How To Create a Classy Chevron Carrot Tabletop Art
Tabletop art gives life to our plain old tables in our homes or even in our own offices. These tabletop arts can also adapt a theme, in accordance to the season. Since Easter is just around the corner, we will be making a thematic tabletop art. Carrot, commonly linked to rabbits, that are part of the Easter symbols, will be used as the subject of this tabletop art. We will use a chevron design in the background to create a classy feel to it. If you are in the mood for some art stuff, then this is the right time to make this. Let us start!
Step 1: Prepare all the materials needed for this activity:
- red and blue acrylic paint
- paint brushes
- masking tape or paper tape
- orange construction paper
- green construction paper
- gray construction paper
- short pointed scissor
- black pen
- white glue
Step 2: Make a series of chevron on the cardboard using a masking tape or paper tape.
Step 3: Paint the lower part of the board with blue acrylic paint.
Step 4: Paint the topmost part of the cardboard with red acrylic paint.
Step 5: Using both brushes, blend the blue in the bottom and the red on top in the middle of the cardboard to form a purple color. This should look like a color gradient from blue to red.
Step 6: Let the paint dry for an hour or two.
Step 7: While waiting for the paint to dry, cut the orange paper lengthwise into two equal parts. Sketch the body of the carrot using a pencil.
Step 8: Finalize the carrot body using a black pen.
Step 9: Cut the carrot body drawing.
Step 10: Sketch the top leaf of the two carrots using a pencil. Finalize the drawing using a black pen afterwards.
Step 11: Cut the top leafs accordingly.
Step 12: Glue the top leafs on the body of the carrots.
Step 13: Glue the carrots on the grey paper. Let the white glue dry for a while.
Step 14: Cut the carrots but leave a small border from the grey paper, thus creating a 3D-ish effect.
Step 15: Once the paint dries from the board, remove the masking tape or paper tape carefully. You can now see the chevron on the board.
Step 16: Arrange the carrots on the chevron board based on your preference. Glue it on the board to permanently fix it.
Step 17: Done! You now have your classy chevron carrot tabletop art.
Step 18: The Easter-inspired tabletop art is now ready for display.
You can also make a bigger version of this if you prefer one. You can also make several carrots of different sizes to create a more complex tabletop art. This Easter chevron carrot art can also be converted as a wall art, if you wish to have a larger scale of this. The chevron’s thickness can also be adjusted based on your own preference. Anything is possible, as long as you use your wild imagination.
