Canvas wall art

I embarked on two projects this weekend, but they ended up being one!

Project 1.

A 1mx1.5m canvas painted in a bright ‘sprig green’ to add some colour to our back room which has cream walls and dark furniture.

Project 2.

Pictures from a free Notebook Magazine calendar glued onto 50cmx70cm canvases.

Project Combine:

I wasn’t happy with the canvas on it’s own once we hung it. It looked a bit too out of place. The flower canvases looked ok for what they were but I wasn’t sure where to actually hang them. Then the lightbulb moment came! Perhaps I could attach the flower canvases to the green canvas in a way that if it looks bad I can still unattach them…. a few lengths of ribbon, my trusty staple gun and some more paint and we have:

A little wonky, but I’m so happy with it! The wall looks much less drab and the whole project was under $50. Yay!
