How to Make Canvas Tree Wall Art

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.

Items Needed:

  • 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.
