Wall art can get expensive fast, but it is so easy to make your own using cheap plain canvases! This particular canvas project requires zero artistic skills. The options are endless for color combinations or size of the canvases. I think this would look particularly cool as a large grouping above a couch or bed.



Supplies for DIY Canvas Art

  • Plain canvases in a variety of shapes and sizes (there are different levels of quality; buy the cheapest, and try to get them on sale! The canvases I used were between $2-$5 each)
  • Acrylic craft paint in your choice of colors (I used a blue / green palette of Martha Stewart all-purpose craft paints)
  • Foam brush
  • Painters tape (I used ½” wide tape to tape off the edges of the canvases, which is optional)

    i love the simplicity of this, but when you hang the different sizes and colors together it looks amazing!
