Accessorizing Your Room: State Decor

Bringing back the little series I did last summer, Accessorizing your Room for another DIY for your wall or drawer. State decor to represent where you are from!

Supplies you will need:
A print out of your state and where your town is located
Watercolor Paint, Paper, and Brush
Cup of Water
Mod Podge 
Sponge Brush


Step 1:
Start painting the whole page with analogous colors: The colors located close together on a color wheel. This way the colors can easily blend together. The more water you add, the more the colors will look faded. The painting will look a little different once it starts to dry so, you can always add more layers until you love it. Here is the process of my watercolor painting!

Step 2:
Cut out the outline of your state but keep the inside part. Also, cut out the heart where your town is located.

Step 3:
Trace the outline of your state with a pencil on your dry watercolor painting and cut it out. Notice that I painted with the paper horizontally but ended up liking the colors vertically. So, don't be afraid to try all different angles with your outline to see what you like best. 

Step 4:
Then, trace the heart on the pink part of the paper and cut it out. Place the inside part of the state on top of the cut out watercolor, so you can get the right placement of where your town is located.

Step 5:
Mod Podge the heart down first and let it dry. Then, Mod Podge the whole state down onto the canvas. And you are done!!

Hope this DIY will help change up your wall.
If you have lived in multiple different states you could make them all and line them up across your wall! I think that could be so cute to have each state be a different color.

I would love to see your pictures if you do make your state decor! Tweet me @fashionx16
