DIY Farmhouse Canvas Art

Hey y’all…I sincerely hope that you aren’t tired of quick and inexpensive artwork projects, because today I have a doozie for you. I think it is super cute and it just might be my new fave! It took about 2 minutes to create and cost less that $10!!! Are you ready to get started?

It all began with this adorable farmhouse flour sack kitchen towel. I mean really – how could I pass this cutie up? And for just $3.99 at Target I thought it was a great deal!

Whenever I see cute towels like this I pick them up. Typically I use them for pillows like my Queen Mum cover for my desk area.

On my way home from the store, I remembered that I had this artist canvas at home. I purchased it awhile back from Hobby Lobby and it was 50% off of this price. So that makes this nice-sized canvas just $4.50. Did you know that Hobby Lobby runs their discounts on a weekly rotation basis? Get familiar with your store and your prices. Typically twice a month these canvases are discounted. Just for FYI purposes I plan to head to Hobby Lobby before Sunday. They are offering the 16×20 canvases in a 2-pack for just $7.99. I have an idea to use them for at Christmas. Just thought you would want to know – that is a fantastic deal and NO – I don’t work for them LOL. I just get excited with a great deal and want you to be excited too!

I wanted to use my new farmhouse towel as artwork. I change out my art seasonally or as my mood sees fit, so that is often. I never spend a lot of money for art or these projects so I never feel guilty about changing it out.

Okay – back to the directions. Don’t blink because you will miss the whole thing. I laid out the towel and placed the canvas on top. I trimmed the edges being very careful not to cut the design.

I then simply used my hot glue gun. I folded under each side one at a time and glued the cloth into place. I started at the bottom and then pulled the cloth taut and glued the top, following with each side.

And here it is…

    What a great idea! I’ve been looking for a way to hang and display a world map…besides just putting it in a frame. I think that I’m going to combine this idea and elements of your ‘picture printed on tissue paper’ instructions to hang the map on a canvas. Thanks for the inspiration! Bambi
