It’s time for another Monthly DIY Challenge! This month our theme was canvas, which is pretty broad. So many possibilities but I knew I wanted to make some sort of piece of artwork. And it had to be easy. So I came up with this Floral Canvas Art 🙂

The Monthly DIY Challenge

I’m usually not a fan of fake flowers and think they look super tacky. But if you find the right ones, I think they can look pretty and almost real. Plus they last forever, so there’s that. I love having fresh flowers in the house, but of course they don’t last. If I had lots of $$ that would be one thing I would spend it on; always having fresh flowers around 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need:
Canvas
Bunch of fake flowers

Canvas Art Supplies

I found these super cute square canvases at Michael’s that come with a wooden frame. Definitely cooler than the regular ones.

First up, grab some scissors or something sharp and poke a hole in the middle of your canvas.

Cut hole for flowers

Stick your flowers through the hole and adjust them until they look the way you want them. They’ll need some support to keep them in place so I grabbed some string and tied a knot around them from the back.

Tie and Staple string

Pull the string tight in opposite directions and use a staple gun to staple the string onto the wooden frame. This will keep your flowers in place.

For the single flower canvas, I poked a small hole again and just used a little dab of glue to hold it in place.

Pretty Floral Canvas

And voila. Cute little Floral Canvases that will last all year long 🙂

    I really like these, Bre! The 3D effect is really cool and I had no clue you could buy a canvas with a frame!

    I love the 3D element of these! Such simple and beautiful pieces that provide maximum impact! I’d love to put these in a nursery 🙂 And you know faux flowers are my best friend since I can’t kill them 😉
