Skeleton Key Artwork

Skeleton Key Artwork from My Very Educated Mother

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I use to actually pull out the Mod Podge and make stuff. Here’s a little home d├ęcor DIY project I made, oh, about a year ago.

Skeleton Key Artwork

Let me start by introducing you to a very awesome website, you may or may not be familiar with it.  allows you to take an image and make it any size you’re little heart desires. 
So to make this piece of art I went over to The Graphics Fairy and found these two keys and then followed the prompts on Blockposter.

Once I had the images printed out. I taped them together and also put a tape around the part of the image I would be cutting out.

  Then I cut out the image with an X-acto knife. Vintage Skeleton Key DIY Home Decor
Next I laid the stencil onto the canvases I had already covered with old dictionary pages. You can see up at the top of the key things got tricky. There I used double-sided tape to hold the individual pieces in place. #Vintage Skeleton#Key #DIY #HomeDecor
Then I began painting.

Once the paint had dried I removed the stencil and sprayed a coat of Mod Podge sealer over the entire canvas. Skeleton Key Artwork
