Not everyone is born with the artistic gene, but most people know what they like when it comes to choosing decor for their living space. Great art pieces can be costly, but if you can’t afford to buy the art you love, make it yourself. DIY canvas paintings are the perfect solution for adding color, texture, and personality to your home. Your local craft store has everything you need. Pull together some acrylic paints, find a canvas that fits the space and you’ll be ready to go.



Wise, quirky or funny, quotes can be the perfect subject for your DIY canvas painting. Whether it’s a single word, your favorite excerpt from a book, a popular line from a movie or song, or a witty quip from a historical figure, the possibilities are endless. Freehand the letters with acrylic paint pens or use a stencil for the lettering. Line the wording vertically along one side or straight down the middle. Choose different colors for each letter or use a monochrome effect. There’s no wrong way to do it.
