Homemade Canvas Decor

Today I have some homemade canvas decor to share with you.

We got Emily some new bathroom decor from Target. This is from the Circo brand. 

We got the shower curtain and new rugs, but Target didn't have any home decor pieces to match.

 I loved the chevron style and the colors. 

I looked through my stash of craft items and knew that I could easily make some home decor pieces to match.

Here is what I made. 

The piece on the left is a piece of scrapbook paper and canvas.  That is all, but I love the look.

Her are the supplies. 

12x12 canvas
Americana Decou-page
12x12 scrapbook paper

The paper I used is by Studio Calico Lemon Lush collection called Passionate. 

I just brushed the decou-page onto the back of the paper and adhered it to the canvas. 

I also brushed a thin coat of decou-page onto the front of the paper. 

The next set of canvases are made up of paint and a stencil. 

I used the shower curtain as my inspiration piece. 

I had 3 - 6x12 Blick Studio canvases on hand and luckily I had every paint color on hand that matched the shower curtain. 

First, I painted the canvases with a coat of gesso. 

I cut a 6x12 chevron stencil using my Silhouette Cameo. 

I used washi tape to hold down my stencil and then used makeup sponges to apply the paint over the stencil onto the canvas and then let them dry. 

That is all it took to make matching wall decor. 

I love them!

I always love it when I can make home decor with supplies from my stash.

Thank you for looking!

Hugs, Shelly
