Here’s another Pinterest find for wall art that should be fairly easy, inexpensive, and fun to make yourself!
I followed these directions from the Nomadic Decorator. I used 6 canvases out of a 7 pack of 12″ x 12″ canvases from Michaels instead of 9 wood panels.
I’ve never been a scrapbooker, so the hardest part for me was finding 6 scrapbook paper pages that I thought coordinated well together. I was not finding quite what I wanted with the selection at my local Michaels or at Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts.
Believe it or not, I ended up buying a 50-page bundle of “Grateful Harvest” Colorbok Designer Paper at Walmart for about $5. I used it for this project and pinned some extra pages on my bulletin board at work for a fun background (below).
For the canvas project, it was as simple as
- Paint the canvas edges black.
- Let dry.
- Use Mod Podge to glue the scrapbook pages down. Smooth out the paper as you go with a credit card or flat edge.
- Let dry.
- Hang up.
The Nomadic Decorator did a great job writing instructions and adding tips on avoiding wrinkles (use thicker paper, and try different adhesives). I did need to smooth out the paper for several minutes as it dried, but the end result has few wrinkles.
