Decorating a room, office, or study space doesn’t have to be a chore, and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to make a powerful impact! Having a theme in the decor of a room can be as simple as a single color, which makes this next project the perfect solution to any bare walls you might have wanted to decorate. Finding that “perfect” piece of art can take a long time…so, while you wait, why not just make something yourself?
For this project, you’ll need a piece of canvas, a few doilies, and spray paint in the color of your choosing. (Yes, really!) While some crafters may want to use an adhesive spray to keep the doilies firmly in place, it is an optional step.
First, grab a canvas. If you don’t have a canvas, can’t afford to purchase one, or don’t feel like going to the store, you have the option of simply painting an existing canvas white. This particular project is great for giving new life to old, ruined, or outdated frames and artworks.
Once you have your canvas, lay it on a cloth or take it outdoors to avoid getting spray paint anywhere else. At this point, you can spray a bit of adhesive to the back of your doilies to keep them in place.
Next, spray a light layer of paint over the entire canvas. Wait a moment for it to dry before coating the canvas in another layer. Spray lightly until there is no more white canvas showing.
The, remove your doilies…and reveal your new piece of art! Do you love this idea, or is it a little old fashioned for your tastes? You can find more details on this project here!
