Ginger Snap Crafts: framed canvas with chalkboard pennant {tutorial}

framed canvas with chalkboard pennant {tutorial}

Last week I shared this quick & easy tutorial over on Johnny in A Dress.
So just in case you missed it…. here it is again!

I had found some canvas prints on sale for a great price
several years ago.  They weren’t stretched on a frame,
so they sat rolled up under my bed for the longest time.
I wasn’t sure what to with them until recently.
We are just about to start rearranging & swapping some
of the kiddos’ rooms….so I made this for my youngest, Cole’s room.
For this project you'll need: a 16x20 inch frame, a canvas print, washi tape
chalkboard vinyl cut into triangles {I just left the backing on the vinyl.} & twine

For the framed canvas print:
(1) First I took my frame apart. 
(2) I had to trim my canvas because it was a little too big! 
So I just used the glass as a guide & trimmed it with scissors to fit my frame. 
(3) I put my frame back together but I didn't use the glass.  I just left it off. 
I wanted the nice texture of the canvas to show.

  • For my cute chalkboard pennant:
    (1) I just used my die cutter to cut some pennants out of chalkboard vinyl.
    (2) Then I used a big sewing needed to thread the twine through the pennants. 
    (3) Once my pennants were all strung I used chalk to write my son's birthday. 
    (4) Then I used washi tape to tape the pennant banner to the bottom of my frame. 

    That's it!  Super easy.
I really love how it turned out!
Love those big sweet eyes, too!

  1. So cute. I need to print and frame some stuff. This is very motivating.

  2. Great idea with the banner. I didn't even know you could get chalkboard vinyl.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this idea!!! My daughters second birthday party is this saturday and I'm going to make this now. How fantastic!
