Ok, so you may have heard that we’re on a mission to add some colours to the wall in our playroom. Earlier this week, the hooligans made box lid art , and last week we melted crayon shavings to make our stunning rendition of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”, and today, I’m sharing a very cool recycled painting project with you! We took an inexpensive and not-so-attractive second hand store purchase, and gave it an awesome makeover!
This is such an affordable way to put some art on your playroom walls, while at the same time showcasing your child’s artwork!
What you need to make a recycled painting:
All you need is a hideous or out-dated piece of art. If you don’t already own one, hit the thrift shops. You’ll have no problem finding something that’s perfect! A couple of months ago, when I was cruising through Value Village I happened upon this little gem.
It was priced at $5.99. Jackpot!! A little high perhaps, but it wasn’t the painting I was thinking about. It was what we could DO with it!
How we made our recycled painting:
An absolutely one-of-a-kind, hooligan-made work of art! I think it’s fantastic! Stay tuned… we’ll be making another recycled painting soon!
