A Canvas Idea

Turn blank canvases into beautiful pieces of wall art! Display various sizes on a plate rack (as shown below). Dangle them from a metal rod. Mix and match and stack. The possibilities are endless!

The "Flower Child" collection from Bo Bunny was used to create this vertical display. To make something similar, format a favorite quote on your computer, then print it directly onto patterned paper.

TIP: Paper attaches very easily to canvas with a bit of spray adhesive.

Create dimension by layering chipboard embellishments. Accent them with decorative brads and rhinestones.

Don't be afraid to stack and layer canvases. This may make your project a little top heavy when displaying it, but you can remedy it by tying the back of the canvas to the plate rack.

So choose your favorite paper and embellishments and create one-of-a-kind art for your home!
