DIY Easy Canvas Painting Wall Decor Tutorial

DIY Canvas Painting Wall Decor art, inspired by artist Nancy Ramirez. The colors are painted on first, then the herringbone pattern is marked off with painter’s tape before the whole thing gets a coat of white.

You’ll need:

  • A canvas, in any size you choose
  • Painter’s tape
  • Acrylic paints in your preferred colors, plus one bottle of white paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • A disposable plate, wax paper, or scrap cardboard to use as a palette
  • Paper towels or a drop cloth to cover your work area

Assemble your paints and squeeze a quarter-size amount of each color onto your palette. And now, for the part where you get to go wild: Create the abstract painting of your choice. You can work with one color at a time, or alternate between hues as you work across the canvas.

To incorporate all of our colors, we used one at a time, rinsing our brush between each and blending until we covered the canvas. Experiment with long streaks versus wide splashes of color until you find a look you love.

Once you’ve covered the canvas, let it dry for a few minutes. (If you’re impatient, you can set it in front of a fan or blast with a hair dryer on the cool setting.) We used a second, slightly smaller paintbrush to apply a second layer of color, making sure the canvas was completely covered and the colors were blended well. (A little messiness is okay here!) Let the canvas dry completely.

Taping is the trickiest part of this project — but once you get the hang of your pattern, it gets easier. Cut roughly same-sized strips of painter’s tape and apply them to one side of the canvas in a staggered pattern. Leave an even amount of space between each strip to keep your pattern consistent.

Continue across the canvas, creating a design that looks like rows of stacked arrows. (Tip: Don’t worry if your tape strips aren’t lining up — you can easily lift up the end of a strip and cut it to fit with scissors.)

For our design, we chose to cover the entire canvas in a consistent chevron pattern. But, you can get more creative and remove random pieces of tape across the canvas to create a more abstract feel. Just remember that any areas not covered with tape will end up white.

First, examine your tape strips to make sure the edges are completely sealed along the canvas. Then, use your paintbrush to cover the canvas in white paint, being careful not to disturb the tape strips in the process.

Be sure to cover the canvas completely — we applied two coats for good measure. Once you’ve finished painting, let the canvas dry. Be patient with this step, since removing the tape before the paint is fully dry could mess up your design.

Starting at the sides of the canvas, carefully remove the strips of tape to reveal your painting underneath.

DIY: How to make Movie Clapper

This tutorial shows how to make a movie clapper from scratch. It was used for a special events and it was really simple to make (even if it took a while to get to the finished). Made from wood and chalkboard paint.

movieclapper7

Required Material:

  • 30x25cm / 11.8×9.8inch piece of wood
  • 5x25cm / 2×9.8inch piece of wood
  • Hand saw
  • 2 brass plates to make the hinge
  • Electric drill
  • Bolts and nuts
  • Black chalkboard paint
  • White paint
  • Sandpaper, paintbrushes, masking tape

movieclapper1

First, saw a triangle on the top left of the bigger piece of wood. If you don’t do this, it won’t move.

movieclapper2

Then, mark the places that you’ll need to open holes.

movieclapper3

Drill all the holes and paint everything with the black chalkboard paint. I used three coats to make it extra strong and pretty.

When it’s completely dry, take care of the hinge, using the nuts and bolts. I chose to paint the hinge black, thought it looked better.

Now it’s time to mark the places to paint white. Draw a line 5cm from the top of the main part. On that line, draw small marks spaced 3cm apart. Do the same thing on the top part of the clapper. Draw diagonal lines, making the pattern shown below.

movieclapper4

Carefully paint the white pattern. I went nuts and did it without masking tape and it turned out fine but it could have been a huge mess. I used three coats of white to achieve that look.

movieclapper8

After it is all completely dry, draw a line – and this is where you can be the most creative – dividing the clapper in as many parts as you want. I drew mine at about half the height and then the smaller line, at half the length.

movieclapper5

But it turned out really cool! Right?

movieclapper6

I loved making this. It was actually a lot simpler to make than I thought but it took so long! To paint and let dry each and every coat took about 4-5 days… but it turned out really cool and that was what I was hoping for! And it is a fully working clapper. It was used in the event and it was a success!
