DIY Botanical Dollar Tree Reverse Canvas Decor Transfer Wall Art

January 23, 2024

I purchased two 6" x 8" and one 8" x 10" art canvases at our local Dollar Tree.

I used them to create easy botanical wall art!

First I used a razorblade cutter to cut the canvas off of the wooden frame. I then pulled out the staples. (If you can't get them out, it won't matter).

I lightly stained the frames with Weathered Wood Accelerator. I have used this product many times before and love it! I apply it with a small foam brush. 

Then I cut the canvas along the fold lines with a scissors.

Next I applied Aleene's Tacky Glue to the back side of the frame.

I glued the canvas on the frame, making sure that the white side was up. (The white side will be the back!)

The white side has been primed or base coated for art projects. I wanted the natural, uncoated canvas side as the background of my project.

I purchased Redesign with Prima Botanical Snippets transfers on Etsy a while ago.  It is a middy size transfer and perfect for these frames.

I chose three snippets and cut them out of the transfer sheet.

I centered the snippet on the canvas, removed the white paper backing, and rubbed it down with the rectangular stick enclosed with the transfer packet.  

When the transfer was stuck down, I slowly and gently pulled up the clear plastic top sheet to see if any areas needed additional rubbing.  Once the clear top sheet is removed, it would be much more difficult to line it up and rub it down.

I repeated the procedure on the other two snippet canvases, and added sawtooth hangers to the top, back of the frames.

I love plants inside and out!

These are faux plants but I have plenty of real plants in the house. Most are much bigger than these.

I still have several botanical snippets left for yet another project, even though I have used them now on two projects.

Several of my snippets were used in my Propagation Station With Bottles, Jars & Decor Transfers upcycle.

And also on this Boho Botanical Box Makeover.

It looks great open or closed.

  2. What a creative way to use up the canvas and the frames into something entirely different!
