A while back I shared my plans for Mr. G’s new playroom. Well I’ve shared a lot of plans for the rooms in the house and I promise some reveals are coming soon!
Anyway…Mr. G’s playroom theme is monsters and the color scheme is bright and colorful. There is a lot of empty wall space so I figured it would be great for him to have his own gallery wall. Pictures of him, monster art, etc. Today I’m sharing one of the pieces I made just for this space!
What You’ll Need: Large Canvas, Paper Mache Letters, Paint, Fabric (optional)
First thing I did was paint a chevron pattern on the canvas. At first, I was disappointed that the lines didn’t come out clean, but then after looking at it, I thought it looked almost like fuzzy fur. Perfect for a monster’s playroom! The texture of the canvas had actually helped out with this furry effect.
Now paint the letters. You can paint the entire letter or just the tops, it all depends on if you’re going to do the fabric step. If you are, cut strips of fabric and glue them to the border of the letters. This furry stuff was leftover from Mr. G’s monster costume I made for his first Halloween.
Now that I look at it, I may even add some eyes to this PLAY monster!
