Patience and Plants

This weekend I was playing on Pinterest and I saw this pin over and over. When I clicked on it - it led me to a website looked like a European version of Pinterest, it wasn't in English, so I can't be sure. I hate not being able to share the origin - so if you know the source please send me the link so I can share it.

The supplies I needed were 3 colors of spray paint, random leaves, and canvas. 

I chose the leaves I wanted and positioned them in place for a test run. 

Next I covered the canvas in spray paint. Letting the paint dry is key for this craft. I struggle with letting  paint dry, so I set to work on another craft in the meantime to keep me busy. I've learned throughout the whole Kiss My Smash experience that I'm a very impatient person. I've also learned, with me, distraction is key. 

Next I used spray adhesive to put the leaves in place. More waiting. 

When I thought the spray adhesive had dried enough, I covered the entire canvas in silver spray paint. Then more waiting. More patience required. This is tough. 

I very slowly peeled the plant off the canvas. I knew the adhesive wasn't very strong from the LOVE/Fail post. If you try this craft make sure your adhesive isn't too strong. 

I hung these two little friends under the LOVE letters. Now I want to put one big rectangular piece above the LOVE letters to complete the wall. 

What do you think? This was a pretty easy craft aside from the necessary patience. Give it a try and let me know how it goes! 


  1. I'm going to have to try this one...

    1. Do it! It was so easy! Just don't hang it up crooked, like I did!
