DIY: Spray Paint Canvas Art


We're getting closer and closer to Christmas and that got us thinking - what are we going to get our friends for Christmas? This year we though we'd go the DIY route and make something that will be a great gift!


What you need:

  • Canvases

  • Elmer's glue

  • Spray paint

  • Pencil + Ruler


Step 1

This DIY is so simple and easy, and the cool thing is that you can use any pattern that inspires you!

Tip: You can find a canvas at any local art store.



Step 2

Mark out the design or letters you want to create on the canvas using a pencil and a ruler.


Step 3

Once you have created your design, grab your fast setting wood glue and carefully go over your penciled letters or shapes.

Place your masterpiece aside and allowed the glue to dry - letting this dry overnight is best.


Step 4

Once the glue had dried fully, its time for the fun part. We decided to spray paint the canvas with a bright luminous blue colour - something that will really brighten up the room. You don't have to stick to once shade or colour though.


Tip: Make sure your colours don't mix by protecting half the canvas with a drop sheet. Then you can create a nice transition between the two colours.



And there you have it! A beautiful DIY Christmas present!
