I am sure a lot of you have probably seen this project all over Pinterest. I saw it, was intrigued, and decided to give it a try. And now I am sharing it with you because I LOVED IT. It was really fun to make, totally customizable, and really pretty in the end! Next time you need to add some decor to your home, make this DIY Canvas Wall Art! Here is how I did it . . .
Gather These Supplies
- Washable glue
- Spray paint or craft paint in the color of your choice
- Saying – you’ll either hand draw or print
- Transfer paper (optional)
Step 1: Think of/find a pattern that inspires you, and draw/trace it on your canvas with pencil.
Now if you aren’t feeling very creative or you want to make it more exact, there is another option. You can print something from the internet and place the paper down on the canvas with a piece of carbon transfer paper in between. Trace with your pencil and the design will end up on the canvas!
Step 2: Go over your design with glue. Make sure you don’t press the glue down as you apply. If you find that your glue settles flatter than you want, go over your design one more time once it has dried. You could also use dimensional fabric paint for this project.
Step 3: Let the glue dry (I let mine dry overnight).
Step 4: Spray paint the canvas any color! I liked the clean look of white on white.
Step 5: Let dry completely.
Step 6: Hang up your canvas wall art and admire your work!
