Wall Heart Art
For my daughter’s new big girl room, I created a piece of art using paint chips. I had fun doing this and it was so easy and inexpensive.I started by collecting 40-50 paint chips. I tried to be discreet while doing this at Canadian Tire so as not to look like a hoarder or a really indecisive painter. Anyway, who really cares – they are free!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Canvas – lots at the Dollarstore
- Paint and paint brush (for the background colour) here’s a pretty pink option from Benjamin Moore
- Paint Chips
- Tracing Paper and pencil, or paper punch – Amazon – Paper Punch
- Heart shape to trace, – printables here Hearts
I painted a white canvas in a light, light shade of pink. I gave it the messy, sloppy paint look.
I then traced and cut-out heart after heart. If you want to use a paper punch instead. I discovered that I had too many hearts to fit on my canvas so I made a word memory game with the left overs. My 4 year old son loved it while we played on the back deck together.
Once the canvas was dry, I glued the hearts to it and had an instant piece of art that my daughter loves. It is going to look great in her room! I painted her walls light grey so this will add a pop of colour. Ta da…
