Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Wall Decor

This post brought to you by FloraCraft.

Do you have a TMNT fan in your house? I LOVE that these green dudes are back in style. I grew up on them! I still remember running off the bus and heading to the living room with a snack to relax and watch a little Turtle Power. My son is a fan, but my nephew is a MEGA-FAN. Seriously, I gave him a pair of my sons hand-me-down TMNT PJ Pants and he went bonkers. He was so excited. I think I scored Aunt-of-the-Year with that little move. But I’m not content with that title, so I’m going for Aunt-of-the-Decade. And how am I going to accomplish that? Well, hello DIY TMNT Wall Decor:

DIY TMNT Wall DecorAs part of the Make It: Fun 2014 Design Team, FloraCraft sent me a box of goodies and challenged me to come up with a gift idea. These TMNT Wall Hangings were the result. And they were seriously SO EASY to make. Want to learn how?

Supplies Needed:

STYROFOAM™ Foam Discs – Mine were 10″

1″ STYROFOAM™ Balls

Small amount of Fleece in the color of your Turtle – I used red and orange scraps

Green Spray Paint

Black Sharpie

Black Paint

White Paint

Hot GlueDIY TMNT Wall DecorThe first step is to spray your STYROFOAM™ discs green. Make sure that you don’t get too close with the spray or it will eat your styrofoam. I did about three coats on the front and sides of the disc.

DIY TMNT Wall DecorAfter the discs are dry, it is time to add the mask. I cut a strip of fleece fabric that was about 2″ tall. I held it up to the disc and trimmed to the desired length, leaving it about 3″ longer than needed so that I could create a little tail. Set the masks aside, grab your 1″ STYROFOAM™ Ball and cut it in half. I used the StyroCutter® Plus, which cuts foam like buttah!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Wall DecorNext, hot glue the mask in place. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Wall DecorGlue your eyes in place on top of your mask. (You could also use large google eyes). Add a pupil to the eyes with a black Sharpie. I then added black paint over that to fill in any holes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Wall DecorThe last step is to draw on the mouth and nose. I looked at several pictures of the Turtles to get an idea for how I wanted my mouth. I then used a Sharpie to draw it on and used paint to fill it in and make it darker. For the nose I did a stretched out, upside down U. Set aside to dry and you’re done! I think these will look great in my nephews room! I have some more discs so I might just have to complete the set. I think these would also be awesome TMNT Party Decor!
