Nursery Room Decor DIY Canvas Wall Art.

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a very special craft. This is the very first craft I made for my little girl’s nursery room and she was about 4 months old. I made these cute and colorful canvas wall art with illustrated baby animals.

First of all I wanted to apologise because these pics are not very good. These crafty wall arts were made when I wasn’t blogging yet and I just happened to have some pics of the process because I was taking them with my mobile to sending them to my mom.  I just really wanted to share this because it holds a very special meaning!

I wanted to make her bedroom more like a nursery room, and I had seen these super cute squared wall arts on a store but our situation wasn’t good and we couldn’t afford to be buying things other than priority ones.


So I thought that maybe I could make them myself which would be even more special. I had a few paints and I had seen on a Chinese store some canvas in less than 1Euro. So I made them all 3 for less than 5 Euros because I had to buy some brushes LOL.

What you need:

  • 3 Canvases
  • Acrylic paint {I used the basic ones: cyan, magenta, Yellow and white and mixed to get the colors I wanted}
  • Brushes
  • 6B pencil
  • Regular pencil

I started looking for some illustrations samples on Internet so I could get an idea and then I made them using Adobe Illustrator. When I had them done I printed them in the same size the canvas were.

I traced the whole shape of the drawings on the back of the paper using the 6B pencil. It is softer and darker. I traced it roughly making the lines thick. Then I placed the paper over the canvas right side facing me {penciled side facing the canvas} and started tracing again the whole drawing but this time very carefully. This would transfer the drawing to the canvas. I repeated the process with the other 2.

Then I started to paint one canvas at a time, paying attention to details and trying my best to make paint lines as steady as possible LOL.


When I had them done I would let them dry over night. I was actually making them mostly at nights when Emma was sleeping.

So that’s it… The canvas wall art is ready! I hung them on my baby girl’s bedroom near her crib and it gave a little color to her room! {Thankfull
