DIY Blue Florals Décor
Looking for a way to make your Helen Dealtry Tattly a little more permanent? All you need is a little water and some up-cycled ceramics...
This DIY décor project was inspired by the artist's original blue watercolor series and her new Blue Florals Tattly Set. Since Dealtry's watercolors are already a staple in Anthropologie's textile collection, it wasn't a far leap to realize how versatile her wearable art could be when it came to interior decoration.
(Fun fact: Dealtry includes a complementary Tattly in the order when she sends out her original watercolors and prints. Shop her work here.)
- Tired ceramics that need some color
- Helen Dealtry's Blue Florals Set
- Sponge & Water
1. Start with your Tattly & sponge, a pair of scissors, and clean, up-cycled ceramics. (Here we used CB2!)
2. Remove the plastic film and trim the Tattly close to the design. This will make it easier to place the florals exactly where you want them, and it also helps the paper bend and better adhere to round surfaces.
3. Choose your placement and press down lightly.
4. Add water to your sponge until it's wet but not dripping, and press down firmly and gently onto the design. Make sure the paper is completely soaked through and you've applied pressure to each section before attempting to remove the paper.
5. Check a corner before peeling off the paper entirely.
6. Et voila! You can enjoy these beautiful designs for longer with a clear sealant.
