I remember I used to like doing spray painting when I was a kid. I guess it was probably because it meant you could get messy with your fingers and create splatters of paint which could be perceived as artistic.
Anyway, I had an idea of how to turn a spray painting artwork into a bedroom decoration but first, I had to introduce the kids to the concept of spray painting. So we hunted around for spare toothbrushes, gathered some materials from our craft supplies and did something fun!
In this week's Creativity 521, I am sharing with you about our Spray Painting session and how we did a simple Makeover for the girls' new bunk bed.
3) Cup for holding water
4) Alphabet stickers
5) Construction paper
7) Blu Tack
8) Old newspaper
Moving on to our big project, remember we bought a Kura bunk bed from IKEA (for just $269!) last month? So far, the girls have been loving it and they like to pretend to be camping and we also have our bedtime storytelling under the tent every night. The good news is Ariel also loves sleeping in the kids' room now and although she still needs me to accompany her before she can fall asleep, at least we have successfully shifted both kids to this room. Woohoo!
Frozen, of course!!!!
Materials used for the makeover:
1) Big pieces of blue paper
2) White paint
6) 3M tape
7) Blu Tack
9) Glossy photo paper
10) Shiny white paper
11) Colour printer
12) Snowflake punch
14) Craft knife
15) Old newspapers
16) Container for holding water and paint mixture
Here's how the decorative artwork looks in the end. Do you like it?
