Where the Wild Things Are Picture

Usually I’m not one to cut up old books, but when I found this torn-up copy of one of my favorite books, Where the Wild Things Are, I couldn’t help but find a way to put it to use.

A cute addition to a boy’s bedroom or nursery, this little 8 x 10 canvas is super easy to make and you can do it with any picture book you’d like!

Without further ado, let the wild rumpus start!

Where the Wild Things Are Picture

Materials:

  • 8 x 10 in. canvas
  • Where the Wild Things Are book, or book of your choice
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • 3D Scrapbooking Stickers
  • White Cardstock
  • Black Sharpie Marker
  • Embellishments, as desired

Instructions:

First, find the image you’d like to use for the background. I chose this one of Max. Using Mod Podge, glue the page to the canvas. Set aside to dry completely.

While that dried, I cut out my monster and glued him to a piece of cardboard for added stability.

I added a layer of Mod Podge to the front of the monster, too…so set that aside to dry. In the meantime…

I added this cute embellishment to the canvas, using a picture that was hung up in Max’s room in the book:

I also added a coat of gold glitter paint to the border of the canvas, as well as the outer edge of the page:

Once the paint was dry, I added my monster. I covered the back with 3D scrapbooking stickers to give the monster a little dimension and let him jump off the side of the picture a bit:

Once my monster was placed, I got to working on the quote. I wrote “We’ll eat you up we love you so” on white cardstock, then ripped out the letters individually and placed them on the canvas to make sure everything fit:

Once the letters were placed, I used 3D stickers to attach them to the canvas.

And there ya go! A cute picture to decorate your reading room or nursery!

DIY Floor Pouf

So my husband and I recently moved into a new apartment…in an effort to be more “adult”, we got rid of all our furniture and decided to upgrade to couches and chairs that didn’t come from the cesspool that is Craigslist…been there, done that…and it’s gross.

We’ve yet to purchase a couch for our new place, but we still needed a place to sit and chillax while we watched TV or what have you, so I decided to make some floor poufs.

DIY-floor-pouf

I had a ton of extra fabric laying around and these poufs put a serious dent in my stash, which my storage closet very much appreciated! 😉  They’re great for beginners and involve very little measuring, which my brain very much appreciated!

You’ll need about 2 yards of fabric, depending on how big you want your pouf to be.  You’ll need two panels that measure 24 in. X 24 in. – these will be the top and bottom of your pouf.  For the sides, you’ll need four panels that measure 24 in. high X 16 in. wide.  Then you’ll pin them together (front side down) like so:

pattern

Then you just run this baby through the sewing machine!  Start by sewing all the side panels to the bottom square, then sew the top panel to the top side panel.  Finish by sewing the top square to the front panel, being sure to leave a good 4 inches or so to turn right-side-out and stuff.

Once you’re done sewing, turn your piece right-side-out.  Fill with stuffing of your choice – I used Poly-Fill (I used 3 of the big bags).  Once filled, sew up the remaining hole and enjoy!
