My youngest is reaching the age where we will begin to decorate her bedroom in preparation for moving her out of the nursery. Due to this, we have naturally built up a collection of colour charts whilst trying to decide on the colour for her bedroom. I’m a big believer in trying to reduce waste through recycling, we only get one planet, so it always feels like a waste to discard these charts into the bin. I love making unique one-off pieces, so I decided to make use of these charts turning them into geometric (big current trend) pink/purple ombré unicorns.
I did this a while back creating some pieces for our dining room, check out my Instagram (@diaryofayummymummy) to see more on these – to be posted tomorrow. You can create any design of your choice in any colour, matching your colour scheme. This one was a little fiddly but is suitable for any crafting beginner. The more complicated the design, the longer it takes, if this is your first time it’ll take a few hours to complete. It is a nice project to do if you have a chunk of spare time or if you want to complete it over a short period of time.
Here is what you’ll need;
- Card of chosen size
- Colour charts
- Tracing paper (optional but it will help speed up the process)
Here is how to create this look;
- In pencil, lightly draw the outline of your chosen design. If you’re not a confident artist, there are lots of templates on the internet that you can use.
- Decide on colour ombré order.
- Using the tracing paper map out the geometric shapes and placement of these.
- Cut out the individual pieces and stick onto the design in the chosen place. Continue until the design is complete.
- Frame and stick up.
Hope you are having a magical weekend,
