To do this project you just need a few things:
- A blank canvas (I used an 8x10 canvas)
- Four colors of paint
- A small paint brush
- A black paint pen
- A gold paint pen
Once you have these goodies and your work space set up, it's time to get work! First step I did was write out "Give Thanks" in my neatest handwriting and I tried to center it. Once I had that I sketched out my feathers.
With that done it was time to start painting in my feathers! I chose to paint mine orange, yellow, purple, and green but obviously you can choose any color scheme you want! I gave them 2 coats of paint. After the paint dried, I outlined the feathers with a black paint pen.
The next step is to go over the quote with a gold paint pen. I had to do two coats with the paint pen since it was a new pen (they take a bit to break in).
Once the lettering dries, it's time to put it up! I have mine on the table with some pumpkins next to it for that extra fall-like touch.
Are you going to give this DIY a go? Do you have any other Thanksgiving DIYs on your mind?
