This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 1

First, cover your stretched canvas with black acrylic paint.

Tip:

  • Don’t worry too much about painting the edges because they will be covered later in the project.

Step 2

Next, use a ruler to draw 2 parallel lines that are 10 inches long and 3 inches apart.

Tip:

  • If you make a mistake, do not erase it. If you do then you will mess up the black background. Simply re-draw the lines correctly and we will fix mistakes later.

Step 3

Add triangles and lines at each end as pictured above step 2 to turn them into arrows.

Tip:

  • Again, do not erase any mistakes.

Step 4

Draw the word “EXPLORE” centered above your arrows. (The picture already has green paint to show you the difference between the messed up area and corrected area.)

Tip:

  • This is an excellent example of not erasing your mistakes. The first time I drew “EXPLORE” it wasn’t centered so I had to re-do it.

Step 8

Allow all of your paint to dry completely.

Step 9

If necessary, add a second coat of green paint and allow it to dry.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
