Fabric Wrapped Jewelry Canvas
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
- Large canvas
- 4 small canvases
- 4 ceramic knobs
- Spray glue
- X-Acto® knife
- Cream paint
- Foam core board
- Hot glue gun/glue
1. Paint the 4 small canvases cream and set aside to dry.
2. Cut fabric so that it is large enough to wrap around to the back of the canvas. Apply a thin coat of spray adhesive to the front of the large canvas. Lay the fabric over top the canvas covering the entire canvas, wrapping around to the back.
3. Use hot glue to glue the back of the fabric in place, make sure the fabric is taught and there are no wrinkles. After the edges are secured and glued in place, trim off any excess.
4. Flip the large canvas over. Measuring long ways, divide the canvas in 5. There will be 4 points on the canvas where the knobs will go. To make sure the 4 points are centered, find the middle of the canvas from top to bottom and poke a small hole through the canvas and fabric with the X-Acto® blade.
5. Cut two pieces of foam core board to fit in the back of the canvas, making sure to add the same four holes created in step 4.
6. Poke a hole in the center of each small canvas with the X-Acto® blade, cut foam core to fit the recess in the back of the canvas to reinforce.
7. Hot glue the foam core pieces inside the recess in the back of the canvas to reinforce the canvas.
8. Remove the nut from the back of the knob. Place the knob through the small canvas and foam core, then through the large canvas and foam core. Secure the knob in place by adding the nut back in place and hand tightening. Repeat with all 4 knobs.
9. Depending on the length of the knob hardware, cut off any excess of the knob bolts to allow the canvas to lay flat against the wall. This may require a bolt cutters or a grinder.
