Hey y’all! This Dollar Tree floral print was pretty enough just the way it was, but I wanted to jazz her up just a little bit!
Here are some of the supplies I used. Follow along for the rest!
Dollar Tree: The 8 X 8 canvas print (pictured above), an 8 X 10 blank canvas
Lowes (or Home Depot) wood shims
Hobby Lobby: burlap and lace ribbon
Lizzy and Erin: Water Girl continuous spray bottle
Walmart: Waverly antique stain
Debi’s Design Diary DIY paint: White Swan
Stash: ribbon, raffia, gray and white bead garland.
Quick Beader, sanding sponges and twine. (This is an Amazon affiliate link and I may receive a small compensation for items purchased from this link.)
Let’s start with those shims, y’all!
I used the blank canvas as a surface for my shims. The shims are wide on one end and narrow on the other, so I flip-flop them to create texture.
I hot glued them to the canvas.
Then I spritzed them with water using my Water Girl continuous spray bottle. Next was a coat of Waverly Antique Wax.
Just brush it on, and spritz more water if needed.
Once I had finished painting the stain, I decided it really needed to be dry brushed with White Swan.
Once dry, I sanded it down just a little.
TIP: You don’t need to dry brush the entire surface, just the edges. The artwork will cover the center.
I then hot glued the artwork to the surface. Once adhered, I came back in with the hot glue and reinforced the edges where the artwork met the surface.
I made a simple bow by layering ribbon and raffia, alternating in an “X” pattern, then tying with some twine.
I strung an even number of beads together on twine for my hanger. My method for securing them is often to glue the twine to the back of the surface, then glue craft sticks over the twine.
Here’s our finished craft!
