It's doable...the flower wall art

 What started it all...

 This was inspired by another Pinterest viewer, of which I've tried desperately to track down, I'm in the works though!-- The search comes to an end!! Thank you, CANDICE for such a beautiful and fun craft!! I have loved seeing all of the flowers that others have come up with :)

 

This is quite an easy project and it cost me a total of $13! I went to Michael's and bought the following:

-1 12x16 inch canvas $5.99 (with 40% off coupon, originally $9.99)

-1 Artist's Loft 4 oz acrylic grey paint $3.99 (I used the excess on this project)

-5 pieces of scrap book paper $3 total

I had the following:

-Mini hot glue gun and glue sticks (Michael's has these for about $3)

-Foam paint brushes (Michael's has these for about $1.50)

-Mod Podge (Please read reader comments before using)

STEPS:

1) Paint your canvas. Put the paint in a disposable container and paint it on, it will be see through at this time.  Before you add a second coat, you must let it dry completely or it'll come off when you brush over it.

2) While your first coat is drying, cut a 2 inch wide strip off the bottom of each of your scrap book papers. Don't measure these cuts, just eyeball them.

3) Then cut that strip into 2-3 inch rectangles.

4) Starting at one corner of the square make a curved cut to the opposite corner.

5) And back again.

6) Ta-da you have a leaf now! Repeat this process and make them smaller and larger... I found that I made too many large ones (over 3 inches) and had to scale them down later. 

7) Once you have a good sized pile of them, add your second coat of paint to your canvas.  Remember to paint the edges too!

8) Let your canvas dry completely (I watched a movie).  And begin to lay the leaves out starting with your center circle. (You can follow my picture below to get you started).

9) As you lay them out you might have to trim some leaves smaller or cut other larger ones.  If you look closely I started with smaller leaves and as I worked my way out I used larger ones. 

10) Now comes the fun part (sarcastism). Carefully pick up the center circle and stick some hot glue on it and put it back.  Work your way out doing the same things on the leaves.  When it gets to the edge  wrap it over.

That's it!

IMPORTANT: Use Mod Podge wisely, I did not use Mod Podge because I liked the matte finish.  One reader used it and said it ruined it because of the canvas.  However, another reader used it and said it came out just fine.  I would test the Modge Podge, (maybe on a side corner) before painting over the whole thing.

I'd love to see your creations and hear your comments so send 'em my way!!

 

Like this project? You might also enjoy this one!

There is a paint on sealer for canvas. Let the second coat of paint dry, paint on the sealer and let it completly dry. It's better to let it dry for a couple of days. You shoul be able to decoupage without smearing.

Made this today. Hot glue=not my friend. Spray adhesive=not my friend. Glue sitck (at first)=not my friend. 1st - Had one hell of a time trying the hot glue gun. Maybe mine is just a POS as I have had it since college (it's been a minute). 2nd - spray adhesive (left "spotty" marks on the scrapbook paper). 3rd - glue stick. It worked great, if you can place something with a little weight on it for a minute (I used the spray adhesive bottle, guess I didn't waste my money on that, right?!?)

I wish I knew how to post a picture on here. I'm a little biased, but I can't wait to hang this in my basement! It will look great with the gray walls!

Would this work with fabric instead of scrap paper? I imagine it would still stick.

February 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBethany

I just did this, Instead of the hot glue I used tack glue. also I put the center of my flower on the side. to make it abstract. Thanks for your ideas. It was fun

First, thanks for the inspiration! How pretty! Second, I did try this with Mod Podge and it turned out beautiful. I just wanted to mention that because I read that someone had some issues with that portion of it. Also, instead of hot glue, I used a glue stick. It held in place perfectly so I could apply the mod Podge and didn't leave the paper bumpy looking. Thanks again!

I got everything I needed for this project yesterday - and the supply store had 12x12 on sale - so I'm going to do this design over 4 12x12 (so it will be 24x24 when I'm done). Hope it turns out nice!

you could also use a spray adhesive as it would cover the entire area but make sure to have good air flow and lay down newspapers for you spray area...easier cleanup.

February 2, 2012 | Unregistered Commentershelly

I am by no means a craftsy person but this looks like fun. Yours came out awesome !!!!!

February 2, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterkris

I just bought canvases at Michaels today, before i found this idea on Pinterest. Perfect timing!!! I cant wait to get started on it! I will use glue dots and double sided squares for the adhesives. will post on Pinterest when finished, and here, if i can figure out how!

I completed my picture a few days ago and LOVE it! I did not Mod Podge over it. I did notice that a permanent glue stick worked just fine on the thinner scrapbook paper, but with the thicker cardstock paper it required a glue gun. I wish I could upload a picture to share! Mine is 24x30, I painted the canvas chocolate brown and then used a color combo of ivory, brown, red, green and light blue. It looks amazing! Thanks! :)

I did this the other day and it came out awesome!! So many people have commented on it, and some want me to make one for them! Super easy and so much fun! Thanks for sharing!! :)

February 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKariB

Can't wait to try this... bought some of my supplies today...thanks so much for the inspiration:)

February 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

Thanks for all of the replies everyone! Your tips and modifications are much appreciated!! Several people have asked about doing this with fabric instead. I have not tried this, however, I would just advise you to be careful if you still choose to use hot glue as it would be easier to burn yourself and create the 'bumps' underneath. I am working on adding a feature to my site where you can upload your versions of these projects, so to all of you who have done this... take a pic!! I'd love to see it :)

I love this idea! It looks beautiful. I also really like some of the ideas of differnt materials to use in different way form all the comments given.

February 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDiana S.

This is how mine turned out, a few imperfections but all in all, Im pleased. Thanks for the great idea>

February 5, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermelissa

I loved this idea the minute I saw it, rushed out bought all of the supplies at Micheals and A Pile of Scrap and went to work. I also did a variation of this and did 2 small canvas' 6x6 painted them in dark brown and created a heart and inside the larger heart I glued smaller hearts as a filler. Turned out great for Valentines Day !! Or all year long ! Looking forward to more of your ideas !! Thanks !

I am going to try this with fabric flower pieces instead of paper. I'll use some heavy weight upholstery fabric I have in a dark grey for the background. I'll iron the squares of 'leaf' fabrics, from my stash of prints & hand dyes, onto a sheet of Wonder under 'light', cut out the leaves, make the arrangement onto the base fabric, then iron the leaves on. I'll finish with freeform designs I stitch with my sewing machine. Then mount onto a wooden stretcher frame. Thanks for the idea.

I agree - do not use Modge Podge over the top! I was so excited about it and it looked so great, but the Modge Podge caused the edges of my petals to curl up from the wetness. SO disappointed!!!

February 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterShanna

you can get matte Modge Podge that works a lot better on the canvas. It also helps to thin it out with a bit of water so you can paint it on easier.
