Rad DIY Canvas Wall Art Craft for Tweens

After redecorating my room recently, I was left with some blank canvases. As the crafter I am, I kept these knowing I could easily up-cycle them. And look what came out of it! This would so totally be a great birthday present or cute piece of art to hang on a bare wall. enlightened

You will need:

A small blank canvas



Black fine liner

Paint (I chose to use a variety of colours and make an ombre sunset look)

Flat letter stickers



Paint cloth (to wipe your brush on - an old flannel will do)

A couple of sheets of an old newspaper to stop from painting the table

1. Rule a few light pencil lines. This is where you’re going to stick your letters and ruling the lines will also make sure you put them on straight!

2. Stick on your stickers spelling out a certain phrase (I used ‘Weird is Rad’)

3. Start painting and gradually mix and blend your paint so you can’t distinguish any lines of colour. (Remember to paint over the letters!)

4. Leave the paint to dry.

5. Peel off your letters, revealing the untouched white. Note your letters won’t be perfectly white as some of the paint may have gotten under your letters. Just remember that imperfection is perfection and weird is rad!
