Artsy Kid Paintings Tutorial

Monday, November 18, 2013



Last month I should you all our kiddos' bathroom reveal and I got so many emails about the Artsy Kid Paintings that we used to decorate! They are by far my favorite thing in the entire bathroom. They make a huge statement on a muted wall and are so inexpensive and easy to make.


I started with two 12x12" canvases and I used my Silhouette to cute this super cute image of a boy and girl smooching out of some vinyl! <3  I know not everyone has a Silhouette but don't let that discourage you. You can get some adorable stickers at your local craft store and apply those to the canvas. You could use letters to spell out a fun phrase or verse and you could even print an image, cut it out, and apply it to the canvas with some double sided tape! The possibilities are endless :) 


Once I applied the vinyl I gave each of my kids a plate full of paint and let them have at it. 
I was careful to only give them paint colors that I chose. It was colors that I thought coordinated well with the shower curtain we purchased for the bathroom. 

Bella loves to paint so she had a blast!!! 
Kids are great... they don't need any directions just give them an easy direction and see where they take it. 


Here is Bella's painting when she was all finished! I just adore her imagination. According to the princess herself, that blue "blob" on the left side is a bird and she is trying to talk the girl out of kissing that silly boy! <3


Jonathon had a much different painting technique. He had no cute story to go with his painting. He told me he just wanted to hurry up and cover up all the white so I would let him go outside and play hockey!


I still think his painting turned out great! 


Once the paint was dry I used a pair of tweezers to get a hold of the sticker and pull it off to reveal the white underneath! I couldn't be any happier with how they turned out. 
While they might not be a master piece to everyone who enters my house, they mean so much to me. 


I will always remember the day they painted them. The stories they told and just how badly Jonathon wanted to finish to go out and play. I think they are the perfect piece of artwork for any space. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
