I made this simple wall art to hang in my little lady’s new bedroom. One fabric I’m using in her quilt is red with white polka dots and we are doing black accenting.
To make this::
I painted a white canvas 8 in x 20 in with two coats of red paint.
I then used a compass to lightly trace circles onto the red background using a pencil.
With a white paint marker, I filled in the circles and ended up going over them about 3 times to really make them bright.
I then just free handed the “little lady” using a black paint marker.
I also had a few small wooden ladybugs I painted and affixed to the canvas.
I’m also thinking about attaching black ribbon to each top corner and tying a bow to hang it with..What do you think?
- Get canvas. I got mine for half off at a local craft store. I think it’s a 24″ x 30″. Paint the edges around the canvas. They will show but you don’t have to worry about them being perfect.
Pick out scrapbooking papers that coordinate well together. I got mine in a DCWV stack
- I then typed and printed my rules directly onto the scrapbooking paper. Cut to desired height and after lining them the way you like, you will mod podge them onto your canvas. I knew I had too many rules to fit without layering so I started at the bottom and layered them all the way to the top. I then had room at the top to put a little “Family Rules” title.
- Once it is completely dry I used a paint marker pen to go over the rules so they would be easily read. Mod podge over the entire canvas and let dry. If you want to make sure it’s really sealed you can do another coat of mod podge for good measure..

To recover wipes case I hot glued felt onto the top to cover the smaller opening.
I then cut my fabric to cover to and bottom and to hang about halfway on the sides.
Hot glue fabric onto wipes case
Hot glue adorable trim around edges to give a finishing touch.
To make the flowers I simply used a knit fabric and used a loose basting stitch down the middle for the entire length of the strip.
Gather by pulling top thread.
I then arranged them nicely into circles/flowery shapes and hot glued it down like crazy.
Glue a coordinating button on top.
