Land of Nod Wall Art Knockoff

Did you guys check out round one over at Sew Dang Cute's Crafting with the Stars competition? The voting is over, so I thought I'd share a knockoff I did a couple of years ago that's similar to the Fruit Wall Art Land Of Nod Knockoff submitted by Amanda from Crafts by Amanda and Amy from Mod Podge Rocks. Here's my version...


These are the originals from Land of Nod (with a pretty hefty price tag over $100 each, I might add!)...

I thought they were so cute, so I made my own version almost two years ago when my oldest got her little kitchen for Christmas.


They hang on the wall in the playroom over the kitchen set (which actually did come from Land of Nod). 


Sorry I don't have any process pictures, but I wasn't blogging back when I made these. Here's a quick rundown of how I made them. I bought three 12" square canvases and painted them each a different color. I then drew an apple and a pear, cut them into the different pieces that I wanted, and used those pieces as templates to trace and cut out the different scrapbook papers that I used. Then all you do is mod podge them onto the canvases... super simple!

I'm linking this up over at the Round 1 Brand Inspired/Knockoff Link-Up at Sew Dang Cute! Go get inspired by some of the other knock-offs!
