Hello and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

Last week, I shared three free printables and how to use them.

Today, we're making something shiny for your wall.

I think we all go through a "gold accent" phase at some point.

Personally, I'm not over mine just yet and if you're not either, then this week's DIY is just for you — a gold scallop artwork made of confetti circles.

Similar to the other gold-themed projects I've shared here on the blog (DIY Modern Mason Jars - 3 Ways, DIY Fridge Magnet Air Plant Holders, and DIY Gold Fall Leaf Marquee Light), this one is really simple and easy to make. 

Let's get started!

 

You'll need:

  • Gold confetti circles (I got this pack of 250 large pieces from Target for $2)
  • Regular or cardstock paper in your preferred color (I used black, white, and pink)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Frame or clipboard (optional)

Steps:

  1. Cut a bunch of gold confetti circles in half.
  2. Draw horizontal lines on the paper every 1.75" with a pencil.
  3. Using the lines as a guide, glue the gold scallops side by side onto the paper with the straight edge right on top of the line.  
  4. Optional: I personally didn't want the scallops aligned vertically so I started midway every other line (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc.) and then I just cut off the excess on the sides.  
  5. Insert the completed artwork in a frame, hang it on a clipboard, or display it in other ways to match your space.

There you go. Easy, right?

In case you get some glue smudges on the confetti like I did, simply rub it off with your finger or fingernail before it dries.
