24 Awesome DIY Canvas Art Ideas
Everyone is born creative. Children are living proof of this. Many people lose their creativity as they get older, but there’s no reason why you can’t get back into the creative spirit and see if you’ve still got it.
As you can see by many of the examples here, you don’t have to be Pablo Picasso or Rembrandt to create simple but effective canvas art to complement your interests, your family or the décor of your home. Stencil art and hand prints are used in some examples, while simple brush strokes and pictures cut calendars are used in others.
You’ll also find some more challenging DIY canvas art ideas in here too, if you’re up to being a bit more advanced in your art. This is of course a great read for those who are artists as well – either as a hobby or a profession. Even the most artistic people can often find themselves struggling for inspiration.
This list of 24 awesome DIY canvas art ideas will surely interest you and hopefully inspire you to pick up some paint, a keyword, some glue or a potato… and create!
1. Drip Painting
Anna on her blog Take the Side Street lets some paint drip down the canvas to create stripes. Sounds too easy, but art doesn’t need to be complex to be awesome!
2. Simple Painting Transformation
Katrina on her crafty blog Katrina’s Baguettes show how to transform an old painting (that she and her friend painted in college) into something completely new.
3. Fabric Art Wall Hanging
You can glue fabric to canvas the décor of your house. All People Quilt show you how it’s done.
4. Photo Collage
We love showing off our own canvas app, an easy way to create gorgeous photo collages. This butterfly is from our Silhouette Collection and is perfect for family photos or even photos of flowers from your own garden.
5. DIY Canvas Art Textured
Jessica from Happy Together has mixed some paints and modeling paste to create an interesting textured painting – and shows you how you can too!
6. Art Hearts

7. Calendar Art

8. Gold Chevron Paintings
Jess from Jess Lively used tape to create jagged line stencils to paint over in bronze. Stunning result.
9. Family Portrait
Laura from Corner House combines a big heart with big talent to create this piece – a tree branch and birds representing members of her family. She will keep adding more birds to the painting with every new addition to the family. 1,2,3 … Awwww. An idea this would complement one of our canvas family portraits very well – a great way to mix up your decor.
10. Sectioned Canvas Wall Art
Thao’s a photographer who’s printed one of her photos of flowers and divided it into nine small canvas prints. Not as crafty as this Adorkable Duo? Create your own 3×3 split canvas photo print online instead.
11. Concentric Circles Canvas Art
Kacey’s colourful circles are a delight! She was inspired by a similar painting by a Russian abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky to create this piece for her kitchen. Check out how she did it on her blog Stay At Home Artist.
12. Stripes, Stripes, Stripes
Michelle from 4 Men 1 Lady has applied tape and paint to create stripes to match the décor and colouring of her home. Better than a bought one!
13. Paper Pieced Flower Canvas Art
Sarah from Craft Warehouse has used scrapbook pages (I would also suggest spare wrapping paper from Christmas or birthdays) to cut out flower petal shapes for this piece.
14. Herringbone Wall Art
More scrapbook art (or Christmas/Birthday wrapping paper art) has been placed by Linda in a neat pattern to create this eye catching collage featured on Burlap & Blue.
15. Paper Scrap Wall Art
Patricia from A Little Hut has created some 3D wall art paper shapes with folds at the bottom so the shapes literally stick the canvas! I expect you need a lot of patience to finish off this one, but totally worth the effort!
16. Honeycomb Nursery Wall Canvas
Amy’s clever alphabet honeycomb piece with a bee replacing the letter B is perfect for any nursery, or even a childcare centre! Get a step by step guide at Positively Splendid.
17. DIY Canvas Art
At first glance, this looks giant black circles trying to get in through the window! But we can all relax because it’s Christy’s clever piece depicted on four canvases. She was keen to create a focal point in her living area to distract from the walls needing a new coat of paint. Missioned accomplished! Check it out at Beach Brights.
18. Cheap & Easy Canvas Art
Mindy of Finding Silver Linings has created something new something old and dusty. Simple and quick too!
19. Pyramid Painting
If you’re a fan of triangles I am, you’ll love spending half a day painting triangles on potatos and stamping them onto canvas Lola has done.
20. Circle Labels
It’s time to visit your favourite stationery goods store! Cortney from Just Kali Rae has used circle shaped labels to create this golden delight.
21. Abstract Groucho Marx
Kristin of Kristen F David Designs has swirled the paint brush around wonderfully on canvas to decorate her home with this abstract artwork she has called Groucho Marx. I have a feeling this is harder than it looks.
22. Children’s Handprint Art
We’re all familiar with handprint and footprint art, but check out these creative twists from Fab Art DIY. You can even scan it in and use it as part of a canvas photo collage.
23. DIY Canvas Art Brush
A quick dab of a brush can turn into some amazing patterns, as demonstrated by Emily. Her choice to use silver/grey paint has created a classy piece of art.
24. Pet Art Print
Cheryl of Everyday Dishes & DIY has cleverly made some stencils by cutting out the shape of a dog from a photo and creating a variety of patterned dog images. Love it, but think it’s too hard? Then you’ll love our DIY paw print. Create it online now!

DIY Projects for Baby Girl Nurseries
If you ask us, the springtime is the perfect time to start preparing a lovely little nursery space for a new baby girl.
That’s why we’ve felt so much nesting lately in preparation for our own bundle of joy! Of course, there are plenty of cute decorative things we could purchase in stores to make the place look as nice as possible before she arrives, but we find we always feel the most satisfied when we’ve made something ourselves. That’s why we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled so intently for DIY projects that will really suit a baby girl’s nursery.
Just in case you love the idea of making your very own DIY decor pieces for your new baby girl just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!
1. Wood mounted floral monogram
Are you a p art of the kind of outdoorsy family who always wants to bring little pieces of the natural world inside so you can feel at one with your environment and really appreciate the world around you? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at the way Southern Girl, City Mom created a simple but stunning monogram using a wooden base and fabric flowers for the initial.

4. DIY yarn and felt dream catchers
Perhaps you actually already have some little kids who are also eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby sister and you know they’d love nothing more than to get in on the crafting process in order to decorate the nursery and make Baby feel more welcome? Then we think you’ll get a kick the kid-friendly way that Petite Party Studio created some super fun looking and quite girly dream catchers using yarn and felt.
5. Pretty hanging paper mobile
If you ask us, one of the best parts of having a nursery is getting to choose which kind of absolutely stunning mobile you hang over the baby’s bed, since there are so many whimsical, cheerful, and beautiful looking kinds! We’ve been feeling pretty enthusiastic about paper crafts lately elsewhere in our lives, so we’re sure it only makes sense that we’ve be huge fans of the way The Crafty Blog Stalker made a beautiful hanging paper mobile using strips of differently coloured and patterned paper.

In that case, we’ve definitely suggest taking a look at how Catch My Party made this version by getting creative with their colourful yarn wrapping techniques.
