We have actually been working on a number of things in the past few months, but this post is just about the first one I have actually completed. You can look forward to my posts about our new bed, my version of the Ikea stool learning tower, an ottoman, Halloween costumes, and probably a few others I have forgotten.
This wall art was inspired by this photo that has been floating around Pinterest. There weren't any written instructions, so I had to infer the steps from the pictures (and google "KLEJ") but my husband and I did this project together and called it date night with a cup of cider or hot cocoa to wrap up a step. It took us a few date nights--which was perfect--and is now hanging on the wall as a reminder of some good time together.
- canvases of your choice (we used four 14 x 11 inch)
- acrylic paint in a base color--or four
- repositionable spray adhesive (we used Krylon easy-tack)
- spray paint for top color (we used a hammered copper metallic)
- pressed leaves, flowers, weeds, etc.
Our family outing involved collecting branches on the way to the park. David had his own special collection of leaves. Once we got home, we put them under some boards and several cans of paint that were just sitting in the garage when we moved in to press them flat. We left them for 3 days.
