It’s really not that hard to make your own DIY canvas art project, even if you have never done anything like it before. It does require patience and a bit of trial and error to find what works for you. This article will help show us what we need to know to get started on our own personal canvas art project.

Choose A Canvas Art Project That We Want To Create

The first thing we need to do is choose a canvas art project that we want to create. There are literally thousands of different types of paintings and prints that you can choose from. This will limit our choices, but at the same time, it also makes it easier to find a project that is suited to our style. Most people don’t start out painting with a plan and then later decide what type of canvas painting they would like to do.

Once you’ve decided what you want to do, you can then look for ideas online. There are loads of blogs and websites dedicated to DIY canvas art and painting. Take the time to search through them for inspiration. Don’t be afraid to take some pictures of pieces that you like and that give you an idea of how you want to proceed.

Another way to get some easy diy canvas art ideas is to go to flea markets and swap meets. At these events you’ll have the chance to talk to local people about their favorite places where they get their wall art pieces. If you live in a city, then it might be possible to go to one of the local galleries and speak with the gallery director or manager about buying some canvas pieces for your home or office. At these events you’ll also be able to talk to people about what kind of canvas wall art pieces they have that they would be willing to sell for a low price.

Other Ways To Find Easy Diy Canvas Art Projects

There are two other ways to find easy DIY canvas art projects. The first is to buy a large piece of washi tape and draw on all of the walls of your room in a stencil. Cut out various shapes from the washi tape and lay them out over your sketch. When you’re satisfied with your work, simply remove the washi tape and use the piece of tape to stick up your stencil on the wall.

Another way to get a DIY canvas art project started is to purchase a heavy weight piece of gallery wrapping paper and roll it up into a long piece. You will need to cut out various shapes from this piece of canvas art, and then staple them onto the center of the rolled up canvas. This gives a much more professional looking piece of art that you can then add paint to.

A third DIY canvas art idea is to make your own coloring pages. You can make them pretty easily with just a few pieces of card stock. All you have to do is prepare some blank canvas and let dry between colors. Then once your color has dried to a matte finish, you can color in your lines and accents with your paints.

These are three different DIY canvas wall art project ideas to get you started. They don’t require any special tools, materials or experience to create. If you’re interested in trying to find a fun way to add some personality to your home, these are a great place to start.


For another DIY canvas art project, you will need either a large piece of drywall mud, or a large piece of fabric. Cut out the design or pattern of your choice onto the front of the fabric, and then cut strips of your fabric where you want to fit the stencils. Place the stencil on the front of the drywall mud, and then cut strips of your fabric where you want to line up your stencil on the walls. Then, attach the fabric to the drywall, and you have a personalized wall decor just in time for the holiday season!
