DIY: Sweater Art
Project Colours (all Benjamin Moore):
“Exotic Red” 2086-10
Base coat three 11″x16″ pre-gesso canvases with a colour of your choice. I used “Exotic Red” for a bright, festive punch of colour.
Using chalk, sketch out a silhouette of a simple Christmas image such as a tree, gingerbread man, or mitten.
Next, fill in the silhouette with another colour of your choice using an artist brush. I used a combination of “Pewter” and “Overcoat”.
Once dry, use a thick upholstery needle and some yarn to hand stitch around the perimeter of the silhouette.
Glue on a few button embellishments, and TA-DAH…you have some easy and inexpensive art to dress your walls for the holiday season.
