Pinspired Project with a Potter Twist

March 8, 2012

Do you follow The CSI Project yet?  They have a fun crafty challenge each week.  Last week was birthdays and this week is dedicated to Pinterest inspired projects.

Like most of you, Pinterest is one of those places that sucks me in and spits me out hours later wondering what day it is {Is it 5 a.m. or 5 p.m.?!}.  And yet again, like most of you, I pin tons of projects with the hopes of one day getting around to doing it myself {one day seems to get further and further away all the time}.

This challenge was the perfect excuse to get something done, but what to choose?  With so many amazing projects in the Pinterest galaxy it was difficult to choose only one.

I wanted to select something that wouldn't have me running around town gathering supplies, and sooo... AHA!


I don't need to tell you how beautiful this DIY canvas art is {do I?}.  I found this masterpiece on cupcakeMAG Editor's Pinterest DIY Love board.  She used a blank canvas, paint, fabric, glue and a dahlia stencil.  I absolutely love dahlias, but I wanted to go a completely different direction with this pinspiration project.

My beautiful Maia's sixth birthday is next month so I thought I could create a big girl bedroom piece of art.  To mimic Miss Maia's style, I wanted a girly girl meets Harry Potter piece of cuteness and by Harry I think I did it.

This canvas, meets paint, meets fabric perfectly Potter piece of art is just what I imagined it to be.  The best part?  I had EVERYTHING on hand!  I used a thin canvas, bright purple paint mixed with a little ivory to soften it up, yellow girly girl patterned fabric, bright 'n cheery yellow twine from The Twinery, Mod Podge and some hot glue.

Got this pretty project all squared away on The CSI Project.

Go check it out and think happy thoughts {win, win, win, win}!
