Diy Wood Art

There was some tree slices left over from Noah's birthday and I thought I could find a way to put them to use. I knew I wanted to paint one but I wasn't sure what to paint on it. After sketching out a few different ideas, I decided to try a simple yet different approach. And that's how I got to this triangle painting. 

Here is what I used:

  • a tree slice
  • pencil
  • paper
  • ruler
  • paint
  • scissors
  • sharpie

1. Use your ruler to measure your piece of wood and draw a triangle that will fit within its circumference.

2. Cut out the triangle. And use the cut out piece to trace it onto your piece of wood.

3. Use the same triangle cut-out to draw a second triangle that is a little spaced out from the first. (See picture below.)

4. Paint the part of the first triangle that isn't "covered up" by the second triangle.

5. Outline your shapes in a thick line of black sharpie. 

6. Erase any extra pencil lines.

Thats all. It's pretty simple, but I love it. It's a great art piece to sit on a shelf. Or you could always hang it on the wall. I really love how it makes it seem as if though the top triangle has been cut and is moving out from the piece of wood.

To me this piece is simple but not in a bad way. I love simple things. :) I sat mine on my dresser shelf and love it! It goes great with a lot of the decorations I have in my room. And of course the colors and size of the wood can be changed depending on where you will be displaying it. Xoxo, Sky
