Joyful Creations - Canvas Wall Art

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   I finally finished my canvas project this weekend, and I just love how it came out. Here is my inspriation for this project.

I love how sweet and simple the design is on the canvas, but so colorful and cheerful at the same time.

Here is my canvas wall art and instructions on how to make your own.

Supplies Needed:

- 2 Canvas'
- Paint in various colors
- Sponges
- A helpful husband to hang your pictures (this is an option supply needed)

I used inexpensive acrylic paint from the craft store.


When I was at the craft store I spotted these thick triangles that were perfect for using as my stencil. Plus a set of 3 was only $1.00, and I can use them again for other projects. 

I traced the triangle shape using a pencil

Then I started the fun part, PAINTING!

I free handed the "string" that connected each little pennant. 

Since this art work is for my bedroom I thought it would be fun to write "I Love You" on it just for fun.  I picked up these stencils at Walmart for a few dollars.  

It is finally looking just how I imagined it would look. 

I stapled some soft satin ribbon to the back of each canvas so it could hang by the ribbon. 

Here is my sweet husband hanging our new art work. 

I just love how they came out!

I hope you had a great Monday!


Pin It Now!


  1. I'm having fun with acrylic paint too! It's help to chase my blues away after a week of vacation with my kids who live 7 hours away. I've done the same painting 4 times. One more time and I hope to get it where Iwant it:) Isn't learning fun! Sweet new project!

  2. HOW FUN!!! Your project came out so sweet. Love the lettering.
