Craft Project: Divider Screen

You can use this screen for privacy or just for daily inspiration. It does take some time because of its size, but well worth the time invested. If you are artistic, make your own canvas frames and hinge them together. If not, buy the large canvases and hinge them together. Look for sales at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.


Approximate Time The size makes this take more time.


  • (2 or 3) large canvases, however tall or wide you want them to be.
  • tile grout
  • acrylic paints
  • (3) hinges for two panels or (6) hinges for three panels
  • optional - large wooden "ball feet"
  • optional - fabric for covering back of canvases
  • staple gun and staples


  1. Join your canvases together with the hinges. If you are using three canvases, be sure to flip the hinges over on the third panel so it will fold the other direction.
  2. Draw out your "stones". Open out the panels to make sure your stones line up. Using a putting knife spread the tile grout on each "stone". Let dry overnight.
  3. Paint stones and let dry.
  4. Come back and fill in "grout" lines. Lines should be recessed between the tile grout.
  5. Paint your scene on the top, making sure to go all the way over the edges.
  6. Optional - glue on your "ball feet" on each corner of each canvas.
  7. Optional - staple fabric on back of each canvas.
