Girl bedroom wall art, a butterfly and canvas craft

Oh DIY wall art, how much I love it! Seriously, I either need to have a massive rummage sale or get a home with more wall space for all of the creations I want to make for my walls! This Girl bedroom wall art, a butterfly and canvas craft is the perfect kind of project. It is simple, low cost, easy to do, and the results are beautiful!

Before I get into the details for this wall art idea I am going to introduce you to a new decorating challenge I am a part of. The Create with me challenge, is a monthly challenge with myself and a group of bloggers. Each month 4 items are shared as possible craft supplies. You get to vote for the one supply that should become the following months theme! I love this idea of a decorating challenge, and getting you all involved! This month the supply was simple a canvas. The bloggers and I all came up with projects to share having to do with a canvas. You will be able to see the other participants projects as well as a way to vote for next months supply at the bottom of this post.

 I wanted to do something creative and different with a canvas and had a great project done and drying. When disaster struck, OK… I might be a little dramatic, not so much disaster, but it was not a good start to my day or this challenge. I had my two canvas’s newly finished and drying on my table when one of my kid’s spilled their entire breakfast smoothie over the canvas’s. This is what I get for being on top of blogging and giving my kids a healthy breakfast. My original project was ruined! Which was a big time bummer because it was such a cool project.

I was not sure what to do since there was not enough time for me to make another one for this challenge. I do plan to redo the project because it was such a cool idea and I had the best use for them on my wall. However, I happen to be a DIY and crafting fool who has so many other projects. The canvas in Nora’s bedroom has been seen on my blog for a long time now, but I never shared the complete process. It is still a simple process, but I realized since I never shared it here there may be a lot of people who assume I purchased her large butterfly art from a store. Nope, this is done DIY style!

Supplies need for this project

One canvas of your choice (I went with a large one)

Paint color of your choice

3-D butterflies

 I purchased the butterflies from a craft store. I could have made them, but when DIYing the cost of supplies needs to be compared to the cost of actual purchasing of the item. Once putting in paper, time and DIY supplies it was cheaper to purchase the butterflies already done.

Paint the canvas. I loved this soft pink color, it is girly without being too bright. Nora does have a ton of bright pink in her room and I thought this softer hue would work to off-set the start hot pink.

The 3-D stickers are so cute, I picked a bunch of different colored and patterned ones.

I set them all around the canvas before taking the backing off. This way I was able to arrange them just the way they needed to be before I could not move them again. Once I had the lay out that I thought worked best, and got Nora’s approval I peeled off the back and stuck them to the canvas.

There was a discussion between Nora and I on how she wanted them arranged. She liked the idea of them grouped together, “making a design” as she said. So this was what I came up with. It seemed to be “design” enough for her.

The Girl bedroom wall art, a butterfly and canvas craft fits beautifully in her bedroom! Nora’s bedroom was completed a while ago, but we have been revising things over time to fit her needs as an 8 1/2 year old, which are different from when we decorated her bedroom when she was 5. Less playing, more reading, listening to music, and drawing. She does still play and use her imagination, but the cute play kitchen is long gone. I will be finally revealing her bigger girl bedroom redo soon. It is only a small few changes done, the overall look and color scheme is the same.

I have raised my kids in the world of decorating our home and DIY-ing everything. So they are constantly telling me what we should do to their bedrooms, sometimes including wall removals into their plans.

I adore how pretty and soft this canvas wall art is!

I hope to share the originally planned canvas project soon!

  7. It’s really pretty and great for a little girls room. I think some folks decorate their bathrooms with butterflies too so maybe a smaller version would be great in there. Love this idea.

    1. Emily says: Reply

      Oh yeah, this could work in a few areas in a home for sure. Doing the canvas in a more neutral color would make this work for a living room or an office.

  10. When my daughter was younger butterflies was her theme. I wish I would have thought of the ingenious decor item.

    1. Emily says: Reply

      My daughter has a theme of a meadow. She likes nature so butterflies are a great addition.

  11. Your canvas is adorable, even though it’s not the first project you wanted to share. I personally love the butterflies, especially for a little girl’s room. 😉

    I love how it turned out!! That stinks about your original project, though it’s only a matter of time before my kids ruin one of mine 🙂

    1. Emily says: Reply

      Thank you Sara! This was a first for me which I guess is pretty amazing considering what I tend to leave out around my house with my kids running around. Lesson learned! 🙂

  16. This is such a great project Emily! I love how it looks in your daughter’s room & can I just say once again, that I love, love her bed!!

    1. Emily says: Reply

      Thank you! Nora loves her room being very feminine, which is surprising because she does not dress or act like that. But she is all about the soft and pink look to her room, which I adore 🙂
