You’ll need an empty wooden picture frame. Don't worry about raised edges, because the molded frames actually look great for the front of your canvas and make it even more decorative...no need to frame!
Some durable fabric…maybe duckcloth or how about repurposing a tea towel or cloth napkin.
Stretch and staple your chosen fabric to the backside of your frame. Decide which part of the frame you want to be the front of your canvas. Alternate sides as you go to keep fabric taut.
Give yourself a blank canvas by brushing on a coat or two of gesso.
Instant canvas. This is also a great way to introduce your kids to the process of making their own canvases!
Paint away and display it proudly.
Your next masterpiece awaits, my friend! Have at it with gusto!
