Crafting is not only creative and fun, it can be a nice stress relief. Letting inspiration guide you can really boost your mood. Seeing your final master piece is exciting. The instructions below are simple to follow for you to turn a blank canvas into home decor. Select a color that best matches your home.
- Framed Canvas
- Dark colored acrylic Paint
- White Acrylic Paint
- Foam Paint Brush
- Clear Sealant (Modge Podge works well too)
- A popsicle stick or something to mix paint with
- Vinyl Decal or Stickers
Pour 3-4 tablespoons of your dark colored paint onto a paper plate. Using your foam brush, paint a 1-2 inch (dependent on the size of canvas used) strip of color, ensuring that the sides are painted as well.
Add 1 small drop of white paint to the darker color and mix well. Paint your next strip of color, overlapping the first color by a ¼ inch.
Repeat this process with each strip, adding a drop or two of white for each new line until canvas is covered.
Allow to dry for 4-5 hours.
Decide the placement of your decal and apply it according to the directions.
Smooth out any air bubbles and apply a clear coat to keep everything in place.
Now comes the most difficult part…. deciding where to hang it!
