My husband and I are in the process of adopting a boy and girl from the Democratic Republic of Congo and my "nesting" instincts have really began kicking in! I want our little girl to have a super cute & girly room, but we have to make that happen on a super tight budget. I've been admiring some of the cute Bird and Tree bedding & room decor at Pottery Barn and Target and decided we could just buy the sheets and then I could make my own wall art and accessories. I had some old unused canvas in the basement so this became my first project!
Fabric Scraps Tree Wall Art
Here are the supplies you'll need:
- Blank canvas (any size)
- Fabric scraps
- Mod Podge
- Paints & paintbrushes
(I used acrylic paint: brown, green, pink, & vanilla, but you can use whatever you have & do this in any color scheme!)
1. I started out by painting the entire canvas a vanilla color and blending in some pink around the edges. I painted all 4 sides of the canvas a bright pink color, which will help it really stand out when it's on the wall.
2. Then I painted a basic tree trunk with branches. (You can lightly pencil it on first before you paint!) Then I added some simple flowers around the bottom. To make the top of the flowers just run your skinny paintbrush in a circular pattern from the outer edge inward.
Super cute Wall Art for your little girly's room for CHEAP!
