Add some pretty botanicals to your decor with this easy project. Choose colors that you love or use my suggestions, then add simple stenciled designs for a great look! I’ll show you how you can easily create this look in less than an hour.
This is a great way to add a little color to your mantle or a shelf, or that awkward empty spot on your wall that’s too small for anything else.
First, I started with some inexpensive canvases. Mine are 4″ x 5″, which were the perfect size for the stencil that I used.
And, speaking of stencils, this is the one that I used. I bought both the stencil and the canvases from Michaels. The stencil is called Botanical Garden from Patio Paint and they are stick-on and reusable.
Simply paint each canvas in your desired colors. I used Craft Smart paint, also available at Michaels (actually, ONLY available at Michaels!) in Sage Green, Island Blue, Mustard Yellow and Golden Brown.
For the stencil color, I used Craft Smart Vanilla. Easy peasy!
Now you should go make some. :)
I originally made these canvases for Michael’s Craft Stores via DecoArt. You can see the project on Michael’s here.
