Dollar Tree Canvas Idea Using Stickers

Thanks for Sharing!

My Dollar Tree canvas idea using stickers is such an easy and inexpensive craft to make. Their wall decals are perfect to use to create canvas wall art!

If you’re an avid Dollar Tree shopper, then you have seen the section of wall stickers they sell, and if you haven’t you’re missing out!

DOLLAR TREE CANVAS IDEA USING STICKERS

Dollar Tree sells a variety of themed decals that stick to the wall, but I use them for crafting. I used their butterfly stickers on my memo board thrift store upcycle.

I chose to use a couple of my mermaid wall decals for my canvas craft project. I have lots more mermaids left over from the sticker sheet to use for future crafting, too.

Visit different Dollar Tree store locations to see a wider variety as I sometimes find different sticker themes when shopping from store to store.

PICTURES LEAD TO PRODUCTS YOU MAY NEED:

I used my 2-pack canvas, purchased from Michael’s, that was already in my stash that I wanted to use up, but Dollar Tree also carries canvas that will work well with their stickers. I like theirs also and used it to make my watermelon button canvas craft.

HOW TO MAKE DOLLAR TREE WALL ART

STEP 1: MEASURE AND TAPE OFF

  • Lightly mark the center of your canvas using a ruler and pencil.
  • I marked in 3 different areas to keep the tape correctly centered.
  • Place the painter’s tape on the canvas so that the center of the tape is centered on top of your pencil mark.
  • Add another strip of tape next to the first strip, then add another strip of tape next to that one.
  • Peel off the middle strip from the 3 tape strips. Continue like so until you end up with it looking like the photo below.
  • If you are using the type of canvas I used with the visible edge, continue taping over as seen below.
  • I wanted the canvas sides and back to have neat and finished stripes as well.

STEP 2: PAINT STRIPES

  • Use the foam brush to paint 2 coats on the canvas sides and back.
  • Once dry, paint 2 coats on the front side.
  • Pull up tape which will reveal white stripes as seen in the photo below.
  • Make sure the painted stripes are completely dry before going to step 3.

STEP 3: APPLY MORE TAPE

  • Place painter’s tape on top of your painted color which leaves the white stripes visible.
  • Paint 2 coats of your second color on back, sides and front.
  • Remove tape.

HOW TO PUT DOLLAR TREE STICKERS ON CANVAS

STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR STICKER

  • To avoid any wrinkling or tearing mishaps, cut around your sticker.
  • Carefully remove the decal from the backing.

STEP 2: APPLY MOD PODGE

  • Place the sticker in your desired location.
  • Lift up half and apply Mod Podge underneath on the canvas, then likewise for the other half.
  • Press down and smooth out the sticker.
  • Apply Mod Podge over the entire canvas and let dry.
  • The Mod Podge will dry clear.

HANGING SUGGESTIONS:

Depending upon what type of canvas you use, you can add sawtooth hangers on the back or attach ribbon on the back for hanging.

  1. Doesn’t the Dollar Tree carry the best stickers, Allison? Seems like there are a million and one ways to use them, lol! Your mermaid canvas is so cute and adorable! Love the colors of the stripes you created, too! Quite unique!

  2. I love these! My nieces would love something like this! This is such a great idea. You could get large canvases from a craft store and customize art for any room with the wall stickers at Dollar Tree. Thank you for the inspiration! I just added a new collage with your photo of your project to our group.
    Happy Hopping,
    Niki

  5. This is super cute home decor. I can see this in a kid’s room for sure! I love the way you made the canvas, too, I could use that design for multiple projects. I have to see if I can find those stickers at my DT and what all else they have.

  6. Marci, you’ll love the variety of wall stickers Dollar Tree carries! I think they might be in the aisle with the clothespins??? Thanks for pinning!

  7. T’onna, I like Dollar Tree wall stickers because the sheets come with so many stickers that you can have lots left over for more projects or you can make much larger art than I did. Thanks for pinning!
