Canvas wall decor does not have to be the domain of the rich. Creating your own using canvas and other art materials is a simple and pleasing decoration option. Canvas wall art projects can be very basic and require little in the way of artistic ability. On the other hand, some projects may include specific skills, such as lettering or freehand drawing. You can decide for yourself which level of difficulty is the most comfortable.

It does not take strong artistic skills to create your own wall decorations using canvas. Stretched art cloths come in a variety of forms and are available at most art supply stores. Square and rectangular cloths are the easiest to work with, but can also come in round and oval shapes. These canvases make the perfect foundation for this project. Perhaps the easiest way to create home-made canvas wall decorations is to buy fabric that coordinates with the room’s decor and attach this fabric to the wooden frame of the canvas with a staple gun. Be sure to draw the fabric as you staple. The fabric rests on top of the cloth that the cloth provides a support.
Paint stretched canvas a base color with acrylic paint and decoupage pictures or fabric swatches on top of the canvas for one of a kind collage. Use a product called Mod Podgy to attach the images or fabric to the canvas. Put a top coat of Mod Podgy in the end. Use decorative stamps to create a design on painted stretched canvas panels. Paint half of the stretched canvas a solid color with acrylic craft colors. Paint the other half of the canvas a contrasting color and create a pattern by coating the decorative stamp with color and applying the stamp in a random pattern on the contrasting half of the fabric. Fill three or four squirt guns with coordinating colors of acrylic craft paint and spray a random pattern on a blank canvas for a simple and tailor-made modern art project. Or use stiff brushes to create a splash paint effect.
For a more challenging project, use masking tape to create different geometric shapes on stretched canvas. Create a design and apply a base coat of acrylic paint to the stretched fabric. When the color is dry, mask your geometric design and apply paint within the masked areas. Carefully remove the tape when this color is dry. If you are good at letters, create wall decorations for children’s rooms by writing the child’s name on the canvas and then surrounding the name with simple painted patterns.
