Did you ever try “paint by numbers” as a kid? Just like coloring books, these kits are back and designed with adults in mind. Portland-based studio Elle Crée—whose name translates to “she creates” in French—has imagined a series of artist quality paint-by-numbers kits that will spark your next creative pastime.
Whether you want to delve into botanical illustration or portraiture, these all-inclusive kits have everything you need to get started. The Bird on a Cherry Blossom Branch features an exquisite design of a serene bluebird resting on a blossoming tree branch.

Or, if you're smitten with succulents, you can add another charming green plant to your collection with the Succulent in a Hobnail Bowl canvas kit.
Fans of Frida Kahlo can follow in the painter's footsteps by completing the Frida With Flowers portrait. This colorful kit celebrates the artist's iconic style, including her quintessential flower crown, statement jewelry, and ornately patterned clothing. Additionally, to alleviate your creative worries, the provided 8″ x 10″ canvas comes with a pre-printed background of turquoise or yellow Mexican folk art. Hang the completed painting to bring a touch of Frida to your home decor.
