Reuse a Paint Canvas as a Memo Board

contest winner icon

Got an old paint canvas lying around? Perhaps from a botched painting attempt? Don't toss 'em! One great way to recycle these is this:

Cover complete canvas with somewhat heavy material. Staple to the back of canvas. Hot glue ribbons in diagonal criss-crossing lines, attaching a decorative button where the ribbons intersect.

This creates an extremely useful, not to mention attractive, memo/picture board!

Wait! If you paint you can cover the canvas with gesso and paint over it. Artists do this all the time because canvas is expensive.

Thanks for a great idea. I have two of these which I kept, thinking there must be something I could use them for... and now I know what to do with them- thanks again!
