Canvas Painting and Wire Name

I wanted to share this fun wall decoration that I made for my daughters room. Unfortunately, this was one of those spur-of-the-moment projects, and I didn't think to take photos during the process. In all honesty, this was my first time painting on a stretched canvas, and my first time using acrylics so I wasn't to sure that it would even turn out. However, I'm quite happy with the results and my daughter absolutely loves it so I will do my best to explain how I did it.


  • Canvas (I found mine at Walmart. Two for $7)
  • Wire

First thing I did was write the name down on a piece of paper in the size that I wanted (if you have bad handwriting you can print a word off of the computer in any font.) I then tried my best to bend the wire along with the name on the paper. This took quite a bit of bending and finagling to get the wire just right.

I used various shades of pink for the background. After it dried I painted the flower. Once the flower dried I decided were I wanted my name to go and I used painters tape to paint my blue stripe across the canvas. After the blue stripe was dry I poked the ends of my wire through the canvas and then twisted them to keep the wire from falling out.

The name bowed out a little so I had to glue it to the canvas in a few spots.

I am actually very happy with the results. What do you think?
