This easy art project with spray paint is so simple that your kids can do it. Actually, if I had younger children, I really would let them do it.
I really love that creating your own decor from random inexpensive things is so popular now, because I have been doing it for years. I hear people say that when they shop and buy new things it makes them feel good, but it doesn’t make me feel good. Making decor out of things I already have and for less money makes me feel good.
I had these two canvases in the garage from when I redecorated my daughter’s room. I could have purchased two new canvases, but I thought I would paint over these, and save the money. Would you expect anything different from me? If I did not have any canvases, I would have looked for some cheap canvases at the thrift store to paint over. You can usually find them for about $2 each.
I sprayed the two canvases with white spray paint and let it dry.
I sprayed the outer two stripes with gold metallic spray paint and let dry.
I sprayed the center with silver metallic spray paint.
On the second canvas, I sprayed the stripes with the opposite colors. You could paint the second one exactly the same way you paint the first canvas, and I still think it would look sharp, but I wanted them different colors.
I really enjoy creating my own easy wall art with spray paint that I have on hand instead of purchasing art.

I love this idea and I totally agree…making your own art is so much more fun. I just finished redoing my bedroom in gold, gray and indigo. I’m thinking I might give this a try this weekend.
Stopping by during the Thurs blog hop,
Such a simple and easy way to decorate a room. I love that you were able to make these using old canvases (I have some of these lying around too)! Thank you for sharing on #HomeMattersParty!

I loved that you used the canvases you already had on hand to make new artwork. Why not? Especially if you weren’t going to hang up the other pictures how they were. Thanks for partying with us at Talented Tuesday. Hope you are having a great day!
