Three-panel, dandelion wall art that lights up!

Guest post by Jessie Frazier

I love this idea from Jessie Frazier, who uploaded her three-panal light-up DIY dandelion art project to our Offbeat Home Flickr pool.

Check out how she created this luminous artwork in just four steps…


Phase one of my dandelion project, re-purposing three previously painted canvases with navy blue acrylic paint. (Note the trash bags taped to the walls and floor of my “studio” aka dining room.)


Phase two: my dandelion design gets a fun green stem!


Phase three: white fuzz and seeds! I ended up with too many seeds, so some were omitted before the project was finished.


The grand finale! I stabbed some holes with a screw driver and backlit the canvases with 100 mini string lights (which were a bear to get to lay flat behind the canvas).

If you have a DIY art project that you’re proud of/think would provide some inspiration to the Homies, don’t forget to upload it to our Flickr pool! We all wanna see.

  1. I’ve made similar canvas signs with this technique, but have trouble getting the string of lights to stay on the canvas. Hot glue works, but is messy. What is everyone else using? I’ve tried all kinds of tapes, without much success.
    Thanks for sharing!
