Custom DIY Canvas (Personalized Art)

I'm taking one more day to unpack and "recoup" from our Myrtle Beach trip, so I invited Tracie from Cleverly Inspired to share a DIY project with you all that is simple, affordable, and super-adorable! Stick around to learn how to create your own Custom Canvas Art:

I hung out with Tracie at Haven, and she is just as cute and sweet as she is on her blog. And, boy, does she have some DIY skills! Please help me welcome her to Serenity Now!

I am so excited to be visiting here at Amanda’s !! Thanks so much for having me! We had so much fun hanging out at Haven…cannot wait to catch up again next year! My name is Tracie and I am author of CleverlyInspired. My blog focuses on thrifty DIY projects, decorating, remodeling and some easy recipes. My goal is for your to be inspired to be clever in your own home. I hope you can stop by and visit me sometime!



Here is a great project that you can get done this weekend. Personalized art....perfect for any room! DSC_0009

I am so thrilled that you all like how the peanut’s room came out! She is loving the space. Her brother is anxiously awaiting his new room now. I wanted to share with you how to create the artwork that I used in her room. It is really simple and I think it is always nice to have something personal on the wall. 

I ordered 3 prints from costco. They are 16 by 20. I did black and white because we thought that would make a nice statement on the wall. DSC_0002DSC_0003DSC_0004

Get some inexpensive canvas sets at the craft store that are also 16 by 20. Spray with tacky spray and position a print on top. Flip over and smooth out. DSC_0006

That is it!! I simple and on the cheap! Love it! Nice thing about these is that when we have another great picture to blow up…we can change them out without too much cost. Cause you know how 12 year old girls are…they tend to change their mind a lot! :)

Thanks for having me, Amanda!!

Thanks, Tracie, for an inspiring start to our week!

Head over to Cleverly Inspired today, and let Tracie know I sent you. Her DIY skills will knock your socks off!

What's your favorite kind of wall art to use in your home?


  1. I must try this! It seems too easy and inexpensive to be true! I'm so excited! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. How Cool! I pinned this to pass along the great idea :)

  3. That's so cool! I'm definitely going to have to try this!

  4. What a great way to create wall art inexpensively!

  5. Hey Amanda! Hope you've successfully completed "re-entry." Honestly, sometimes I feel like I need a vacation from my vacations! You were so smart to line up guest posters in your absence. I was so jet-lagged last week that I didn't even read them all, although I think I did click over here nearly every day. A visit to your blog always makes me smile. :)

    Being back in Durham makes me wish we had a house in the mountains. It is so darn hot that it's a little depressing. I don't want to wish away the summer, but honestly I will be glad for the autumn weather to come. I just sort of wilt in the summertime and I get so little done.

    Your guest poster today was great! I've never met Tracie--I'll have to head over to Cleverly Inspired and say hello. I'm glad you got to hang out with fun people at Haven (although I admit that I'm a little jealous--I so wish I could have joined y'all!).

  6. Now that's what you call innovation and economy in DIY!


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
