Cut Canvas!!


Recently I learnt, Canvas is just not for painting, you can cut a pattern and make a stunning wall art.

After seeing couple of pins on cut canvas @ Pinterest I decided to try my hand at making a simple art. Though it is not perfect I am pretty happy for the attempt 🙂


After some internet search, saw some awesome DIY projects on Nine Red blog page. It is one amazing place where you find a lot of  inspiring projects that you can’t wait to make 🙂 And the best part is, the tutorial is detailed and easy to follow.

Since, this is my first one, I used an old canvas. As mentioned in the tutorial, I applied the glue and water mixture and let it dry overnight.

I picked a simple silhouette as pattern and traced it on the backside. Using Xacto knife I have carefully cut the pattern. It took a while but give enough time and have patience and you will be able to complete it easily.

Finally, to hide the old canvas painting, I used silver spray paint 🙂


Wait for more of these projects for Halloween and Christmas.

I hope you enjoyed and Happy Monday!!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
