A little while back I shared with you all how I transformed a piece of canvas wall art my sister-in-law gave me. I also mentioned that I had one more that I was going to change around and this is it. So today I’ll be sharing How to Use the Cricut Explore to Upcycle Canvas Art.
The very first thing I did was simply to paint it green. This is one of the accent colors in my living room.
I then made a stencil using a Show-Offs Stencil Blank and my Cricut Explore using this method here. I had designed this stencil for the Awesome Quotes theme that I did in my Resource Library a few months back. The stencil cut files is in the Resource Library, which is available for free as a bonus to email subscribers.
I placed a few books underneath the canvas until the books were the same height as the wood edging that the canvas is stretched over. The books gave the canvas a solid surface for the stenciling. Then the canvas was stenciled with this awesome quote from Corrie ten Boom.
I also added one of my floral borders on the sides of it just because. I’ll be making my floral borders and floral repeating stencil files available in the upcoming months so be sure to stay tuned for that.
I hope this How to Use the Cricut Explore to Upcycle Canvas Art project inspires you. If you have any questions just put them in the comments and I’ll try to get to them as soon as I can. I hope you have a wonderful day!

A little about the designs:
I started using stencils on furniture in 2015 and thus began my love for all things stencil. I love how a stencil design can add detail and beauty to furniture and wall art, and how easy it is to make something beautiful become exquisite and eye catching just by adding a stencil overlay.
After stenciling for a while, I started designing my own stencils in 2016 to cut on my awesome Cricut Explore. I began offering them on my blog and in my Etsy shop. I have since closed up my Etsy shop and opened a shop right here on my blog.
I design all the stencil cut files and printables that are on my blog, and in my shop, using my own hand drawn elements, or fonts that can be found on my resource page, or a combination of both.
I have found a passion for design and strive to create unique and fun designs that can be used in a variety of settings, such as home decor, furniture, wall art, fashion design, accessory items, etc. My eye has always been drawn to the details, patterns, and embellishments in such things as home decor and clothing, so it’s a real joy for me to become part of the design process of such things.
There are a variety of tutorials on creating stencils, including cutting them using a Cricut machine and also designing your own stencils using graphics and text, here on my blog.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the stencil cut files and printables offered on my blog, in my Resource Library.
