Step 1: Materials List
Here's how to do to do it. You will need...
- a large piece of plywood
- white paint
- sponge brush
- purple crayon
- purple string (yarn works best)
- glue gun
- Optional: purple glitter / felt shapes / stickers etc. (not shown)
Step 2: Prep Plywood
To begin, paint the plywood with white and let dry. If you remember from the book, Harold draws with his purple crayon on a white background.
Step 3: Add a Purple Crayon
Now, grab a purple crayon and use hot glue to attach it to the bottom corner of your plywood.
Step 4: Add Purple Yarn and Other Embellishments
Now, cut a few pieces of purple yarn and let your imagination run free! You can even throw on some purple glitter, felt shapes, and even stickers to jazz up your wall art! That's optional, but you don't necessarily have to do it! Anything goes, as long as there's lots of purple in it!
Step 5: Hang Them Up
Now, you can hang up your purple masterpiece on your wall! Of course, purple is one of the colors that represents creativity, and in addition, you won't be disappointed about not drawing anything on your own walls! After all, it IS wall art!
