DIY Canvas Art: The Best Shower Curtains For Art


Que the budget savvy art work!

I know usually budget & art do not normally go together, especially when it’s large artwork.

But when I was creating the design board for the dining room makeover I knew I wanted a large canvas art piece to hang over the buffet table.

I had my heart set on something like this, but that price tag was a little out of the budget for the dining room makeover. So I had to improvise & come up with a little DIY magic.

~SOME AFFILIATE LINKS MAY BE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, TAKE A PEEK AT OUR PRIVACY & DISCLOSURE POLICIES~ DIY Large Scale Canvas Artwork Supplies:

  • 1×3 Pine boards
  • Nails/1″screws
  • Staples
  • Shower Curtain or Fabric

Procedure:

  1. First thing is first, find a shower curtain or some fabric you absolutely love! I found this one from Amazon for about $20 & I have a bunch more of my favorites below!

2. Next, start building the frame. Decide the size you want the canvas, then cut the 1×3 pine boards to that length & height.

3. Once my board were cut to size, I started assembling the frame with nails & wood glue. I started with the outside base frame.

Make sure to use a square to keep your corners accurate!

4. I used the fancy new steamer my mom got me & steamed the curtain. You could probably just iron it but I really wanted to try this thing out!

5. Once I was done I laid the shower curtain facedown & set the frame over it. Then I wrapped the curtain around the frame, pulled it taught, & stapled it to the frame.

BIG TIP: Start at the center not the edges, to ensure you are pulling evenly

6. The edges I simply folded in like a present.

7. Staple them to the frame the same way.
