Dollar Store contact paper project


I purchased an 8x10 canvas at our local Ollies for $2.69. I found this black and white contact paper at Dollar General. I just cut the contact paper to size and wrapped the canvas like a present.


I added a very nice metal cross that I already had by running a ribbon through the cross and attached it to the back of the canvas with a thumb tack. It worked perfect because of the wood on the canvas.

This project I’m keeping for myself. I hung it on the wall in my spare bedroom. This was so easy and cheap. I think the project took me less than 10 minutes and that’s because I couldn’t remember where I put my thumb tacks.

This is cute! I have canvas and shelf liner. Now all I need is a cross. Or something else that could use another layer to make it more interesting. Hmmmmmm...
