Summer Clearance Kids' Canvas Art Kits Repurposed As Fall Wall Signs


 While searching the clearance bins at Joann Fabrics on a recent shopping trip, I purchased three "Little Makers Summer" Canvas Painting Kits at 75% off or about $2 each.

The little canvases are 8" x 8" with paint and a paint brush provided.  I did not use the little paints on this project. (but I may use them on a later project)


First, I brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in CAVIAR.

I also found two little fall 6" x 6" paper stencil packs at Joann's.  They were $5.99 a piece, (but I used a coupon to get them at a lower price).


These are paper stencils, so handle with care.

I picked three of the six little stencils for my black canvases.

I taped them onto the canvases for stencil using blue painter's tape.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain for the lettering and Acrylic Craft Paint in Terracotta  for the pumpkins.

I know some people use a liner brush to close the stencil bridges.  I prefer to use small bits of blue painter's tape to close the opening for stenciling with a fine brush.  

These cheaper stencils have too many annoying stencil bridges in too many places.  (Just fill them in!)

Since I pounce on the stencils, I am able to pounce the bridge closed with this method.

I lightly distressed the stenciling and the canvases with 220 grit sandpaper.

I applied a light coat of Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear with an INTEX SUPPLY Fiber Rag.

Super corny saying, but cute!
