Hot mess canvases are so fun because you get to break a lot of the traditional rules of
painting. The messier, the better which is why they are called a hot mess canvas! Just pick out a few colors and get to painting, the results speak for themselves and this technique has so many applications! Makes for a great gift too!
I chose to make a “cheeky” sign for my bathroom and I have included the design in the download below. You can make these signs for any room or occasion though. Try shades of green and for Christmas, or oranges and blacks for Halloween. I’m instantly in love with the possibilities.
I have included detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures in the download but the basic idea is that you are doing a stencil, but in reverse. Paint your canvas with multiple colors, put your vinyl design over top, and then paint with white paint. Peel away the vinyl to reveal your design! It’s very simple but there are a few important tips that will get the look just right so make sure to take a peek at those instructions!
If a “Hello Sweet Cheeks” sign for your bathroom isn’t your thing, that’s totally okay! There are tons of things you can do with a hot mess canvas. Search pinterest for ideas and look at the other hot canvas design that designer Julie Flanagan made below!
My daughter sings to her children at bedtime. Each child has his or her own special song. This project reminds me of one of those special songs.
This Hot Mess Canvas design can serve as a reminder to the especially active child of his or her special song, Be Still My Soul, and provides a calmness to make sleep easier.
