that I made for my daughter's room...she loves the chalk-art look!
To get started, I gathered my supplies:
Tombow's Xtreme Tape Runner, Glue Pen and Fastener Tabs;
DCWV's Chalk-Art Stack and May Art's Ribbon and Pom Pom Trim
The thing that I love most about crafting is improvising!
Nothing makes me happier (well, almost) than upcycling or recycling an item!
I rummaged around in my supplies and found a wooden crate-type box and an 8X10
flat canvas. The box wasn't quite as wide, so I trimmed the canvas down with a
heavy-duty box cutter.
Of course, you can purchase the canvas blocks and achieve the same look!
To the wooden slats on the sides of the crate, I added the Xtreme permanent adhesive.
Next, I cut some of the Chalk-Art paper into strips and adhered to the sides:
I wanted the texture of the canvas to show through, so I decided to paint it rather than
cover it entirely with paper. I gave it a coating of lime green and then cut one of the cute
Chalk-Art subway-art style prints out and adhered it with the Fastener Tabs.
I chose these tabs so that the subway art could be changed out with other pieces
that can be found on the same sheet!
I used the Tombow Glue Pen to add the small die-cut letters to the scroll shape.
A couple of small knotted ribbon was added to the sides of the scroll so that it
appears to be hanging from the chalkboard sign :)
I also trimmed the edge of the canvas with pom pom trim by May Arts.
Now it's all finished and ready for hanging or sitting on a shelf!
Here is a complete list from this week's hop:
