Have you seen my son’s Pokemon Bedroom? You have GOT to check it out! It is a dream for any Pokemon loving kiddo, and I am so thrilled with how it turned out. Years later, my little man is still loving the theme and having a ball bouncing around his bedroom dreaming and playing!
One of the stars of the show in his Pokemon bedroom is definitely this Pikachu art! I adore it. I can’t remember what inspired me to create this Pikachu art, but I can remember that it was a fun project that was much simpler then I thought it would be. Plus, most importantly, I was thrilled with how it turned out, which is always such a great feeling!
Let’s take a look at how I made it, shall we?
Here are the supplies that I used:
- a 24″ x 30″ canvas (Any large craft store with have that – I think I got mine at Hobby Lobby.)
- 84 POKEMON CARDS (I got mine HERE on Amazon. I’ve never seen a deal on them like this one!)
- spray glue
- Mod Podge
- a paint brush (for the Mod Podge – I prefer sponge brushes for Mod Podge)
- yellow posterboard
- black and red paper
- scissors and a pencil
Begin by laying out your Pokemon cards so that you like the color spread and look of the canvas.
Use spray glue to attach all of the Pokemon cards to the canvas.
Paint Mod Podge over the top of the Pokemon cards. USE LIBERALLY! It dries clear. Once it dries the cards should be firmly secured and smoothed onto the canvas. (You can add a second coat if needed.)
Next up is Pikachu. I am sorry, but I do not have a stencil for you. I just pulled up a Pikachu shape online and did my best to sketch it onto the yellow posterboard. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
Add black paper to the tips of the ears and red circles for the cheeks to give it a fun, abstract cartoon look.
Glue the Pikachu art onto the canvas. Paint the Mod Podge on TOP of the Pikachu art. USE LIBERALLY. Allow to dry. (You can add a second coat if needed.)
You are finished! Pika Pika PIKA!! HOORAY!
I hope that you little Pokemon fan loves this Pikachu art as much as mine does!
