I have been having a lot of fun with my Cricut this weekend and I have been wanting to try making the toilet paper art so....
I had this piece of vinyl decorated that I used for another project still to come and some canvases. So what the heck, here we go...
I started by making these hearts out of cut toilet paper rolls.
I cut the roll into 5 separate circles.
Invert the point at one end and secure with a dot of hot glue.
The first seven, I painted pink and then shot with the red glitter paint.
Then I thought to myself, this is a pain hand painting these and I remembered this tip that I had read on Pinterest
I did, I mixed and shook
and oh boy! I was ready to spray, no more paint brush!
I ended up with a splattered mess, now it may have been the bottle that I bought or operator error, but I had a great big mess. So, I broke out my paint brush and painted 7 in purple and 7 red.
Then it was time to get the board together...
This is a 16x20 canvas
I sprayed it with the red glitter paint to break up the white a little.
Put the vinyl heart in the middle and spread the other hearts around.
Once I was happy with the way it looked, I hot glued them down and attached the vinyl.
One more quick dusting of the red glitter paint. Then I stepped back and looked.
It seemed rather plain to me.
I had these foam hearts from the Target Dollar Spot
(are you beginning to think that I spend alot of time in that section of Target...you are right)
I filled in the holes with these hearts and I love the way it looks. I have a huge opening between my kitchen and living room that I am going to hang this in...I will preview how it looks hanging after I post the other crafts. I will show my decorated pass through by Friday with all my Valentines decorations!!
