Doily Canvas Art

It's really easy to make, and you only need a few supplies;
Doilies Rub-ons
Blank Canvas (mine is 8" x 10")

First cut out some of the Doilies Rub-ons are start putting them on the Canvas.

Keep putting more of the doilies on the canvas to make a nice arrangement. Alternate using the different rub-on colors. You can also layer them on top of each other, this adds some nice dimension.

I just used a popsicle stick as my rub-on tool. They will transfer on easily, but make sure they are really adhered good, you should see the canvas texture show through the rub-ons.

To protect the rub-ons use a decoupage, and paint on a thin layer over the whole canvas. Don't worry it dries clear. I used the Collage Pauge Instant Decoupage designs by Traci in matte (it also comes in glossy).

That's it - really simple and easy! I've already had some compliments on it from some friends. I can't wait to make more canvases with the other rub-on designs.

  1. I love this!!! I am totally going to make one and then link back to your blog. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  2. I love this idea too. Where did you get the doily rub ons? I am a new follower also.


  3. So perfect! Love this idea!

  4. I love this and want to make one to go with my house!!!! Do you think I could spray paint the rub ons?

  5. This is so pretty, but I have never heard of a doily rub on.

  6. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm doing this in a larger scale for my daughter's new big girl room - used regular paper doilies, though, and spray painted them. I'm having an artist friend help with the layout and will then use spray adhesive to stick them on and a matte finish sealer to hold it all down (hopefully). Can't wait to get it finished!
