I've been itching to put up new wall decor on the wall going up my stairs. I am so so tired of what I have there right now but I just wasn't sure what to replace it with. While in WalMart this week I came across a package of ten, 8x10 canvases, for $17!
The other materials you'll need:
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brushes
- Scrapbook Paper
I painted my canvas chocolate brown (I had leftover chocolate brown wall paint from a past room-painting project)
Next, I cut out a circle and then a number of leaves from the scrapbook paper. I purchased six different designs that all coordinated with one another. For the leaves I just sketched what I thought looked like a leaf and then when I got it to look the way I wanted it to, I copied it about 20 times.
Once the paint dried I attached my circle and leaves using a glue-stick. For the leaves that went to the edge of the canvas I cut them off where the canvas stopped. Below is a picture of the flower after glueing each piece down with the glue stick.
The last step is to paint over/seal the design with modge podge. Below is a link to the mod podge I purchased from Amazon. I ran my brush in all directions to make sure that each piece of paper had a firm seal on it.
