Lyrical Finger Painting Project

By: Jessica Hill for Mad in Crafts

This Lyrical Finger Painting Project from Jessica Hill is a great way to decorate a kids room!  Use whatever song means the most to you and your family and then hang this finger painting project up on the wall for everyone to see and admire!  And don't let the kids have all the fun!  Create beautiful canvases like this for your living room and kitchen, too!

Lyrical Finger Painting Project

Materials:

  • 2 foam boards
  • Package of finger paints
  • Several packages of alphabet wall clings
  • White spray paint
  • Glue
  • Construction paper in primary and secondary colors
  • Scrapbook punch or hole punch

 

Instructions:

  1. I mixed a bit of the red and yellow paints together so that we had all the warm primary and secondary colors to work with on the first foam board.

  2. We had a lot of fun watching the colors mix together, seeing how we could create different patterns with our fingers, and generally making a big mess.
     
  3. Once we finished the first foam board, we did it all over again with the cool colors on the second board. We left the boards outside to dry.

  4. I applied the song lyrics using the alphabet wall clings. It is CRUCIAL to the project that you use removable wall clings and NOT stickers!

  5. After I applied the wall clings to both boards, I sprayed each piece with white spray paint. I used really cheap spray paint, so the coverage was pretty awful. As it turned out, I kind of like the foggy look of the paint (the lyrics do refer to weather, after all), but if you want full coverage, don’t skimp on the paint.

  6. After the spray paint dried, my son and I carefully peeled off the wall clings, naming each letter as we went. Since I used wall clings, not stickers, they peeled right off with no damage to the paint job underneath!

  7. I punched confetti out of construction paper in the primary and secondary colors. I took a glue roller and sketched out a sun on the first board and a cloud on the second board. My son sprinkled the confetti on each, and then we shook off the excess.

  8. I mounted the foam board to the wall of my children's play room with removable poster strips.
