Craft Roundup: DIY Canvas Art

Welcome to the weekly Craft Roundup! Today I am showing some of my favorite art projects. By no means am I good at drawing and painting, so all the art tutorials included in this blog post are for the beginner artists and for people who want to make easy canvas art. Enjoy, and please feel free to share your comments below!


Hot Air Balloon Art


  • 12×16 Canvas
  • Letter Stencils
  • Hot Air Balloon Stencil
  • Sharpie Markers
  • Chalk Paint (Pool Blue)
  • Paint Brush

This canvas art is something I threw together in a couple of hours. I wanted to use a combination of different craft supplies to make a fun and easy project.
