15 Minute Dollar Store Decal Canvas Art Upcycle


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Are you ready for the latest 15 minute fix? I'm sure you won't be surprised that today's simple project pairs two of my favorites: a thrift store reject and a dollar store decal....

Y'all know I love me some dollar store crafts and the possibilities are endless with these thrifty wall decals. I used one to create this charming Home Sweet Home sign...

...and another to upcycle a vintage plate.

It makes my day when I receive a comment from a reader who was inspired to try a new project after reading my blog. Likewise, I want to give a shout out to Katrin from Kreativ K as it was her lovely reversed canvas art that inspired me to hunt the thrift stores until I found a canvas for my own version. It took awhile but I finally found one for $1 and thanks to Katrin, I saw potential under the layers of paint!

Ready to make one? You'll need a canvas that's in good condition--used is fine, but be sure to check the view from the back. Select a decal that will fit inside nicely.

If desired, paint the wood frame before arranging the decal. This step is optional if you prefer the natural wood. Since I planned to hang mine on my gallery wall, I gave it a sheer coat of white to match the existing upcycled frames.

Once the paint dries, carefully remove the decal and apply it to the canvas.

  3. I love this....a frame in a frame is always such a fun display. Love your wall. Is there a trick to those decals? All of the ones I put on my painted wood boards buckled and peeled :-(
