Hand-Painted Wall Art - The Easy Way

Pin It!

The drawing is Saturday!


I shared this last year through a blog swap,
but in case you missed it, here's an
easy & inexpensive way to create wall art.
This was a project I did for a little girl's room.
STEP 1: 
Find a simple picture you'd like to copy.
STEP 2:
Copy the picture onto transparency film.
This only works on a lazer printer! 
If you only need a few sheets, you can buy them
very inexpensively at the copy shop.
STEP 3:
Borrow an overhead projector from your local
school or church & project the image onto the wall.
{TIP: This works best on a white wall. Or if you do it
on a colored wall, use white paint for the artwork.}
STEP 4:
Lightly draw around the image with a pencil.
You don't have to use every detail - just the parts you want.
STEP 5:
Color in with paint, making sure to cover the pencil lines.
{The green paint color on these branches is represented
on other walls in the room.}
STEP 6:
Enjoy!
COST:
$1 for the transparency sheets
{We already had the paint.}

  1. GREAT reminder on doing this! I have such a hard time settling on what "picture" to do. I suppose the "ennie meenie" method isn't a great one when designing. Hope the first few weeks of 2012 are treating you right... I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you this year, and what delightful things you have planned to teach us!!! jules
