DIY Artwork

I am not an artist.
In fact, fairly far from one!
But, I saw this on The Nester and thought,
"Heck, I can do that!"

Plus, I needed something for my mantel...something with texture...something that would pop without the use of color...but, mostly something cheap! So, with a glue gun in one hand and spray paint in the other, I created a little artwork. It's not beautiful, by any means, but it's super cool!

The hardest part was waiting for the paint to dry!
I took a small canvas I had on hand and painted it with Elmer's glue. While it was drying, I took a fork and scraped from top to bottom to mess up the smoothness of {what would soon be} the background. When that completely dried, I made the large lines with a little hot glue, not really worrying about making them perfect. Then, I sprayed it ivory!

I think it's adorable and fun...just love how different it is! Not to mention, this project cost ZERO moolah because I already had everything in my craft closet! Whoo Hoo!

How awesome would this be done on a huge canvas for an empty wall!?!

That looks awesome! I would have never came up with that idea! It looks fabulous, I do think a huge one would be awesome!
