This post, DIY chevron painted canvas, brought to you by FrogTape. All opinions are 100% mine.

DIY canvas with a chevron design.

For our son’s birthday, we are surprising him by re-decorating his room. Ā  Instead of putting dark colors on his walls, we decided to just paint a canvas that we can hang in his room. Ā  Ā We had made this gray/white one in the past and we decided to make it again with blue/black for our son’s room (I will show you pictures of the process, but I didn’t take a picture of the final one yet.)

Here is how you make this DIY canvas.


  • Ā FrogTapeĀ® Ā (we have the chevron Shape Tapeā„¢) – this is a must because it has the PaintBlockĀ® Technology to keep the paint out of the unpainted part. Ā You can find out more here:Ā FrogTape’s Shape Tape
  • Wooden Canvas (I paid $7 for two of them)
  • Brush – I chose the foam brush, but I think any would work.

Take your FrogTapeĀ® Ā and space it accordingly. Ā  (you are going to love this tape!)

Start painting! Ā  Remember to have an idea before you get started! Ā  You might want to draw it out on paper before you get started painting it.
Find a friend (haha!)… get out more paint- he is using washable paints! Ā (This is our three year old)

Continue to paint, using your pattern.

When you are done, pull the tape off an you will have a beautiful picture! Ā  It is easy to make!

Give me your most creative ideas- what project can you redesign?
An old bookshelf?
A clipboard (this would be a great teacher gift paired with some cute notecards!)?

ps- Here is another one that you might like… Ā (I love navy & white)
