Well oh well, never thought I would whip up another DIY… but I think I just did it again (and again, and again!) What do you think of this mosaic inspired paintings?? Do you like it? This DIY turned out even better than I thought, so I’m pretty proud to share this with you today. The best part is, this project is so easy that even a 2 year old like Hayden can handle it.
This idea was really inspired by a similar project I saw at my daughter’s preschool last week. Yup, I got inspired by pre-schoolers! They used masking tape to create shapes on poster boards and just did random paintings on it. I thought this idea was so cool I decided to try my own version with Hayden. She never did this project because the arts were done by students one level above her, but I’ve been doing paintings with Hayden at home so I thought this would be a fun project for her too. My twist on this is doing this DIY on canvas with neon and color acrylic paints and glitter.
Step 1: Randomly place masking tape over the canvas while trying to create geometric shapes. Try to carve out about 5-8 blocks to paint on, depending how big or how small you want them to be.
Step 2: Choose different colors for each block and just paint away. For the little ones, you may want to guide them on how to paint within the block, but I think it’s also very cute when the paints get mixed into each other. It makes the art kind of unique.
For those of you who wants to add glitter onto this DIY, apply the mod podge onto the block you want to add glitter on and then sprinkle it first before you do any painting. That way, the excess glitter will not get stuck onto the paint.
And that’s all! Super cool and fun, right? I hope you find it easy enough to give it a try too!
