Hand painting

What better way to personalize your space than by using your hands as quirky decor? Simply dip your hands in paint and press it on thick white paper. You can also invite the whole family to join in the fun. Take for example these two projects featuring the hands of mom, dad, and baby.

Chevron Art

If you're into patterns, simply draw and outline the chevron design on a canvass. Using a colored tape, cover every other section. For the remaining parts, add some glue then sprinkle the space with glitters. Once dry, you may remove the tape and paint the white space with your chosen hue.
