I am thrilled that it is finally September and that the blistering hot summer days will (hopefully) be behind us soon. I wanted to start incorporating some fall decor into the house, without going overboard just yet. So I decided to make some decor for the wall using texture and not color. I got a bunch of foam leaf sticker for the girls, and found that they would be perfect for this project.
Supplies: 6 canvases, foam leaves (affiliate link), white acrylic paint and a foam brush
Super easy project. Stick the leaves on to the canvas where you want them. Then paint, paint, paint across the foam and the canvas. It took quite a few coats to cover the color of the foam. Stick with the lighter colors, like yellow, if you can to make it easier.
I did try painting them with flat spray paint, but it just wasn’t covering as well as I wanted it to. I guess I could have tried the spray paint for plastic, but I’m not sure how that would have worked either.
My original idea was to do this with snowflakes. But of course I would have had to wait. Snowflakes on the wall when it’s still over 100° out would just be loony. I absolutely can’t wait to to the snow scene, but I’d like to find wooden shapes if possible. I’m sure they will paint easier and last longer.
Here’s the canvases with my bare branches “tree” in front. Mr. Sparklepants said it was too busy, so I moved the “tree” to make it seem more zen.
