My Dad Thinks I’m a Princess
This weekend was quite a busy one. House warming parties, birthdays, and family time. I can tell you one thing, I slept good last night!
My youngest sister’s birthday is today (happy birthday Carol!), but since she has school today, she wanted to do something to celebrate yesterday. Enter The Princess Diaries.
It’s always been one of my favorite movies, I can quote (almost) the whole movie. This scene is one of my favorites:
It’s way more complicated in real life, but just as fun as it looks! There are tons of different ways to do this, but if you’ve ever wondered how to recreate this in real life, read on.
Things you’ll need:
Water Bottles (with the squirt tops)
Lots of towels/tarps
Step 1: Fill empty water bottles with about 50% paint, 50% water. It doesn’t have to be perfect and you may need to adjust it depending on the color and consistency on the canvas.
Step 2: Fill water balloons with paint mixture. This takes practice and patience–and this is where you will likely get the messiest!
Step 3: Tie off balloons and fasten them to the canvas. We used pushpins at the top of the canvas (see image above)
Step 4: Throw darts at balloons and watch the art come alive!
Don’t get discouraged if you are terrible at throwing darts–it takes practice! Also, the darts may make small holes in your canvas, but the paint covers it up!
The canvases came out so cute (it’s on my Snapchat now–aellzey and Instagram–allison_ellzey) and it was the perfect way to spending a Sunday afternoon!
