DIY : Decoupage Zakka Word Easel
Today , as I was rummaging through the “.found” drawer ( that’s where I keep all the tiny trinkets that my kids are no longer fond of) , I found a tiny art easel. I saw a word art canvas online where the artist wrote thick, edgy words on with shoe polish? It looked so so cool. I thought I can make a miniature version.
The Steps :
- Paint everything white. You can use primer, any cheap acrylic paint will do.
- After it dries, coat it with white glue ( with a paint brush or an old sponge )
- After that dries, place the decoupage tissue paper on top of the canvas ( after pulling off the unprinted plies ) , dab the tissue lightly with a damp sponge. Start from the center and outwards to the edges.
- Wait for that to dry then use a Sharpie to write your inspirational words, or perhaps, something funny ! Place it on a desk top and enjoy your very own diy word art.
