DIY Wall Art

I just want to give everyone out there a big thank you for all of your support. We are looking forward to this new step in our lives and are very happy to know so many people are pulling for us!
Now onto the project!

For those of you who, like me, are not so artistically talented - I present you with a wall art task anyone can manage.

Canvas or paper
Stencil Film
Print out of your silhouette pattern

Tape your pattern to the stencil film and tediously cut out your silhouette.

Remove backing from film and place it over your canvas. You will probably have to rub the film in to secure it. Paint over the secured stencil.

Remove the stencil and you have a very nice silhouette that requires no artistic skill to create!

I haven't hung this anywhere as we might be moving soon. But I plan on making a set of these to hang in our future guest room. Maybe even another set of plant silhouettes..



  1. I love this! Especially the coral piece you did. Great idea for making affordable art, our walls are pretty bare.
