Boo Canvas Art

Friday night after Jack went to bed I was feeling a little creative and decided to make a canvas for Halloween. Since I'm not very artsy I needed to keep it simple. 

First I taped off my stripes. It was pretty easy since I used 2 inch tape.

I then painted the not taped stripes yellow. After two coats I pulled the tape off while the paint was still wet. 

I then carefully painted where the tape was orange. I was going for a candy corn look.

Once things were all dry I painted boo onto the canvas. 

It isn't perfect but I still think it turned out pretty cute. If I find the right ribbon I might add that to the back. We don't have a lot of Halloween decorations so it is nice to contribute a little something. 


  1. I love it!! So cute! I need to start thinking about Halloween decorations! :)

  2. How cute! For a non-crafty person, you are pretty crafty!
