Homemade Canvas Decor
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.
Her are the supplies.
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.
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!
