Fruit Turned Animal Art: 30 Creative Creations

I’m not sure I could eat any of these! Fruit is delicious but these creations are works of art. I can see some huge fails in my future if I were to attempt any of them. The watermelon dragon took some serious skill and banana Poseidon just blows my mind! I’m green with envy that some people are so talented.

See all the delicious creatures here…

Here is something fun! Keep this in mind the next time you are in need of a craft project, a gift, or there is a blank space on the wall that needs art. Take old buttons, keys, jewelry, or really anything that you like the look of and use them to make a pretty design. Create any shape that fits your fancy! Set your design, paint your “knick-knacks,”and frame them. Voila! The easiest craft/art that also will help you clean out the junk drawer.

Anastasia Elia’s Miniature Diorama Worlds

The medium Anastasia Elias uses for her artwork may seem strange but the finished pieces aren’t! She creates mini dioramas inside of toilet paper rolls. They are delicate and detailed, and they really do bring tiny worlds to life. Each roll has a small silhouette scene inside and they are then back lit to give that three dimensional feel. This isn’t what we made it Kindergarten folks!

Beautiful Butterfly Footprint Art

Mother’s Day is May 11th this year. It’s a hard holiday for me to remember because there isn’t an easy set of rules for when it will be. Thanksgiving is always the last Thursday in November and Christmas is always December 25th. Even though it may not always be on the same date, Mother’s Day is one of the most important holidays out there! Mom’s do so much for everyone around them and they need to be celebrated. Mommy Potamus turned her kiddos footprints into butterfly art for Mother’s Day and now I want to do the same! Gather up a canvas, some acrylic paint, brushes, and a marker. The best gifts are homemade ones!

Here’s the link to the tutorial…
