New Blue Wall art

Posted on January 12, 2012 at 9:00 PM

Somewhere in switching over my cameras I lost my step by step pics for this project... sorry!! It was really really easy though and only took a few steps!



Any size canvas will work and really any design will work. I lightly sketched my design first so that I didnt have to free hand anything. Once I had it all sketched out I used the below glue to trace over my lines. It was a little hard getting the hang of the flow of the glue but after a few mins it wasnt to bad.


I let it all dry over night and then sprayed it down with some blue spray paint. I thought I would only need/want one layer but ended up going with 2 in the end.


Once the spray paint was dry I took some silver paint LIGHTLY over the edges to highlight the designs.


I used some silver thumb tacks to hold the ribbon in place since I didnt want to just hang it on the wall as is. Once it was all said and done I didnt spend a dime. I had all the stuff on hand BUT they are fairly cheap products - glue, spraypaint,canvas - AND you can customize this to any designs or colors your lil' heart desires!!


This is the first time I have EVER used glue for something like this - not gluing lol! Have you ever used glue for somthing like this or any other ways?


Thanks for stopping in! - Jessica

This is so cool! I am so surprised that you were able to create this with GLUE. Who would have thought? How did you get the word "love" printed on there?

Yeah I need to revise my post - I totally forgot about the word on there OOPS! The letters were just stickers I pressed on prior to spray painting and then pulled off. I thought it would look good white but some of the spray paint leaked under the stickers. I just ended up filling the words in with silver paint.
