Hi Everyone! I’m super pumped to be back today for another Monthly DIY Challenge! This month’s theme is “Canvas” and we were all challenged to do something fun and original with a plain art canvas of any size.
Here are the supplies I used to create my colourful driftwood canvas art:
- A plain artist’s canvas – mine was 10×12, but you can use any size you want!
- Blue Paint
- Painter’s Tape
- A foam brush
- Sisal Rope – I always have this kind on hand for little projects.
- A utility knife (not shown)
- Driftwood pieces (or pretty twigs if you don’t have actual driftwood)
The whole idea behind the Monthly Challenge is we pick one item and then a bunch of us bloggers make something with it and blog about it on the Second Wednesday of every month. Last month, our theme was “Metallic”. Today I’m here to show you –
How to Wow your Walls with Wonderful Colorful Driftwood Canvas Art
Use your painter’s tape to create stripes on your canvas and then paint away. I measured to make sure my driftwood pieces would basically fit.
The next step is to measure and pierce holes in the canvas so you can affix your driftwood. I didn’t really measure because each piece of wood was different. So I just eyeballed it. Then I cut pieces of sisal rope about 6″ long and fed them through the holes.
You might have noticed this piece as part of the gallery wall above our new fauxdenza. I’m really happy with how it’s graphic and textured and fits with our modern beach house theme.
