In my last post, I shared with you how I've been adding Spring Decor on a Budget. If you missed the post and would love to catch up, click on the link below.
Today I'd like to share with you some more of my decor.
I made this canvas art myself using some very inexpensive items.
Here's what I used...
1. A canvas picture from the dollar store
2. Napkins from the Marshall's store
3. Mod Podge
4. Gel glaze
5. White paint
I painted the canvas white first one direction, and then the opposite direction after the first coat dried to give it a canvas-like texture.
After the painted dried completely, I gave the entire surface a coat of glaze. You can see how it adds texture.
I then took one of the napkins
and separated the layers....leaving only the outside layer.
The next step was to apply Mod Podge to the canvas.
I then applied the napkin to the canvas, (I left a few wrinkles in the napkin to give it a more aged look) allowing it to dry completely. After it was dry, I then applied 2 more coats of mod podge, brushing in different directions to give a canvas like look.
After the final coat of mod podge was dry,
I applied another layer of glaze giving it an aged look.
Here it is sitting next to the birdcage I made over.
In the photo it looks a little yellow... but it isn't. It looks aged but not yellow.
Total cost for this dollar store artwork makeover ~ $1.20
not including the things I already had in the house.
I hope this inspires you to decorate for spring while staying a budget.
