Holiday Chevron Art

We have two fireplaces in our current home which means two mantels to decorate at Christmas!! This year I was looking for a new addition to our living room fireplace and decided to take my love for chevron and create some new mantel art.


I am in love with this new pop of color! It was very easy to make and ended up being a quick evening project after the boys went to bed one night.


Supplies:
2 16x20 canvases ( I already had this size laying around but you could substitute)
Frogtape Shape Tape Chevron: purchased at Lowes
Gray/Silver Acrylic Paint purchased at Michaels
Red Chipboard Glitter Letters purchased at Michaels
White paint for touchups


 Step 1: I measured and taped off the chevron lines using the chevron shape tape.  I basically used an extra piece to space the lines evenly. 
Step 2: Next, I used a foam brush to paint on the gray paint and removed the shape tape as soon as I was finished painting
Step 3: I touched up with white paint and a small brush
Step 4: Waited 15 minutes and attached the chipboard letters! You may need to use some additional glue to stick to the canvas
Step 5: Display!  I will be showing additional photos soon of the completed fireplace look


Hope you've enjoyed this quick & easy chevron art tutorial.
