Pop Art is bold, eye-catching and easy to create on a budget. All you need for this project is white poster-board, different color paints, thin painter's tape, circular objects and a pencil. To begin, use the painter's tape to outline the rectangles in the bottom portion of the poster. Then, using different circular forms, such as cups, a CD and a bottle cap, outline the rows of circles in the top half with a pencil -- if you are not a confident painter, you can tape these outlines too. Next, apply the paint. We like the juxtaposition of the bright orange against the deep plum, but use whichever colors match your home. Finally, let the paint dry, peel the tape off and frame it. The finished painting will look great hanging anywhere in your home, but would also make a fun homemade gift for the holidays.
