Chevron Canvas Tutorial

Here’s the easy, three step process for creating your own chevron canvas art.

Supplies: (not pictured)

  • 1 wrapped canvas, any size (I purchased mine at Michael’s with a 40% off coupon)
  • Blue painter’s tape
  • Paint, any color (I used acrylic craft paint I had on hand, but higher end paint might work better)
  • Paint brush

Step 1:

Tape out your pattern on the canvas using blue painter’s tape. I just sort of eyeballed the chevron pattern, knowing that it wouldn’t be exactly symmetrical on each row. I was OK with that…if you’re not, consider stenciling the stripes on lightly in pencil first.

Step 2:

Apply paint to canvas. I applied several coats.

Step 3:

Once the paint dries, slowly remove the blue tape. Touch up any areas with a tiny paintbrush if needed. Step back and admire your work!

I brought my new painting to work to decorate my dreary gray cube. Loving the pop of color it brings everyday!
