What all you can do with a Blank Canvas!

By Colorelaxation November 25, 2019

Let’s say you need artwork in your home or studio. Shopping for art is hard. It either looks like something in a boring hotel or it looks like something you could make and you’re not gonna spend that kind of money on something you could make!

So, why don’t you? Make it! You have the power and skills to create a lot of easy, abstract and fun artwork for all kinds of home decor. All you need is a blank canvas and some supplies.

A blank canvas holds promise and possibility. You can create so many things with it, like a thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or a favorite teacher. Or it can become a fun decor piece for Easter {or when you feature a character like Olaf from Frozen} for a child’s room. Small canvases can become place cards for holiday entertaining. And of course a blank canvas can also be made into art!

Here are some projects for a blank canvas. Try one out, it’ll be the colors you want, the size you want – and you’ll be proud to tell people you made it when they ask (and they will).

Crayon Art

Crayon Art

Create a beautiful and colorful painting with natural wax crayons by melting them. Prepare your materials; a canvas board and at least 24 crayons. You will also need a hot glue gun and a hot hairdryer. Put your crayons in the color order you want. Glue your crayons on. Space them out 1/4 of an inch. Melt to your desire and enjoy it! This out of the blue idea will highlight your wall and beautify the décor.

Wrap up the Canvas

Wrapping fabric around a canvas is a great way to see your favorite fabric every day. Add a pocket and some twine and you have a pretty place to save photos, ephemera, and important notes.

Diamond Paint on Canvas

Drip Art on Canvas

Dripping paint on a canvas is a tried and true art project for kids, but it still looks cool. Add some metallic paints to it to give it a grown-up fancy look. Just hold canvas up over a container to catch the drippings and drip the colors you want from the top.

Use Masking tapes on Canvas

This super easy project uses framers tape and paint. Put framers tape in a design on blank canvas and paint over and then take off for clean white lines. Or paint the background one or more colors (how about metallic). Let dry completely and add framers tape to where you want, paint over that and then remove tape carefully when dry.

Creating a Collage on Canvas
