DIY Wall Art

>> 3.02.2014

After setting up the pegboard station in the playroom, I thought that the space above it was definitely missing something. Looking through my stash, I didn't find anything cool enough to go there, so I decided to make my own, using supplies I already had. 


I have been in love with this piece of art for a while and decide to try to recreate the colorful, overlapping, bold text style. 


To start, I printed the letters and then cut them out with an x-acto knife. I then placed them on the paper the way I wanted and taped it down. I wanted the letters to overlap, so I made sure that the letters were placed were overlapping parts were visible.

 
I then painted the overlapped sections and let it dry.

 Next, I took off the O and B papers which covered up the other letters and painted those. Then I removed the letters I just painted and let them dry, and then added back the O and B and painted those.



Lastly, I got a small paint brush and touched up the sloppy spots.


I then put it in a 16x20" frame I had in storage and hung it! And there you have it. A free, thirty minute piece of art.

I thought the peg board was clever but the matching art is fabulous!
