choice-I’ve included links to the one I used above and a few others below.
2. Pencil
3. Double-sided tape
4. Ruler
5. 16″ x 20″ Poster Frame (no mat needed for this project) -I’ve used a Nielsen Bainbridge frame found here. It comes with a nice 2-ply mountboard for attaching the tiles.

Now onto the particulars….
1. Determine the center of your mountboard. For mine, I measure in 8″ side-to-side and 10″ top-to-bottom.
2. Lightly draw a line down the center of the board both ways.
3. Lay out your tiles 4 across and 5 down starting from the center line you lightly drew, working your way outward.
4. Adhere the tiles with double-sided tape. I leave approximately 1/4″ between each tile. You will end up with a border of about 2-3/4″ on the sides and 3-1/4″ on the top and bottom.

5. Reassemble the mountboard back into the frame and enjoy your museum quality (those patterns really are in a museum, you know 🙂 quality artwork.
