Today we're featuring another fun DIY wall art project we tackled for Nash's nursery. We always loved all the 'made in' signs we spotted all over the place but as soon as I spotted this star covered canvas at our local thrift store, I knew we had a DIY project up our sleeves! Read on for the tutorial!
SCORE! $4.99 at my local Savers Thrift!
Sketched out the words made and in on contact paper that we had laying around from our laundry room makeover HERE.
Cut them out and stuck them on the canvas.
Found a map of Texas on my iPhone and free handed it onto the contact paper too.
The finished product, pre-paint. Look at all those pencil marks, ha! It was actually really hard to get a good Texas!
Now Walt went to work spraying the whole canvas with black spray paint.
We let the paint dry overnight and I was literally giddy to rip off the contact paper and see how the project turned out. We figured we'd only be $4.99 in the hole if it was horrible. And then we'd use it regardless, because you know how we like to cover old canvases in fabric (more on that HERE!)
Peeling off the letters and we're lookin' good, people!
Creating our Austin star!
And voila, I'm in love.
Walt measuring where to hang our new art.
Check out how adorable it is in Bubba's little room!
Here's a closer look! Love this project and you could totally wrap a canvas in a star print fabric and do the same exact project for you wee one. I also think this doesn't have to only fall into the nursery art category...this would be a great piece of art in a living room art gallery display or a perfect conversation piece for your kitchen.
