Glittered Home State CanvasSupplies
glittered scrapbook paper
printed copy of YOUR home state (bonus points if your home state is TEXAS) ;)
1) Gather supplies 2) Flip your state over and trace it onto the backside of your glitter paper 3) Cut that baby out (yay Texas!) 4) Take your canvas and begin placing washi stripes down the length of it, horizontally. Make sure you wrap the tape over the sides of your canvas, as well. I decided NOT to space my tape evenly, because I like things to be random. But, random is totally and completely optional. In fact, this entire project is totally and completely optional 5) "Paint" the entire surface of the canvas (including the sides) with your decoupage medium. 6) Paint the backside of your state (ahem, Texas) with the same medium. 7) Place it on the canvas. Use your ruler if you need help with centering. 8) This is my "professional" tip: weigh the edges of the glitter paper down with something heavy(ish), like oranges. Let the paper dry before removing the oranges :). I'm such a pro.
See? Easy and painless! My friend, Jill, actually gave me all the supplies for this project. She made a similar canvas for her tween's bedroom makeover. Then she invited me over to help her arrange the gallery wall in the new room. And, I shared that wall over on Instagram.
Are you dying?? Talk about some gorgeous gold happenings!
(I have to say, my friend should blog. She and her posse MADE that wraparound Ikat headboard!)
Also, I should note, Jill painted black stripes on her canvas versus washi taping them (like me). So, remember that paint is definitely an option, too!
Are you ready to bust out the gold?? I'm loving gold accents right now!
