Thrifty Thursday: Canvas Cut-Out Art!

Happy Thursday Everyone! I am so excited to share this thrifty artwork with you today! Okay, I originally found this idea from pinterest…where else?  ;)
The idea of this project is basically to cut out any design you’d like, out of the back of a blank canvas, creating a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. The possibilities are truly endless! That’s what makes it so fun, and it gives you a chance to let your creative juices flow.
Let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
-Blank canvas (or 2..3.. or 4..) of any size
-Exacto knife
-Piece of paper
-Sharpie/Pencil
-Spray Paint/Acrylic Paint
-Scrapbook Paper
-Staple Gun
1. Okay this part can be fast and easy, OR a bit more tedious. The way I did it, was tedious. Haha. Only because I’m a cheapo! I used a piece of printer paper and held it up to my computer screen and traced a design that I found online. Then using a sharpie a traced over that.

2. Then holding my piece of paper and my canvas up to my computer screen I traced the design onto the back side of my canvas. OR just print it out.
3. After you have the design on the back of your canvas get your exacto knife and  start cutting! Okay, I just have to say, I cut all three of my canvases using a utility knife! Then my husband walks in and goes, “you know we have an exacto knife, right?” Wrong. I didn’t know that! Haha, anyway he found it for me, guess I’ll get to use that next time.

Okay, see the canvas in the middle? I totally botched the design that I was going to do on it, so I just made it in to a rectangular frame.
4. Now you can spray paint your canvas.

5. Once that’s dry pick out some scrapbook paper and staple it to the back of the canvas. OR leave it blank and use the wall as the background color.

That’s it! The hardest part is cutting out your design, especially if you have an intricate one. None the less, it’s a pretty easy project that is lots of fun J

I am not sure where I am going to hang these bad boys yet, perhaps in the laundry room. Which I am redoing by the way, look for that in an upcoming post.
