Today was a loooong day, but that’s a good thing. I was super productive cleaning, purchasing things for the house and getting ready for our special house guest this weekend.
When I got home from shopping I was too exhausted to create new vegetable smoothie recipes and felt like crafting instead.
I saw this project on Instagram 6 months ago and thought it was an awesome idea. Since I had to go to a few hardware stores I raided their paint samples. I was a little nervous but nobody said anything as I gathered over 30 colorful little rectangles. I already had the canvas and my trusty glue gun is never far from my reach.
Check it out!
What you need:
1-2 blank canvases
Hot glue gun or any clear drying glue
(Grab 5 shades of 5 different colors)
Separate paint samples according to color
I went light to dark, you can do anything you want here
The first row is the hardest
Glue the first paint sample onto canvas and allow 30 seconds to dry
Glue the second paint sample onto canvas spacing them about 2 inches apart
Continue gluing paint samples spacing them 2 inches apart until you get to the 5th sample, that should complete the row
Using the first row as a guild start with your next color and glue paint samples onto canvas
Continue until you run out of canvas,
I put 2 canvases together to create a bigger picture
Use glue gun to secure all paint samples to canvas
Trim any access
This DIY craft only took me 10 minutes to create and would be great for kids
That’s all today folks!
Peace & Love,
