Canvas Flower Bouquet

Miss Maya models my new flower bouquet.

I’m all about recycling old materials. For example, I had a framed canvas I painted that was…well, let’s just say I would never let it see the light of day it was so awful. But in my Crafty Chica land, I’m all about making tasty lemon bars out of lemons. (Lemonade is too boring)

I cut the canvas away from the frame and used the back side to make some fun flowers. I then bundled them into a cute spring bouquet as you see above.

Supplies:
Tulip Fabric Paints

Aleene’s Tacky Tape
Raw canvas
Paint brushes
Scissors
Thread
Floral tape
Floral wire
Cut out assorted sizes of pedals. Separate them into stacks of five or six.

Paint.

Add two tones! To add more texture, I sewed along the edges, added glitter, etc.

Start with one pedal, add glue to the bottom and wrap around the piece of floral wire. Continue adding other pedals all around. Make sure they are all secure. Brush on some glaze and add glitter!

Take some leaves from silk flowers and add them to the bottom of each flower. Or you can paint your own leaves from the canvas! Glue in place.

Arrange them to your liking and group them together. Wrap with one wire to secure them and then wrap with floral tape to cover the wire.

And there you have it – a fun spring bouquet of canvas flowers!

Other ideas:
Write on them with a marker
Embroider on them
Turn into brooches or pins
Cut up an actual painting and make the flowers1

You can also use this as a wedding idea – simple change the paint colors to your liking!

 

Love & light,

  1. Gorgeous! When I saw the top picture I thought you’d bought plastic flowers & painted them but love how you made the petals yourself! Amazing!
