Faux Sho: My Faux Flower Canvas

Hello, friends! Have you ever had one of those projects on your to-do list that just keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the list? Well, over the weekend, I finally finished the middle piece for the art collage on my guest room wall. Read about the rest of my do-it-yourself wall art in this post. And what was my piece de resistance??

This adorable faux flower canvas. Several weeks ago, I saw a tutorial on this cute little project over on the blog Twelve Crafts Till Christmas. I knew it'd be perfect for our guest room wall, which just got updated.

Here's a close up of the guest room wall art collage.

See that blank middle canvas? Perfect spot for the faux flower wall art.

It took me awhile to find fabric that I wanted for the project. I love the purple, green and coral scrapbook paper that I framed and wanted something fun and funky to accompany it. After searching through several fabric stores, I finally found exactly what I was looking for in the form of tea towels from Cost Plus World Market (on sale, half off! yesss). Let's be honest, I did a happy dance in the aisle- the towels match the existing wall art perfectly!

I simply started by cutting circles in the fabric, alternating sizes and patterns. I then scrunched all of the circles up in a plastic baggie, so that the flowers would have a wrinkled, 3-D look.

Next, I threaded each flower with a straight pin stuck through a faux pearl. This makes the flower's center and it also connects each flower to the canvas.

On the back side of the canvas, I bent each straight pin back with a pair of pliers so that it wouldn't scratch against the wall and so that it wouldn't slip out easily.

Here's a close up of the finished product.

I love it! It's exactly what I was looking for. Here's my new art hanging on the wall in the guest room.

You'll have to forgive the empty frame on the left... the frame fell in the middle of the night and shattered the glass. Until I replace it, the frame is just sitting empty. Another thing for the to-do list! :)

Lets not forget what this guest bedroom looked like before.

Don't you think it's looking a lot better these days?! :) Thanks again to Twelve Crafts Till Christmas for sharing the idea! What do you guys think?
