know a lot of you have probably seen this project all over Pinterest,
but I actually made it for myself, and I had to share for a couple reasons:
- Reason 1: It was so fun.
If you are like me, I get half way into a DIY project and wonder what
the heck I was thinking and I want to give up. Not the case with this
- Reason 2: It is 100% customizable. You can make it classic, contemporary, red, yellow, green, blue, whatever you want.
3: It looks so pretty/cute/fancy in the end. I try to avoid DIY
projects that look like DIY projects, and this nailed it for me. It
really looks like something that could have been sold for lots of money
at a boutique.
So, first off, here is what you will need:
Then you dive in! Find a pattern that inspires you, and
draw it on the canvas with the glue. You can trace it lightly with
pencil first if you want to be safe.
You could also use dimensional fabric paint for this project. If you use glue and find that it settles flatter than you want, you can just go over everything one more time once it has dried.
Once the glue is dry (I let mine dry overnight), spray paint the canvas the color(s) of your choice.
I liked the clean look of white on white.
Hang it up and be inspired! What design and/or phrase would you put on your canvas? We love to hear your ideas!
