Buliding Blocks Wall Art

Make multidimensional art with moulding pieces painted in cool colors and arranged in a checkerboard pattern. The repetition of circles and squares keeps the look simple and perfect for any casual space.
The artwork’s square shape perfectly fits this blank wall. If needed, cut the size of the plywood sheet to accommodate your space.

Step 1: Lightly sand the plywood piece, and wipe clean. Apply spray primer and spray paint to the piece, allowing each coat to dry.

Step 2: Divide 18 wooden rosettes into four groups. (You’ll have five rosettes in two groups and four rosettes in two other groups.) Spray-paint each group a different color, and allow to dry. TIP: Apply two or three light coats rather than one heavy coat.

Step 3: Arrange the rosettes in rows on the plywood piece, alternating colors as shown here. Align the edges of the outer rosettes with the plywood edges. Use wood glue to attach the rosettes to the plywood piece. Allow glue to dry completely.

Step 4: Hang the project using picture hangers and appropriate hardware for your wall type.
