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…
DIY Chevron Painted Canvas
Canvas in desired size
stencil of choice
Step 1: Find or make a stencil you like. I found this template online and just printed it out on computer paper.
Step 2: Cut out your stencil. I used an exacto knife on a self healing mat. If you do not have and exacto knife or mat, a small box cutter and magazine work fine too. Now your stencil is complete…easy, huh!
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.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:
Endless possibilities for this project! Have fun with it!
