DIY Chevron Painted Canvas

Hello Friends!  Hope you are enjoying all of these fun Valentines ideas.  I don’t typically create so much for holidays other than Christmas, but I’m having sooo much fun using pink that I just cannot stop!  Now it’s time to show-off how I created the last component of my Valentines Mantle…

Supplies needed:

Canvas in desired size

stencil of choice

pencil

cutting surface

acrylic paint

paint brush(s)

Embellishments

How To:

Step 1: Find or make a stencil you like.  I found this template online and just printed it out on computer paper.

Step 3:  Moving on to the canvas…Give it a good coating of paint.  I used acrylic and it took a couple coats.  Allow thorough drying time.painting canvas {onekriegerchick.wordpress.com}Step 4: Lightly trace your stencil onto the canvas using a pencil.

Step 6: Embellish your canvas.  I would really like to to use this canvas for other holidays than Valentines, so I did not want my embellishments to be permanent.  I cut out the image on my die cut machine and adhered them with glue dots.  That way, when Easter comes along I can simply peel this image off and add a cross or bunny or eggs…I may have to paint another canvas!

Here is the canvas in my Mantle grouping:
