Good evening, everyone! I hope you are all having a great night! I have a quick, easy and inexpensive project to share with you tonight!
It all started with this…
You might be wondering, “what exactly am I looking at?”. Well I will tell you… that is a tiny little tear in a canvas. I don’t know how it happened, but I bought a 5 pack of 16″ x 20″ canvases from Michael’s and by the time I got around to opening them, one of the canvases in the middle of the pack had this tear. Since it was in the middle, I knew there was no way that I could have done it, so I was kind of mad, but I also HATE returning things, so … oh, well. I was going to just toss it, but thankfully my smarts kicked in. (Come on, Holly — get it together!) First rule in DIY — Never, ever just toss something out with out thinking about it. You never know when you could use it!
Tonight, I finally found a use for this canvas!
I had this pillowcase that I had picked up from the dollar store…yes, the dollar store. I have never used it. I bought it simply because I loved the design on it, and I knew that one day I could do a DIY with it! We won’t mention that it took me over six months to find a way to use this pillowcase (oops). Can I just say that the dollar store has seriously stepped up their game!
This project is so easy, and it took me about 20 minutes to make this! 20 minutes and I know have a beautiful piece of art.
Give this video a watch to see how I did it, and feel free to share this video with all your DIY lovin’ friends.
I did add a little extra piece to my art, though. I cut out a pretty quote with my Cricut cutting machine on some heat transfer vinyl and then used my press to seal it on. If you don’t have these pieces of equipment available to you. You could always use a stencil and some fabric paint, or see what other creative ideas you can come up with. Share your ideas with me. I would love to hear them!
Let me know what you think of this project! Give this a like and share with your family and friends!
Have a good night everybody! I am off to bed! 🙂
