Canvas Glue Art!


  • Canvas
  • Washable glue OR a hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Spray paint or craft paint in the color of your choice
  • Pencil
  • Saying – you’ll either hand draw or print
  • Transfer paper (optional)






Step 1: Think of/find a pattern that inspires you, and draw/trace it on your canvas with a pencil. 
Now if you aren’t feeling very creative or you want to make it more exact, there is another option. You can print something from the internet and place the paper down on the canvas with a piece of carbon transfer paper in between. Trace with your pencil and the design will end up on the canvas!



Step 2: Go over your design with glue. Make sure you don’t press the glue down as you apply. If you find that your glue settles flatter than you want, go over your design one more time once it has dried. You could also use dimensional fabric paint for this project.

Step 3: Let the glue dry 


Step 4: Spray paint the canvas any color! I liked the clean look of white on white.
