When I first wrote this post about my DIY Giraffe Canvas, I had no idea how many people would love it! I originally made this canvas (2 years ago) for Guinnyth’s nursery after seeing a much, much pricier version on Etsy. In order to cut the cost for redoing our nursery, I made my own. The total cost for this project was around $10.
To make this, go to Jo-anns (or your craft closet) and pick several different fabrics- one for each giraffe. Grab the rest of the supplies and get started!
Cheap Foam Brush (you will throw this away afterwards)
The best part about this project is how easy it is.
+ Trace giraffe shapes on fabric
+ Cut out giraffe shapes (stay inside the sharpie line so it doesn’t show)
+ And mod-podge them onto the canvas.
It is so easy and quick! Definitely make sure you mod-podge the entire canvas. If you don’t, you will have glossy and non-glossy areas when the sun light hits it the right way. So, seal it all with the mod-podge.
Let me know if you try this sweet project! It is such an eye-catcher and doesn’t cost you a ton to create. I also think using other animals would be perfection- birds, elephants, even trees!
