5 DIY Valentine’s Day Canvases

Hi friends! Happy Monday! So today I have a beautiful Pinterest round-up of some Valentine’s Day themed DIY canvases.  The following projects are fairly simple to do with limited materials, but look amazing! Any one of these would be the perfect addition to your home for some Valentine’s pizzazz. So please enjoy, and as always you can click on the picture to be taken to the original source where you will find all the instructions 🙂

LOVE Kid’s Art Canvas

I love the idea of getting kids into the art creation process.  By taping off the word of your choice (“love” in this case) you can then let your kids run wild with the paint.  Let them get it all over the canvas, then simply peel off your tape, and you have a pretty work of art you made together!

You could paint the canvas first to make your exposed word any colour you like!

Glitter LOVE Canvas Art

Take that same idea, but instead of taping a canvas off, add glittered wooden letter over top of a painted canvas! I love the colour combination of the gold glitter and the black and white stripes, but navy and white stripes would look awesome too! Or you could tape off a zigzag chevron pattern instead of straight stripes. Or, just like the above idea, let your kids have at it and make their own background!

A touch of glitter is ALWAYS a good idea 🙂

Key To My Heart Canvas

This found object canvas is so beautiful! I love those big skeleton keys you can buy at craft stores, and creating a heart canvas as the background for it is such a lovely idea.  It also elevates the simple heart shape painting, giving it a bit more elegance instead of a simple image. This one is done on wood, but a fabric canvas would work just as well.

The rustic painting is perfect for the vintage-looking key!

Twig Heart Canvas

Another found object idea, twigs cut at various lengths to make a heart shape is such a cute idea! This canvas looks great with a simple flat colour background, letting the twigs take the spotlight.  If you wanted, you could spray paint the twigs white or any other colour you want as well, though I personally like the rustic look of the wood.

A simple background doesn’t take away from the twigs as the focus.

Mixed Media Button Canvas

And finally, my personal favourite of this collection! This mixed media button heart canvas is abslutely gorgeous! I’ve seen other button heart canvases on pinterest, but they were all very simple with a heart in the center of a canvas made out of buttons.  This piece is so much more with all the different buttons and colours, plus the added script and collage elements.  It really is a work of art instead of a simple seasonal house decoration.

This would make an amazing photo book cover, or even as artwork to keep up all year round!

So there you have it, guys! Five canvases that hopefully inspire you to create your own valentine work of art! I’m going to be working on my own little heart artwork for this year, so I’m hoping you’re looking forward to my own interpretation of these ideas! Thanks for stopping by!

Till next time, keep creating!
