Today’s fall decorating idea is to create custom artwork.
Last year I was on the hunt for a painting for our mantle. After searching in every store I could possibly think of, I realized that I wasn’t going to find what I was looking for at a price I could afford.
So, I created my own artwork. I bought a canvas and 4 tubes of paint.
To start out, I painted the striped background. Then, I printed out several leaf shapes, cut them out and used them as templates. I traced the shape onto the canvas and used the paint to color them in. What a fun and simple art project.
Do you have any interesting ideas on creating mantle art?
