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…
I told you it was cute!
Here I have the canvas resting on the frame, but this can easily be hung on the wall.
I really love how crisp the graphic is…
You know we love cotton bolls…
I hope that I inspired you today to create something for your home. It doesn’t need to cost a lot of money to be cute, charming, pretty, etc. to be fabulous! You can do it!
