Yep, Christmas is already hitting our household. My son asked why I was making Christmas decor when we just had Halloween, lol! Today I am sharing these super easy and fun DIY Christmas Canvas Art. I love customizing decorations for my home, especially during the holidays! It’s always fun to add a little personality to you home decor and I am never one to pass on a little DIY craft.
To make these adorable art pieces you need:
- 4- 6×6 canvases
- craft paint
- modge podge
- sponge paint brush
- Stencil- For this tutorial I used my silhouette cameo and adhesive vinyl to create my stencils.
To start, you’ll create your stencil. I used my silhouette software to create the designs I wanted and then cut them out on adhesive vinyl. After I had my stencil cut I added transfer paper for easy application to the canvas.
When you have your vinyl secured on the canvas you’ll press it down to make sure it doesn’t have any gaps. Now your ready to stencil and glitter it up! I painted the areas that I wanted the metallic paint and then let those areas dry completely so the glitter wouldn’t stick where it shouldn’t.
When all the paint was dry I applied modge podge and then sprinkled glitter on top.
Let this dry and you can gently remove the vinyl stencil. Now you’ll have an awesome set of canvas art to decorate your home with! These would also make some fun gifts for the holiday season.
I would love to see the beautiful canvases you make! Do you like to make holiday home decor?

Thank you for posting on Motivation Monday!
Boy would I love to have a pattern for that curly antlered reindeer. Did you by any chance save the vinyl from that one, maybe you could put it on here as a pattern. Not all of us have a silhouette so not able to have access to patterns and projects you do. The canvases would be so pretty hung up together. Might not be just like yours but you sure inspired me to try this since I have some smaller flat canvases. Would mount them all on one piece of wood to hang.
Please let me know if you could provide the patterns for both reindeer heads actually. Thanks if you can.
Please reply to my email address
Hope you’re enjoying the season, great time to be alive and enjoying it.
Hi Jane Ellen, thanks so much! I had to purchase the reindeer in the sillouette online store and only have them as silhouette cut files. I’ll look around and see if I can find some similar ones to share.

I love all four canvases, but particularly the reindeer. I love the colors you used on all of them! I don”t have a Silhouette either, so I would definitely be interested in all four patterns if you were able to provide them.
Thanks so much Karen, I was only able to purchase the designs from the sillhouette store as cut files so I don’t have a jpeg or anything to share. Sorry! I’ll look around and see if I can find something for you!
