As many of you know, I love the art of window display design! Four our group project, Kianna Coggins and Candice Avery and I created this display in Dauby to illustrate the style and color trends for Fall 2013 for Professor Jennifer Knaus’s Visual Merchandise/Display Class. I created the “fall leaves” by cutting up paper towel tubes and gluing them onto poster boards with tree branches.
I loved making this display so much that I’m going to dedicate this post to an easy craft project you can do to make easy and affordable dorm art that looks like it belongs in the windows of Anthropologie.
This is What You’ll Need: *Paper towel tubes *Hot glue and a Hot glue gun *Scissors *Acrylic Paint
Step #1: Using your hands, form the cut sections into “circles” and “ovals” for the center and petal pieces.
Step #2: Build your sculpture by hot gluing the card board pieces into place building outwards of the center “circle”
Step #3: Paint the cardboard and allow cardboard to dry.
Step #4: (Optional) for added durability, spray sculpture with shellac, or paint on Modge Podge, or a similar decoupage product.
Tada! Use a Command Hook product to hang your sculpture for a damage-free hold!
