DIY Splatter Canvas


If you’ve ever seen The Princess Diaries, you may remember the scene where Mia’s mom is throwing darts at a canvas covered in paint-filled water balloons. One day, my friend and I decided to try it, but life is nothing like movies.

After trying and failing to pop balloons full of paint, we opted for simply dripping the paint down the canvas. Using a few different colors that matched my decor, I splattered paint onto the canvas with a paintbrush while it leaned upright against something. I also dipped paint down the canvas, creating a similar look to what Mia’s mom created in the movie.

All you need is the canvas and a few colors of regular acrylic paint. It doesn’t take long at all, and it looks great on the wall.
