Have you ever found yourself wondering what to do with the blank space on the wall? Not sure if you should hang art, pictures, or objects? One object or a whole gallery wall? Decorating the walls can be hard! And expensive. Which is why so many people decide to leave it blank, better blank than a pricey mistake.
But with this simple 30-minute project you can go from blank space to uniquely modern. Add some lighting and greenery and you have a well-designed corner of the home.
To create this Modern Wall Hanging you will need:
- duck canvas, cut to the desired size
- grommets and hammer
- painters tape, stencils, shapes for creating the design
- Plasti Dip Craft paint (Get yours at Amazon)
notes: I used Midnight Black, Crisp White, and Pearlizer Plasti Dip.
Step 1: Prepare the canvas
Determine the size of the canvas. You can cut and then hem the edges or rip the canvas to size. I opted to rip the canvas to give it more of a frayed and worn look. Then I added two grommets to the top, following the directions on the grommet package.
Step 2: Lay the painters tape
Painter’s tape was added to the canvas to create random geometrical designs. Make sure you press down on the painter’s tape to keep the Plasti Dip from leaking under. I laid newspaper down on areas I did not want to paint to keep the canvas clean and crisp.
Other options for creating a design include:
- using bowls in different sizes for creating circles
- stencils for letters or shapes
- laying down various sized leaves to create a new pattern
Step 3: Spray with Plasti Dip Craft paint
Spray the canvas with Plasti Dip Craft, moving the painter’s tape or stencils as needed. If you are moving the painter’s tape, and need to tape on an area you have already sprayed, make sure you allow the paint to dry before applying the tape.
Note: I made a mistake and accidentally sprayed some of the Peralizer on the wrong section. After drying the Plasti Dip Craft paint peeled right off. So helpful!
This quick project was perfect for the blank wall space in my living room and brings just the right amount of modern to my modern farmhouse. It is also a great project for kids and parents to work on together, giving children the opportunity to create something unique for their own bedroom. We are currently working on transforming a little garden shed to a clubhouse and I think duck canvas pennants are in our future! Wouldn’t it be so cute to have them each create a pennant with their name on it? All I would need to do is cut the pennants from the canvas, have them lay out the letters on the pennant and help them spray the pennants with the Plasti Dip craft paint. Definitely adding this to our clubhouse to-do list.
