Today on the Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family Show I’m making these adorable DIY Animal Wall Art Canvases. These are perfect for a nursery or children’s room. You can also make them really chic by painting them black and white, or any colors you like to match a room.
This project would be a really fun one for kids to be a part of if they are old enough to work with acrylic craft paint.
Canvases in desired sizes; sizes will vary based on the size of the animals
Small plastic animals
Serrated knife or hand saw; if your animals are solid plastic, you may need to use a chop saw
Paint; acrylic craft paint or spray paint both work
Industrial strength glue; gorilla super glue also works well for this
*Cut the animals in half
*Paint the canvas and the animals in the desired colors; this may require multiple coats of paint; it does help to paint the animal white first, then paint over it with the colored paint
*Allow to dry
*Glue the animal onto the canvas
