Let’s face it — a lot of us have boring walls that need a pick-me-up with a splash of something. I’ve seen those home-decor-trade-with-your-neighbor shows. The wall art is typically very simple. I’m so pleased to share with you several simple tutorials that I found for canvas art. Note the key word is “simple.” Personally, I don’t want to spend a ton of money or time designing wall art; I just want instant gratification. Some of these are more complicated than others, but most are easy-peasy, like the melted crayon art above. Wouldn’t it be perfect for a kid’s room? Scroll down for more amazing ideas.
