DSC_4857If you followed my daughters room makeover process!! on my wishlist was a light art project! View more of my moodboard here!!! And the complete room makeover is here and here!

For this DIY I had on my hand some canvas and some ferry lights and I had to make them work!!!

  1. Mix up the paint color of your choice. I used the color I used for the colorblock wall!! It was bit tough to work with! But It turned out fine.
  2. Considering I was using wall paint on canvas for an easy application i used this foam brush thing! It gave much cleaner application and was very east to use!

3. Next I used a pencil to sketch the letters. The font I used was a double lettered font. I drew a line in the middle and on that I dotted around 1 inch apart. That is where I wanted to insert ferry lights.

4. To punch holes I used this screwdriver! Make sure you count the dots carefully to avoid any awkward gaps! I used two ferry light strings of 100 bulbs. So I divided equally 200 dots for the holes!
