DIY Tiny Hand Painted Canvas Home Signs

2 Materials
1 Hour

I found the cutest little canvases at Target this week and they were on sale! They ended up to be only $1 each! They are hand painted and couldn't be cuter as a little accent in a tiered tray or around the house.

  • 4"x4" tiny canvases
  • rebar wire
  • wooden beads
  • hot glue
  • sharpie marker
  • gingham ribbon

I began with these inexpensive supplies.

Most of these supplies I already had around my house but you can find them on Amazon or at the dollar store. 

First, I drilled holes in the top of my canvas to secure the wire. 

I placed a wooden bead on each end of the wire and stuck it into the hole I drilled with a drop of hot glue.

The hot glue holds the bead in place and the wire in the hole. 

After that easy step was the design.

I drew a very light line across the center of my canvas using pencil to find the center. 

Using a Sharpie marker I drew the word I wanted across the line. 

When the Sharpie was very dry, I erased the pencil line. 

If you're not good at hand lettering, you can either use a rub on transfer or a stencil to create the words.

You can also paint the canvas, or decoupage a design onto the tiny canvas. 

This would be cute with a red background for Valentine's Day too!

These little cuties are available on the Homeroad Etsy Shop this month.
