Easy fabric canvas art with Mod-hodgepodge

This fabric is canvas type used fun patterned fabric for the background. Just add a painted-wood-cut-out on the front panel for instant wall decor.
Hey there! As you may or may not, I’ve been some of the canvas art work for you to know for my place – cheap, but cute. I shred dug through my fabric the other day and found some Denyse Schmidt County Fair fabric.
It turned out, it was just enough to rotate the cover 12″ x 16″ screen, so the wheels started. Then I looked through my surface, and found a wood-bird's neck.
Don’t remember when or where I this particular one, but I’ve seen similar, various craft shops, especially in the seasonal area.
Anyhoo, I have this Mod smorgasbord canvas project in less than an afternoon. It’s SO easy, even a beginner crafter can do it. Here’s how I made these DIY-canvas-art.
DIY-fabric Canvas Art
Collect These Supplies

Canvas, 12″ x 16″
Mod hodgepodge Gloss (because this is not a heavy wear item and will hang on the wall, you can; they recycle their fuel too)
scrap of fabric on canvas
piece of wood on the front
acrylic paint –you’ ll obviously want to match your fabric. I have the following:

FolkArt acrylic paint – coastal Blue
Apple Barrel acrylic paint – Wedgewood Green


Flat brush
craft glue
staple gun or small nails and a hammer

you want to first prepare the fabric before painting. To do this, wash and dry the fabric (do not use fabric softener). Iron and then lay out on a covered work surface. Wax paper is better, for the of the table cover.
With a brush, paint a thin layer of Mod-pick-and-mix on your fabric. Let it air dry. This allows you to cut the fabric, such as paper, with no ragged edges.
, While the Mod-hodgepodge dry on the fabric, paint your piece of wood. You will more than likely have to paint with more layers – and don’t forget the edges. Don’t be afraid about the back.
Once the leaves were finished, I painted the bird blue. He can be purple if you want. Or a horse of a different color, bird, yellow, orange . . . whatever suits to you. Set it aside to dry. time the fabric on the canvas. I have a staple gun, starting at one edge and stretch the fabric. My method was a bottom, top, then sides. The corners are more. If you don’t have a staple gun, you have to use small finishing nails and a hammer. Just be careful not to have the fabric tear.
The corners are something very special. I made “flowers” how to corner – stuffed the two parts on each side and then fold down. I hope you can see what I did.

as soon As I stretched the fabric over the canvas, I gave it another layer of Mod-hodgepodge for good measure.

After the tensioning of the canvas, Mr bird, seal with Mod-hodgepodge. Here, too, the pages but don’and t anxiety on the back.
Use stick glue, Mr bird down on the center of the canvas. Wait 24 hours, depends on your fabric canvas art on the wall.
another tip – if you don’t find a piece of wood that you want, consider painting something on the front of the fabric with a freezer paper stencil or freehand.
