Paint a simple design on expensive art canvas for a fun and frugal gift.
Today’s DIY is a little bit of a stretch for me. I am not an artist.
But, here’s the back story. Hubs and I went out to dinner last week and I saw this painting display  at the restaurant. I liked the muted tones, the whimsical feel, and the fact that it didn’t look perfect. Someone on instagram suggested that I try painting something myself.
So, I did.
I decided to paint simple lettered wall art. Mine is similar in nature to one my sister made  earlier in the year.
Only Janel’s Word Art  looks more pro than mine.
Freehand or not, the painted canvas makes a great statement on the wall and a perfect gift under the tree.
Either style you choose, the basic supplies will be the same:
The basic method for the freehand version is simple.
Obviously, your mileage may vary, depending on your artistic ability. If all else fails, just say your kid made it.
That’s what I’m gonna do.
