I found inspiration for this DIY Canvas Art via Pinterest (it was originally featured somewhere on Design*Sponge). The inspiration is actually a chalkboard, but I was looking for a more permanent piece of art for our bedroom. I think this idea could easily be the foundation of a shower or wedding. You could carry the initials and colors (my preference is the black & white) all throughout – think invites, programs, menus, favor tags, etc. Then, at the end, you have a very personal piece of art for your home.
It was a fairly inexpensive piece to make, especially with my 40% coupon from Hobby Lobby.
You’ll need: canvas, spray paint, acrylic paint, a stencil and a paint brush
While the paint was drying, I made a stencil for our first initials. I actually took a lot of time to measure and draw straight lines. I didn’t want the canvas to look too free hand, so this helped me out.
