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!

I made mine this weekend and am very pleased with it. While selecting my paper, I came across clear plastic sheets that had a lace effect printed on them. I cut them slightly smaller than some of my solid-colored leaves and layered them. Some I used directly on the painted canvas. The plastic shines in the light and gives an added dimension to the project. I also layered a few of my solids together. I used Modge Podge for the glue only, but did purchase their decoupage brayer and squeegee to help smooth the paper down. I think I may try a paper doliy for some of the cuts on my next one. Thanks for the idea and directions!

Thanks for this great project idea! I finished mine last night, and while it didn't turn out how I had pictured it, I'm quite pleased to have it to hang above my bed for the time being. I wanted it to span 3 canvases, and in trying to do so the flower sort of got a bit out of control in size. I plan on using the same idea (scrap booking paper on canvas) to so one with a different design for my guest room. Thanks again for sharing!

I absolutely love this! I'm getting ready to make mine right now.

Wow! I just found stumbled upon your It's Do-able Blog....and I LOVE it Chica! This project was so do-able even for me whom I often refer to as "Mrs. Wanna-be-Crafty but So-Am-Not!"

Thank you so much for the GREAT ideas!!

February 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSwoozie

I love this idea! I think I will use pictures of my students and mix with the leaf patterns! This will be a memories board for me!!!

February 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRene' White

Do we HAVE to paint the canvas do you think? I think I want it to stay white...will that effect the outcome? Also, with the mod podge....I've used it for wood crafts and the paper had to be mod podged down first...completely covered on the back and then the glue needs to be dry completely or it will start to bubble up....I'm going to give it a try.

February 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAubrey

I just made is, it turned out great! I used Mod Podge and it did not ruin the canvas, of course I had painted the canvas first. I used double sided tape to place the leaves then the Modge Poge sealed them on. I did have to use my a little extra Modge Poge around the edges and us my finger to press it down. Next time I might try to use a glue stick, not sure how well that would work though. Thanks for the great idea!

February 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMegan

I have used the Matte finish Mod Podge and it comes out very nice it gives the art afinished look

I plan on adapting this for my students to make for Valentine's Gifts for their Parents!
It is age appropriate for 15-20 year old learners with autism! I am going to have them glue the precut shapes onto a template. Doesn't matter where what color goes....will post when we are done!

Hi, Just wanted to share this with each of you. Go to your local paint and wall paper store and and ask for their old outdated wall paper books. They will give you arm loads of them for FREE!!!!!!!!! the wall paper samples are GREAT for making this project. Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!

I'm going to do this on a HUGE scale!! I already have an unused canvas waiting for a project to hang above our bed. The bedroom is black, white, grey, and yellow. I'm going to cover the canvas in multiple flowers using those colors. I'm so excited! My boyfriend better run, he's about to help ;-)

February 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

I just made this today! It turned out wonderful! I used spray Mod Podge and it worked perfectly!

February 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLaurissa

Where i use the Mod Podge?

February 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterprorchid19

I did a very similar project (painted canvas, and cut out my nieces' "scribble" art instead of legit scrap book paper) I used mod podge to paste the paper pieces down as well as 2 top coats to seal it all down and it came out great.

February 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCourtney

I have been looking to create a piece of work to hand over our bed and a pair of these woudl be perfect! I love this idea!

February 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLEAH

regarding whether or not to mod podge, has anyone tried applying a coat or two of mod podge to the paper BEFORE cutting, letting it dry so it gives it a little more stability/longevity, and then cut+gluing? i think that's what i might do because i'm DEFINITELY trying this.

February 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTamara

Could wait to try this. Love the way it turned out. Here is my version. I used a 24x36 canvas to go over the bed. Haven't sealed it yet, thinking about using the spray adhesive. It a pic from my facebook so hopefully you can see it.

Thanks for the awesome idea!

February 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMeghan

I am torn. I can't decide if I want to use the glossy or matte finish mod podge. I bought the glossy and now I'm kind of regretting it. Do you think the glossy would look okay?
