Today I’m joining in on a fun ‘think outside of the box’ challenge so if you’re here from Perfectly Imperfect, welcome!
My blog friends Jamin and Ashley published three awesome books filled with removable 8×10 art prints. The idea is brilliant and makes switching out art affordable and so, so easy. The art work is all great, but no one can hang all of it in their homes, so they challenged a group of bloggers to come up with other creative uses for the artwork – the only request was that we could not place them in a frame (which I sort of cheated on …).
I was inspired to use the pretty paintings to create these cutie royal woodland animals. I call it making art from art.
They were so simple to make (and I even have templates for you so you can make them too!).
// SUPPLIES //
template (download below) / art work / scissors / glue stick / piece of thick paper cut to 8×10
// STEPS //
1. cut out template pieces
2. trace shapes onto art with desired colors
3. cut out pattern pieces
4. glue stick in place
5. cut crown from glittery paper (gift wrap from here)
Once your animal is finished, pop it in a frame (that’s where I cheated) and hang.
Audrey loves the little fox!
Here he is up close:
And the deer:
And handsome owl:
Aren’t those cute?! I love how they turned out. I taped them up to the pin board in my office, but they will probably end up in Audrey’s room as part of her art wall. They would be cute in a nursery or child’s room and also a fun project to do with kids. You could use scrapbook paper, book pages, old magazines or, of course, Jamin & Ashley’s art books.
