It’s hard to believe that this is the first paint pouring craft we’ve shared on our blog! Knowing how much fun it is to do, we’re excited to share this DIY beachy-themed decorative seahorse craft idea.
An Acrylic Paint Pouring Craft
Although we have done a similar craft with this DIY ocean resin art piece, I love, love, love that this latest paint pouring craft doesn’t require any resin at all! And yet, the finished pieces looks just as impressive and professional as the one made with resin. By adding the lustrous metallic acrylic paint in to the mix gives the piece the extra bit of dimension it needs.

Paint Pouring a Wooden Seahorse (or any wooden surface)
To follow along with the making of this paint poured seahorse, head over to our Facebook page and watch the video tutorial here.
Afterwards, I had to leave the seahorse to dry fully before I decked it out in all beachy goodness. Things like charms, seashells and a beachy phrase were added with a bit of hot glue and some simple twine. You can check out exactly how I decorated the paint poured seahorse in the second part of the video here.
