What if I told you, that you do not have to stick with the same old boring generic print art? Well, Sparkle Chicks, that is what is on the Blog today! We are taking this pig on a fence art and making it totally our own. We did this over 2 lives so you can catch the replays HERE and HERE. Grab your art print friend and let’s get started.
What You’ll Need
- Hobby Lobby Print (I used the pig on the fence from there)
- Fake Flowers
- Mod Podge
- Diamond Dust (Get it HERE)
- Hot Glue (Get it HERE) & Hot Glue Gun
- Sticky Diamond Strips (Dollar Store)
- Spider (Dollar Store)
- Crown (Get it HERE)
- Wood Beads for frame (Get them HERE)
- Dazzled Bling (Get your HERE)
- Paint Brush or sponge brush for Mod Podge
- Large paper to work on
- Heat Gun (Get it HERE) optional
- Pearl style beads
Let’s get started
First thing we are going to do is grab our Mod Podge and brush. Paint the Mod Podge over the image where you will want to place Diamond Dust. (I like doing this in sections to ensure proper adhesion)
Tip: Do this project over a clean sheet of paper, that way you can save and reuse your Diamond Dust.
Add that sparkle
Sprinkle on your Diamond Dust on top of your wet Mod Podge. Next tip your art over and let the excess dust fall onto your paper. (You’ll collect all that later to use for another day) Once fully done you can either let it dry on its own or use a heat gun.
After all the Diamond Dust is finished, take your paper and simply pour the excess Dimond Dust back into your storage container.
Start off by taking the flowers you’ll want to use and trimming them from the stems. (You may need wire cutters.) Next trim down or remove the extra bit of greenery that would prevent the flower from sticking nicely. Finally Take your hot glue and attach your flowers to where you would like them on the canvas.
I chose to place them on the crown, and along the fence. I also added bead pearls to the center of the flowers with hot glue for a little extra bling.
Make it your own
With suggestions from my ladies on live, we gave our sweet little piggy a bracelet using pearl beads and bling from Dazzled Bling. to make it our own, we also added a crown (which came from amazon), and a little ring. Attach all the extras with a little E600 and Hot Glue.
We had a little fun with it and made Miss Wilber a Charlotte friend.
Next take take a pencil and trace out on your art where you will want your spider web, this will help when laying the diamond strips.
Start by taking your diamond strips and measuring them out to your traced lines. Since these are already sticky you don’t have to add extra glue. Next take your spider add some E6000 and hot glue and stick down your spider.
Finally take your wooden beads and blue them to the edge of your canvas art to create a frame.
This was such a great project to breathe life into so-so prints. This art DIY is a great way to update décor with your own style, don’t you think? I hope you join us on our next live video, keep being sparkly friends. Until next time!

Kathy! I have been following you for several months now as I am a diy, creative, crafter too! I have to admit that I am not much of a sparkler girl but you have me obsessed over this pig!! So now I’m off the hobby Lobby in search of Peppa and supplies to give this a try! But I will have to hide the diamond dust because the two grandaughters will be dusting everything in sight!
Thanks for the inspiration Kathy and sending warm wishes for healing hearts to you and your family.
lol Diamond dust it girlfriend! I love it! xoxo

Just wondering where I might purchase the gold and silver leaves that you used around the flowers. I haven’t had luck locating any of them.
HEY! I got all those from Hobby Lobby! Some near the wedding florals and others in the bins for spring florals!
