Create Your Own Canvas Wall Art Pieces with Cutting Edge Stencils!
Aside from the cute chuckle we got from reading it, we also had a bit of an aha moment.¬† We’re huge art lovers and we can’t imagine what our world would look like without it.¬† In fact the only thing we love more than art, is stenciled wall art!¬† Why, might you ask? Because stenciling a piece of wall art is not only a great way to creatively enhance your space but it’s also an easy project especially for a first time stencilers.¬† Today, we’re going to share four of our favorite stencils¬† to use when stenciling a piece of canvas art.¬† Let’s take a look…
Magnolia Vines Stencil:
More DIY Home Decor Ideas and Resources
Have you ever thought about getting a group of your girlfriends together for a craft night? Sounds like fun, right?¬† First up on your list of projects could be stenciled wall art!¬† This is exactly what Jessica, the crafty blogger behind The Lovely Side, did with a group of her girlfriends.¬† The girls spread drop cloths across the living room floor and then they painted mounted canvases using acrylic paints and stencils like our Magnolia Vines Stencil.¬† We think it’s a CRAFT-tastic idea!
Zinnia Grande Stencil:
The project on the right was painted by stencil queen Kimbo, the blogger behind Girl and Glue Gun.¬† You might remember her Houndstooth lamp shade we featured not too long ago. Well she created this lovely Zinnia Grande stenciled wall art for her daughter’s room.¬† First she painted the canvas baby pink by Americano and then she applied DecoArt Dimensional Paste.¬† She applied the paste as if she were frosting a cake, and let it dry.¬† Kimbo says, “So pretty. So interesting. I want to make a bazillion of them.”¬† We couldn’t agree more!
Birch Forest Stencil:
Now here’s a great stencil that can serve a duel purpose, just like it did for Liz, the crafty DIYer behind the blog Smart Girls DIY.¬† She used this stencil to create a custom canvas wall art for her dining room.¬† First she coated the canvas with a metallic paint color and then she painted the Birch Forest Stencil in an eye-catching teal.¬† It’s teal-rific, don’t you think?¬† Once she got the knack for stenciling, she painted a focal wall in her living room!
Moroccan Dream Stencil
Are you looking to add lots of color with your stenciled canvas art?¬† Then you’re going to like our next project. Meet Beth, the decorating enthusiast behind the blog Home Stories AtoZ. She was asked to help makeover the Nicholas House, a homeless shelter for families in Atlanta.¬† Since 35 of the 50 residents in the home are children, she wanted to create a dining room that screamed fun, happy, yummy, family, and smiles.¬† Beth originally thought she would stencil the whole wall, but quickly realized the project time frame didn’t allow for it.¬† She did the next best thing and stenciled a colorful canvas using our Moroccan Dream stencil. ¬† Beth definitely achieved the bright and cheery look she was going after.¬† The space looks gorgeous!
