DIY 3D Ballerina Art

Since we're all about ballerina's this week, I couldn't wait to share this easy and extra adorable art project with you! This would be perfect for a girls bedroom, or a nursery.

This is all you need:

  • Two Canvases (I used 12"x12')

  • Can of Spray Paint (I also used a glitter spray on top)

  • Vinyl and Cutting Machine (it's just for a stencil, so color isn't important!)

  • Transfer Paper (for easier application but not 100% necessary)

  • About 8" of Tulle, a needle and thread

  • Various decorations like tiny flower, rhinestones, feathers, etc.+ some type of glue (I used super glue)

So let's start with cutting your stencils. Head on over to the Free Printables Library and download the ballerina and swan stencils.

I cut them into vinyl with my Silhouette, if you don't have access you could probably cut them out by hand with some small changes.

Once you have the shapes cut out, place them onto the canvases where you would like them. They tend to peel up around the edges so make sure you rub them firmly until the edges stay down.

Now you will spray the canvases with your paint. I did a few layers and once those dried I added a light glitter layer on top, for more sparkle;) Once they dry, peel off the stencil.

Now that the 'hard' part is over we get to do the fun decorating!

I grabbed some tiny fabric flowers with sticky backing from the scrap booking section at Hobby Lobby, they also have sticky back rhinestones which were perfect!

The 'feathers' on the swan was actually a hair clip from Hobby Lobby, but feathers would be super cute too!

Lastly you can just accordion fold your tulle and then stick your needle and thread through all the layers to create the tutu! I used super glue to adhere the feathers and tutu.

I love how you can really personalize this project, from the paint color to all the little details, you can really make it your own! I hope you love this one as much as I do:)
