I have noticed pops of gold being used in home decor. I have recently seen some beautiful, classic (expensive!) gold-toned Valentine’s day items. So, I did what any Pinterest-loving-DIYer would do- I created my own canvas DIY!
Supplies needed to make your own canvas DIY set:
- 12×12 Bulk Stretched Canvas Value Pack
- Corrugated Love Pop-Art
- Corrugated Heart Cutouts (2)
- Large Heart Plaque
- 8inch Paper Mache Letter (choose your monogram letter)
- 3.25 inch Wood Clothes Pins
- 12 inch White Paper Doilies
- Gold Eye Hooks
- White Satin Cord
- Hot Temp Glue Gun
- Gold Spray Paint
Using gold spray paint, paint four (4) of the corrugated hearts, the large wooden heart, the corrugated “Love” word art, your paper mache monogram letter, and three (3) wooden clothes pins. Set aside to dry.
Attach screw eyes to the wooden frame of the canvas to string the cords.
Canvas number two: adhere the painted large heart to the center of the canvas with hot glue.
Moving on to canvas number three. I added white 12″ doilies to the next two canvases. Doilies add such fun, white-on-white texture to this project, and really remind me of Valentine’s Day.
Adhere a doily to the middle of the next two canvases using hot glue.
