I’m a big fan of bold, colorful wall art. As a crafter, I also like to coordinate my wall decor with the theme of the room. As I’m transitioning my son’s room from a nursery to a preschooler’s room, I’m keeping the color scheme but changing out the theme, and moving from a circus theme to a kaleidoscope of color. I drew inspiration from the colors in the curtain presently in the room to make a fun piece of wall art. I simplified the project by using Oly*Fun fabrics and a die cutting machine. Here’s how you can make beautiful wall art in minutes.
This post first appeared at Fairfield World, where I am on the Design Team.
- Oly*Fun Fabric (I used Bubblegum, Kiwi, LemonDrop, Orchid, and Sky Blue)
- Stretched Canvas
- Die Cutting Machine and Die
- Mod Podge
**Oly*Fun is now readily available where you buy fabric – if at Joann, Hobby Lobby or Walmart. Look for it today!
Step two: Run the fabric and die through your die cutting machine to cut your shape. What I love about using Oly*Fun in my die cutting machine is that the edges are clean and never fray!
Step four: Use Mod Podge to adhere the shapes to the canvas. I lifted one shape, brushed on Mod Podge, and pressed the shape onto the canvas.
Repeat until the canvas is covered, and set the project aside to dry. I wrapped the excess over the edge of the canvas, but you could also just trim off the excess. Once the project is dry, you’re ready to hang it up. What a fun, easy way to make a bold, colorful statement in a room!
