DIY yarn-wrapped canvas

creating change. since i took down my christmas decorations i’ve been craving change. something new. specifically: a new large piece of art. so, this is what i did:

i picked up a 36″ x 48″ white canvas with my 40% off coupon from JoAnns. i chose some new thick wool yarn in an almost-ombre selection of colors + red, and started wrapping my canvas! the red was chosen in honor of valentines day.

when the blizzard came to town, i had plenty of time to wrap yarn around a canvas! from start to finish, this entire project took me about ninety minutes. i started and finished each color by a simple knot on the back of the canvas as seen here:

that little section of red… i plan on switching it out with other colors depending on the season. next: an emerald green for st. patrick’s day. then: a mustard yellow for spring and summer!

  1. Hi Jane- You are so creative!!! I love the simplicity of this canvas. I have been wanting to create some simple art that will sit above the fireplace in my master bedroom and I love the idea of creating something like this. Hope you are staying warm out there on the East Coast.

  2. I love this! It is almost within my realm of artistic capabilities, your entire blog is like a really well curated magazine, thanks for sharing.
