Hello friends!  You may remember that this time last year, I participated in the Knock Out Knock Off series with some of my very talented friends {click here to see my projects from last year}!  #knockoutknockoffs  Well, it's that time again this year!  I am participating in the Knock Out Knock Off series with a phenomenal group of talented bloggers.  Each month, we will be bringing you knock off projects from some of your favorite retailers: Anthropologie, Land of Nod, CB2 and Crate and Barrel.

I hope you joined us last month when we created awesome projects inspired by Anthropologie–you can check that out here.  This month, we are tackling projects inspired by Land of Nod, which is one of my absolute favorite children's decor stores!  Buckle your seat belts….you are in for a treat!  BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE PROJECTS FROM MY FRIENDS AT THE END OF THIS POST–THEY ARE AWESOME!  #knockoutknockoffs  This post contains some affiliate links.  Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

Knock Out Knock Offs 2015

A lot of “kid's” stores out there are just a little too cutesy for my taste, if you know what I mean.  That is why I love Land of Nod so much.  It's full of more modern decor that is loved by parents and kids!  I recently fell in love with this customizable art work from Land of Nod.

Isn't that cute?!  But it's pretty pricey at $189.  So, I decided to use the Land of Nod print as inspiration for my own DIY version. Yep, you can make your own geometric DIY monogram art easily at home FOR FREE!  Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions.

That's it! Print it off and pop it in a frame {I already had a frame, but you can snap one up on Amazon for around $11, like this one}.   How easy is that? Here is the finished result. Isn't it cute?!  And I saved $189 making it myself :)

    Amazingly cute project! I am in the middle of a basement reno and was searching for diy wall art projects for the kids zone. I love this and can’t wait to get started! I am curious though, for my daughter her name starts with E so easy to do but my son’s name starts with S and I am at a loss as to how to create this letter. Any advice would be great! thanks for your post, love your site!!

    • Tasha says:

      Honestly, you just have to draw it out and use your imagination! Google geometric ‘E’ for good ideas. Good luck!

  2. Carol says:

    I’m looking to do something with a solid white, front door that faces inside the livingroom that is painted taupe. Maybe stencil or distress? Any ideas?

  3. This is such a cool piece! I am a huge fan of personalized art and you did a fantastic job. I’m sure your little girls love them.

  4. […] Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body was super excited to participate in a challenge to knock off an item from one of her favorite children’s home décor stores, Land of Nod. She had fallen in love with a piece of customizable wall art with a steep price tag of $189. However, Tasha was able to replicate it at home for FREE and even shares a step-by-step video tutorial of the process so you can make one too. I actually like Tasha’s personalized wall art even better than her inspiration! […]

  5. Katie says:

    This is adorable and I like it even more than the original! Gotta love the savings too :)

  6. Oh my goodness, so cute! I love the way yours turned out! It was such a great idea to include a video! I am so glad to participate in this series with everyone – I’m always blown away by how creative and talented the results are!
