My inspiration came while wondering the isles at Hobby Lobby. I came across this great frame on canvas that I knew I needed to have. But the more I looked at it the more I decided that I could make it my self and make it to fit into my Halloween decor style.
This is what my finished project looks like and I LOVE it!!!
Unfortunately I didn't photograph step by step instructions for you but I think we can handle this with out it.
This is what you'll need:
* blank canvas (I got mine at Michaels using my 40% off coupon)
*Ivory Krylon spray paint
* black acrylic paint
*Frog tape (which I would recommend over plain blue painters tape)
*4x6 black frame
First I spray painted my canvas ivory and let that dry. While that was drying I printed out my chevron pattern that I found on the Sunset website which you can find HERE. After I had cut that out I placed it on my canvas and used Frog tape to cover the exposed canvas. Once I had my first one done I would move my pattern and repeat.
After it's all taped off I applied 3 coats of the black acrylic paint (letting it dry between each coat).
My favorite part is taking off the tape to see those fun stripes.
I created a Halloween printable in Photoshop and had it printed at Walmart's one hour photo which is cheaper than paying for a color copy. I also found my 4x6 black frame at Walmart for $3 but you could also use a frame from the Dollar Tree. I removed the glass and any backing from the frame.

After I had placed my printable in the frame I use some E600 glue to adhere the frame to the canvas. I let that dry over night before standing it upright. Of course you can paint this to match your own Halloween decor, I think it would look amazing in silver or orange as well.
I am excited to see it among my other fun Halloween decorations this year!
I also love glittery black skulls. This is a project I did using one that you can find on my blog.
