How to Wednesday; Quick Canvas Painting

Canvas art is a great addition to any event.  It is a timeless piece that can be used both at an event, and then recycled into your own home.  It is also a very inexpensive addition that can make a large impact in terms of decor.  Today we are going to share with you a simply way to spruce up a plain white canvas.  

What you will need: 
  • A plain white canvas of any size
  • Peel and stick letters (make sure they are the size you want).
  • Paintbrush
  • Acrylic crafting paint
  • A ruler 
You begin with your plain white canvas.  Decide whether or not you want it to be a horizontal work of art or a vertical one.  

Take your peel and stick letters, and your ruler.  

Place the ruler in a straight line across the canvas.  This will be your guide to keeping your letter straight.
Take your peel and stick letters and remove each letter one at a time, and place them on the canvas to make a saying.  This could be (Happy Birthday, Jone's Family Established on 00/00/00 etc.).  The goal is to make it a piece of art that can be used again.  

Once the letters are placed on the canvas, check to make sure they are all straight. Correct any non straight letter, or any letter that is bent.  

You will then take your paint and paintbrush and begin painting over the entire canvas. Make sure you cover the letters as well as all the white area of the canvas.  You may want to do a couple of coats.

Once the paint has dried begin removing the peel and stick letters one at a time, very slowly.  

The finished product is a multi-purposee work of art that will be great for both your home, and your event.
