Hello. Today I am going to show you a simple Valentine canvas tutorial. This project takes about 1 and a half hours (with 3 littles), uses up fabric scraps, and costs around $5. Easy, cheap, adorable!
I will start by saying this would be really easy with paper and a punch, but I didn't have either. Plus I really like my fabric scrap selection.
All you need is a 16 x 20 canvas. I got mine from Walmart, 2 pack for $10. You could probably do better at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. You will need scraps, craft paint, mod podge and a brush.
I didn't include a template, but my heart is around 3" high, and 3" wide. I just piled a bunch of scraps together and cut around my template. I probably did to many scraps, because I had to clean the edges up a bit. But I didn't care if the hearts were not all the exact same size. They appear to be, that's all that mattered to me.
First paint your canvas. I did more of a wash. Equal parts water and paint. I spread it around with a rag. After it is dry, lay your hearts in place.
One row at a time, lift the hearts, spread mod podge, place hearts back and "glue" them down. Push tight if you didn't iron first (like me) Then once they are in place and look nice, spread mod podge on top.
Do this to all the rows. Push out any air bubbles (easy do do with fabric) Make sure your edges don't lift either.
Let it dry and hang or prop wherever you like!
Finished and cute! Hope you like!
