I have a quick, easy, and eye-catching little project to share for the week.
All you need is a basic white canvas, old doilies or lace, and a can of spray paint.
I did not document the process portion of these with pictures, but it’s fairly easy to explain.
If you want one of the colors in your artwork to be white, just let your canvas alone as a base.
However, if you want a different color as a base color, paint over the entire canvas with that hue and allow to dry.
Then you can lay out old lace doilies in a design that appeals to you and make sure they are lying flat on the canvas ( no curled edges).
Take a can of spray paint in a contrasting color (in this case, navy blue) and spray on a nice layer of paint.
If you need to, allow that to dry without removing doilies and spray on another layer to get a saturated color.
Once everything is dry, pull off the doilies and admire your new artwork!
As you can see, I made a couple of these and placed them above the headboard of my bed. Actually, I may make another just because I think a trio would look better.
This is a semi-cheap project to make because plain white canvases can be purchased relatively inexpensively at Wal Mart or a craft store. Old doilies or lace can be scooped up at thrift shops or even yard sales. They can also be reused for this type of project.
Laying a piece of old lace over the entire canvas makes for a neat look too.
I used spray paint because it goes in all those little holes better than a brush-on paint ever would.
Love my new wall art!
