DIY Canvas Art

Here is how you can create a stamped canvas for yourself! It’s a fun project to spend your time this summer.

We all love making our own art pieces at home! It makes everything feel very personal and gives you a sense of pride for creating something truly special.

If you have some stamps, you’ll be surprised to know the number of ways in which you can use them! We scored a free blank canvas at school, and we’re excited about using it for something fun! Instead of painting over it go for the untraditional look. Create a stamped canvas!

Materials

  • Blank canvas any size
  • Individual stamp letters
  • Inkpad

Directions

Take your blank canvas and predetermine what you would like your stamped canvas to say! I chose a line from a song my husband wrote that is meaningful to him and I. You can choose almost anything: your favorite quote, a line from a movie, a sentence in a book, a verse of a song, it’s your pick! Once you decide, temporarily lay out your stamps onto the canvas to make sure it will fit nicely. Then you can tweak it, so it all looks evenly spaced, and the layout is pleasing to the eye. Take one letter at a time, stamp out all the letters onto the canvas until it’s all complete! You may want to gently roll your stamp from side to side when stamping on the canvas since working with fabric can be a little more work than paper. Let the ink completely dry before anything comes into contact with it! That’s all it takes! A super easy DIY, wouldn’t you say?
