Sophie and I undertook an ambitious and beautiful craft project during our “staycation” last week. Inspired by Meg at Whatever, we decided to create butterfly wall art. This was a really fun project and was not as daunting as it looked. We bought painting canvases at Michael’s (probably any craft or art supply store will have them) and covered them in blue paint.
Then you grab a piece of white paper and paint it with lots of colors. Meg used watercolors, but Sophie and I thought it took too long. So we used regular art paint. We ended up needing two painted sheets of paper to cover the canvas with butterflies.
Isn’t it so pretty?! It looks complicated, but it really was quite easy. We’ve since hung the art in the family room. Sophie loves seeing her art on the wall and I love the color it brings to the room.
