Need a little harp art to spruce up your practice area? Or just need an excuse to buy some chocolate? Either way, I've got you covered with this easy textured foil harp art.
foil (mine is from Ferrero Rocher from a student)
cardboard (for the stand)
small piece of wood (cardboard would probably also work)
3d paint (hot glue would probably also work)
Permanent black marker (optional)
Draw a simple harp with puffy paint. Make sure the strings aren't too close together.
Let this dry really well.
Once the paint is totally dry, cover the piece of wood with glue.
Spread the glue all around the front of the wood, adding more glue if necessary.
Trim the foil flush with the edge of the wood and add extra glue if needed.
I colored the edges with a black permanent marker, but that part is optional. If you do this, I'd suggest doing it before gluing the foil down. Using paint instead of a marker would also probably give better coverage.
Cut out a stand shape and bend it so that it will hold up your art. Then, glue it to the back.
Once dry, display your lovely work of art!
