Fun Hanging Plant Canvas Embroidery
Did you know that it is really easy to embroider onto a stretched canvas? Once you've tried this craft, you will be hooked. I've made cool embroidered paper art before (see here), but this canvas one was even easier.
I just used a cheap large stretched canvas from my local craft store. You can use a canvas of any size to suit your needs.
First, I drew out my hanging plant design on some scrap lining paper in a black sharpie. You can copy my design for free (link in bio at the end).
I then taped the design to the canvas to hold it in place. Use tape that won't mark the canvas.
The next bit was the fun bit. Using a pushpin, I punched holes all along the back lines. The holes were about 5mm apart.
Make sure that there are holes where the lines intersect too.
I then removed the paper and using the holes as guides painted the leaves green and the pot terracotta.
Using a simple backstitch and the punched holes, I embroidered the outline of the pot and hanging holder in black.
Then with green thread, I embroidered the outline of the leaves.
To finish off, I made a real tassel for the bottom of the pot and stitched it into place.
This is one hanging plant, I can't kill. For more details visit the blog.
