How to turn coloring pages into wall art ? Creating coloring pages can be tons of fun, but many people don’t know what to do with them after they’re done. If you have art supplies on hand, however, there are lots of ways to turn your coloring pages into wall art that will transform your home! Here are some ideas and inspiration for turning coloring pages into wall art. This article will show you step-by-step how to turn coloring pages into wall art in no time at all!

What you need

Painter’s tape, X-Acto knife or sharp pair of scissors, and a printer. Most newspaper coloring sheets print out on 8.5×11 paper, which is too big for most frames so you’ll need to cut them down.

Start by taping off an area about two inches in from all four sides of your sheet. Then, carefully use an X-Acto knife or sharp pair of scissors to cut along those lines so that you have one large piece (the frame) and four smaller pieces (the matting).

You can do as many as you want at once; just make sure they’re all exactly 2 inches apart before cutting.

How to turn an image into something real

In order to accomplish a project like turning coloring books into amazing pieces of framed artwork, you’ll first need to download an image onto your computer. You’ll also need a few tools,  a printed version of your downloaded image, a pencil, ruler, cutting board, and knife. Follow these easy steps and voila you have unique artwork for any room in your house.
1. Place your downloaded image on top of a piece of paper and trace around it with a pencil.
2. Cut out that section from the paper using a cutting board and sharp knife or scissors (this is easier than it sounds)
3. Create another tracing from your cut-out paper template using either an electronic copy or print out of your original image (once again, trace around it with a pencil).
4. Tape your new tracing onto a piece of construction paper and start painting!
5. When you’re done painting, place both pieces of construction paper together on top of your downloaded image so they line up perfectly.
6. Using a ruler as a straight edge, cut along both sides of your traced lines until you have one big piece that looks like your original downloaded image.
7. Frame your artwork and hang it in a prominent spot in your house for all to see!
8. Decorate each frame with paint pens, glitter glue, or stickers for extra flair.
9. Repeat steps 1 through 8 until every room has unique artwork hanging on its walls

Preparing the page

What you’ll need? Colored pencils, crayons, or markers; a printer; and some sort of paper. For best results, use a heavier paper stock (like cardstock) rather than regular printer paper. Also, make sure your page is printed in color and not black-and-white.

You can also print it on sticker paper if you want a glossy finish instead of matte. If you’re looking for a particular style or pattern, search online for printable coloring pages. Once you find something you like, print out as many copies as needed. For larger projects, try printing onto poster board or foam board from an office supply store.

These boards are sturdy enough to support intricate details but easy enough to cut with scissors. After printing, cut out your image with scissors or an X-Acto knife—whatever works best for you!

Creating the stencil

If you have experience with cutting and/or stenciling, you can make a stencil for your project. If not, there are plenty of options for printing out or having pre-made stencils shipped to you. You can then use spray paint (the acrylic kind is easiest on walls) or other methods of applying color. Once it’s dry, simply peel off your stencil and enjoy! If you want to be extra fancy, go over some areas with glitter glue after everything dries.

Finishing touches

It’s easy to get carried away with a bunch of decorative details at once, but you’ll want to pick and choose where you make your focal points. To avoid going overboard, start small by choosing one or two finishing touches (like pops of color or patterns) for each room in your house. Then gradually add more as you move through each space, so that everything remains cohesive and on the theme. Plus, when it comes time to redecorate down the road, all those little details will be easily incorporated into your new look.
