Disney Watercolor Wall Art

After remodeling our entire living room which leads into a hallway, I knew that I wanted to create something for our hallway that was bright, inspirational and encompassed something our family loves.  I was wandering the aisles at the store and came across some watercolor paper on clearances, which lead to a light bulb moment.  I was going to create a watercolor art piece and it was going to be Disney themed.

When I arrived home from the store I jumped on social media and asked my friends to give me a list of iconic Disney items and some inspirational words that describe them.  The list was incredible and included a billion ideas that I had to choose from.  I chose to go with the boot from Wall-E, The house from Up and the fork from The Little Mermaid.

Once I knew what I was going to create, I then used the Crayola watercolor set to blend various colors that I felt represented each of those movies.  For The Little Mermaid I used blue and purple for the ocean and Ariel’s shell top.  When thinking of Wall-E I used orange and green and overlapped in the middle to represent the plant and the dirt. Rounding out the watercolors I decided to do a rainbow ombre to represent Up.

Customizing with Cricut

Look if I could draw, I would, but I cannot so instead I use Cricut to create and honestly, it is worth every penny.  To create the Disney items, I went to Google and searched for black and white images of the house, boot and fork.  I then uploaded them to Cricut Design Space and made them into cut images. From there, I used the Waltograph font that I downloaded to my operating system for free and wrote out the inspirational words.

I welded the words together and then sent them to be cut to my Cricut Explore Air 2.  I grabbed some permanent black Cricut vinyl and loaded it onto the blue light grip mat.  Following the directions on the screen, I cut out the designs and then weeded them.

Once that was done, I grabbed my transfer paper and the dried sheets of watercoloring and began to transfer the images and words onto the watercolor paper.  You can grab the cut images through Cricut Design Space here if you want to recreate this for your own home.

Here is the series of these DIY inspirational Disney watercolor wall art pieces.  I purchased some cheap black frames to place each art piece in and hung them on our hallway wall.  They are right outside our bedrooms and I love that when we walk out we are reminded each day that we can grow, be innovative and that each day is an adventure.
