DIY Christmas canvas art!

I love decorating for the holidays, so much so that I put my tree up early November! We don’t have Thanksgiving at our house so I think I can get away with it 😉 My taste is all over the place and I love making homemade decor to tie everything together!

I got the idea for this craft from a daily deal site.  I couldn’t fathom paying $30-$50 for a single canvas so I thought I would try and make something similar only it would be more my style (and more in my budget).

Christmas canvas supplies:

  • any size framed canvas, I used 5×7’s (You can find these at Amazon, Walmart, art supply stores, etc)
  • paint colors of your choice
  • brushes
  • white paint pen

All you need to do is completely paint over your white canvas. I did two coats but I’m not sure that was completely necessary! Once it’s dry, take your paint pen and write your favorite words that remind you of the holiday season! I did four: Love, Joy, Peace, and Bah Humbug!  I started on the side of the canvas just to give it a cohesive look from all angles! It was fun and easy to do and added a little personal touch to our Christmas decor throughout the house!
