DIY Floral Art

You may have noticed the colorful and whimsical art featured in my last post:


This was something my friend and her daughter made for her room, and it was a great way to get her daughter involved in decorating her new room.  They started out with a square canvas and brushed on shades of blue for the background.


She knew she wanted a floral theme to coordinate with the bedding.  She added the “stems” of the flowers in a free-form shape.


Then, to make it easy for little hands, she used a variety of items from around the house to stamp circles on the canvas to be the “flowers.”  Just use your imagination and don’t be afraid to experiment with colors and shapes.


And some glitter glue for accent.  These glitter glue sticks from Hobby Lobby are great for kids because they are easy to handle and don’t make a lot of mess.


Stamping and painting:


Almost done, just need to go back and add some leaves and accents :


It looks so much more fabulous in person, you can really see the little glitter accents and the colors really pop and bring the room together.  Best of all, her daughter was so proud of her project and will enjoy it for years to come!
