DIYP-Handmade Gift Idea: Art

This is such an easy idea and I think it makes a unique (expensive-looking) gift!

You can create this gift on any scale, a small piece of art for a desk or a large piece of art for your friend’s empty mantel. It’s up to you!
Here’s what you need: a blank canvas and a vinyl decal (large canvas for large decal, small canvas for small decal)
In the pictures below, I used an 18×24. Every week our local paper has 40-50% off coupons for Hobby Lobby and Michaels Arts & Crafts and I clip them just in case. I also found the vinyl decal at Marshalls. Etsy has a huge selection and many craft store are now carrying them.
This is the one I found:

But I love this small chandelier decal for a small canvas (only $3.50!) or this one in white ($6) with a black painted canvas. Be creative!
I removed the decal and decided not to use the chain. I placed it face down on the canvas and followed the instructions which are to lightly rub the decal with a credit card.

So simple!!
And it makes a stunning piece of art to give.

Or keep.
