I’ve been obsessed with the Press for Champagne art from Lisa Golightly for a long time and finally decided to make a DIY version inspired by this photo!
I purchased this door bell on Amazon for only $5.88
My first instinct was to do a different version of the original design by using colored paper, so I bought a bunch of different options at Michael’s:
While I loved all of them, it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for and it looked too busy with the frame and lettering, so I decided to return the paper and go for a different route. I also initially recruited my wonderful mom to test out her calligraphy skills while I was home for the holidays and hand write ‘Press for Champagne’ on the paper. We both decided against it in the end and made another trip back to Michaels.
DIY, round two: Ivory paper (with a subtle sparkle and texture) and stick on letters. Much more of a nod to the original and less room for error. Between the stickers and paper options, the cost was under $10.
Then, we simply put the paper into the frame (without the glass) and used a screwdriver to attach the screws securely to the back of the frame.
I’m so thrilled with how it turned out and I’m glad I went back to the original design! The project ended up costing between $20-$25 instead of the original price of the Etsy listing at $62. And a huge thank you to my amazing mom for executing my design and ideas!
