I’ve been having fun working on some artwork for the baby’s room and I’d love to share with you!  The projects have been very easy to do and cheap!

First up, is one of the canvas projects I did. (Pictured below)  The only materials I used for this project were a 12×12 art canvas, white spray paint, twine, scrapbook paper and a butterfly punch. I had everything on hand already except the art canvas (used a 50% off coupon at Michaels) and the white spray paint (about $4.50 at Walmart).

This project is a super simple canvas art project perfect for a baby's room. #diy #diyart #canvasart #nursery #nurseryideas

Here’s how I did it:

  • Spray painted the entire canvas in white spray paint
  • Wrapped some twine around the whole canvas several times
  • Punched out the butterflies in scrapbook paper that coordinated with the curtains I made
  • Glued the butterflies to the twine

Simple!  Here’s what the back looks like.  (I tied the twine in a knot in the back.)

I’ll be sharing my other projects over the next week or so.  I’ll also be doing a “reveal” post on the entire baby room which I completed quite cheaply near the end of the month for those interested! 🙂
