Cheap and SO easy Wall decor with a touch of Nature!

Lately I have been obsessed with the colors brown and green, I think they go so well together and plus they are the colors of nature, and I LOVE nature. I decided a while back after moving our bedroom and getting a new bed that I wanted to decorate the room in these colors, so I have slowly been adding little touches of browns and greens whenever I make something or find things in stores.

Last week I came across this idea for wall decor, the colors were different but I figured it looked simple enough to try and give my own personal touch to, so here is the finished product!

Things You Need
Canvas
Construction Paper
Stick/Twig/Limb
Paint
Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
Pen or Pencil
Scissors
 
Step One: First Paint the canvas in your color choices, let dry.
Step Two: While paint on canvas is drying make paper flowers, there are many ways and tutorials out there to make all kinds of paper flowers. The flowers I used were simple to make see how to make paper flowers below.
Step Three: Hot glue your limb or twig in place.
Step Four: Hot Glue on your finished paper flowers.
Step Five: Enjoy!
 
How to make Paper Flowers (pictured above)
 
Step one: Cut out 8 petals to your desired size and shape.
Step Two: Using the pen or pencil slightly roll the outer edges of the petals backward to give a slight curl look, and then using the same technique roll the inner edge inward towards you.
Step Three: Hot glue the petals together stacking together slightly.
 
For the center of the flower
Cut a strip of different colored construction paper in a thin strip (size depending on the size of your flower), then make tiny slits all the way down the strip with scissors. Next roll the strip in a tight circle and then secure with glue, then push or pull the slits slightly outward to create a fringed look.

  1. This is so precious! I love making paper crafts, I used to keep a scrap book but have not have the opportunity to add to it since I started focusing on my Etsy shop.
