Halloween Canvas Wall Hanging

In a few days, I’ll be posting about an amazing blogger’s night out that took place at Gardner Village a few weeks ago.  One of my favorite stores at the village (aren’t they all?) is Pine Needles where you can find more fun fabric then you’ll know how to handle.  I went ahead and busted out this fun little project using a green chevron print fat quarter from their store.  Did you know that a fat quarter will fit perfectly on a 16×20 canvas???  Sweet.  I spent no money on this project…had everything on hand, but if you were purchasing supplies, it would be really inexpensive to make.

Canvas:  Michael’s Craft store

Fabric:  Pine Needle’s

Frame for Skull:  $ Store..it was hot pink–gave it a coat of black spray paint and brought out the detail with some silver acrylic paint

Skull:  $ Store, last year

Bats:  The file you all got as a freebie…shrunk those babies down and cut a gazillion on my silhouette on a sheet of black 12×12 scrapbook paper.

Instructions:  Modge Podge the fabric onto the canvas with a foam brush…I started at the top and glued a 1/3 of the canvas at a time, finishing off with the sides.  It was super fast and easy…I then put a coat over the top as well so that the end result looked like I bought the canvas in a chevron print…you really can’t tell that it is fabric glued on.  Oh…and I watered down the glue a bit.  Then, I glued on the frame and the skull and applied the bats with glue dots (a 10 minute job, promise).  I just bent their wings up a bit to give it some dimension.

If you liked this little project…I’ve got another fun one in the works for next week that will cost you a couple bucks tops.
