Lately, I have been so inspired by these Darice wood wall panel canvases! They come in several sizes, and they are the perfect surface for modern-looking DIY wall art projects. I have a stash of every size of these wooden canvases and I’ve been using them frequently. I have had my children paint original art on them, I’ve mounted baby pictures on them with washi tape, and today I will teach you how to make this fun geometric wooden canvas easy wall art.
Geometric Wooden Canvas Easy Wall Art Supplies:
- Darice Unfinished Wood Wall Panel.
- Assorted Colored Vellum.
- Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue.
- Darice Scissors.
Step 1. To begin this easy wall art project, cut geometric shapes out of various pieces of colored vellum. Cut triangles, straight strips, circles, or any other shapes you like!
Step 2. Play around with arranging the vellum shapes until you get the placement or composition you like. Experiment with layering different pieces on top of each other, and don’t forget to leave some of the wood grain from the canvas showing!
Step 3. Next, you will glue the vellum pieces onto the wood canvas with clear gel Tacky Glue. You have two options, depending on the look you want.
Option 1. Brush a light layer of glue onto the back of the vellum with a foam brush. NOTE: Vellum warps slightly when you brush glue onto it, so it will create a bumpy finish on the vellum.The vellum will want to curl up when you put the glue on it. Apply the vellum to the canvas with a smooth motion, and rub the vellum to eliminate air bubbles.
This is what the full coverage glue looks like when it’s completely dry.
When your glue is completely dry, you can either add further embellishments like a photo, a quote, or a small piece of art. You can of course hang them as they are. I really like this easy wall art in a group of two or four canvases.
