DIY Quote on Canvas

I like to be crafty, but I’m not very skilled in the art department– straight lines and symmetry will never be my friends. In high school IB art I steered clear of any drawing or painting that required any degree of realism. Let me tell you, this words on canvas DIY is the perfect craft for the uncrafty.

Chevron Wall Art


  • Canvas – I recommend buying at Michaels, Hobby Lobby or Jo-Ann when they have 50% off canvas sales. I grabbed these in a 10-pack, and they came to about $2 per square.
  • Acrylic paint – Craft Smart acrylic paint at Michaels is $0.69, or $0.59 when you buy 4 or more. I used a metallic gold, red, blue and yellow.
  • Letter stickers – I found these on the scrapbooking aisle.
  • Paint brushes
  • Hairdryer (optional)

Quotes on Canvas DIY

How To

  1. Paint the canvas with a solid coat of paint. Let dry completely.
  2. Apply letter stickers.
  3. Paint the canvas with a pattern of your choice. To get the chevron/ikat inspired pattern, first paint a zig zag going across the canvas. Move the brush and and down vertically to get the ikat effect. Don’t forget to paint the edges of the canvas. Let dry completely.
  4. Remove stickers.
