Create Wow-Worthy Wall Art

Oct 26, 2015 06:29AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Home and Garden




You’ve selected the perfect furniture and coordinated all the accessories, but if you leave the walls bare, the room you’ve worked so hard to complete may still feel unfinished.

A burst of contemporary color or classic multi-dimensional art is easy to achieve at home with some basic supplies and a bit of creative flair. These wall hangings, created by the crafting experts at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, make it simple to enhance any room’s look in just a few hours.

The bold jewel tones and classic lattice pattern of the Buttercream Wall Art are signature looks of the new Buttercream collection available exclusively at Jo-Ann for those who love to personalize their home decor. For a more modern approach, the Contemporary Canvas Artwork grouping makes a bold statement with a fully customizable palate to reflect your personal style.

Supplies and Tools:
  • Acrylic paints: yellow, orange, deep red, burnt sienna, white
  • 1-inch paintbrush
  • Set of 9 miniature canvases
  • Squeeze bottle
  • Gloss medium

Following manufacturer's directions, mix five colors of paint, creating five total paint shades graduating from deep red to yellow. Paint each canvas with two coats of paint to assure proper coverage. Refer to photo when painting the canvases. Let dry. In squeeze bottle, mix white paint with some yellow and orange paint, plus gloss medium.

Lay canvases together, forming a square, without spaces between each canvas. Using paint mixture in squeeze bottle, decorate canvases with swirl pattern. Separate canvases to dry.
