{diy confetti art}

 


Recently I needed to buy a frame for a gift and I conveniently found it at Aaron Brothers during their 5 cent sale. Which meant I was able to pick up a 24 inch square box canvas along with the frame I needed for free!  I was originally thinking I might mount some photos on it using this previous post as inspiration.  Instead I was inspired by some Kate Spade dinnerware - see above.  I picked up some metallic gold cardstock and glitter paper then used my 2-inch circle punch to create the confetti.  I placed it haphazardly around the white canvas and secured it with spray adhesive.





This entire project took me maybe 15 minutes!  It would look even better if I had taken the time to paint the canvas since our walls are white and a little color would have made it pop more.  This would make a great gift for someone's birthday; I would love to see it as multicolored confetti on an even bigger canvas!

  1. LOVE this idea!! I am beyond obsessed with the kate spade gold polka-dot dishes (crossing my fingers they are still available when it comes time to register for my wedding!). I have to do this project before summer is over - thanks :)

  3. I love this! Making your own wall art is the best. I want to try a long rectangle canvas and confetti maybe to match our living room couch/pillows/chairs ensemble. Great idea!

  10. Did you spray the canvas and then stick the dots on, or did you stick the dots in position and spray over them?

  11. Hi Nicole,

    I laid out newspaper and put all the "dots" upside down and sprayed them with the spray adhesive. Then placed them randomly around the canvas. The spray adhesive wont dry immediately but if you want to take your time placing them then I would spray 4 or 5 at a time and then place.

    Hope that helps!

    1. I wish I would have read this yesterday lol...I sprayed the entire canvas :( and my dots are lifting because I didn't want to over load the canvas with glue...perhaps I will add some glitter dust for texture and reglue my dots.

      Thank you for the inspiring art :)

  29. Hmmmmmmm..... I was thinking about just framing about 12 different pieces of scrapbook paper over my bed as a headboard. But now I think I might just get 3 larger canvases and use the paper to make dots on all three. THANKS FOR THE IDEA!!!

  35. Hello! I saw your idea on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. I made one on a 24" X 24" piece of canvas...with lots more circles. I am actually going to auction it off at the 2012 JDRF Charity Event this year. I thought it would might just raise money to find a cure for kids with diabetes. Thank you for your creative inspiration. This was so easy and fun to make. Check it out: http://pinterest.com/pin/256423772503415375/
