3D CANVAS ART

This is a really easy project that provides a lot of punch for your walls!    You literally can have it finished in just a couple of hours.
You can make it as elaborate or simple as you want, all it takes is just a few supplies.....

SUPPLIES:

1 canvas (size is totally up to you)
several silk floral stems (again, the amount is for you to determine)
white spray paint
trusty glue gun
wire cutters

I picked out just six floral stems, timing it with a 50% off sale, of course!  I purposely chose light colored flowers to allow for easy coverage with the white spray paint.  I was also able to get my canvasses on sale, yep...sold in a 2-pack.  So now I have another canvas stashed away for a future project.

The thing that probably took me the longest, was playing with the flowers to find the arrangement that I liked the best.  I wanted a somewhat asymmetrical look, so I left more blank canvas on the right hand side.

I chose to have some of the tips of the flowers extend above the canvas, but didn't want the stems to fall below, so I clipped the bottoms with a pair of wire cutters.

I turned, bent and glued the stems so they would really stand out from the canvas in spots, while other areas are glued flat to the canvas.  

I am totally thrilled with how it turned out, and it looks great in my office.

Have fun!
