10 Minute DIY Wall Art For A Boy Room

10 Minute DIY Customized Wall Art For A Boy Room

Hi Friends! Is it just me or does this fall feel busy, busy, busy? There is just so much going on right now, some days I don’t feel like I have enough time to breath much less do the million and one things that need to get done. When things get overwhelming and hectic I sometimes have to remind myself to slow down and take time to enjoy spending time with my family. 

A couple of weeks ago I made Bean a piece of customized wall art for her room, I shared the project over on The Inspired Home. The moment I finished making it, Turtle said to me “What about meeeeeee??? Will you make me one tooooooo???”

My little guy tends to get overlooked a lot when it comes to the handmade gift department. Bean is so appreciative when I make her something, she gushes about it, thanks me profusely, shares it with all her friends… Turtle on the other hand doesn’t quite “get” handmade yet, so I tend to make him less. It feels good to have your handmade work appreciated! 

I decided to set aside a bit of time last weekend and make him his own wall art. Now that I’ve designed the files for you to download this project should only take 10 minutes or so to make!

I had a hard time figuring out which of these designs I liked best, so I decided to include them all in a printable for you along with 2 different variations of the quote.

  • 12 inch by 12 inch square framed canvas (I bought mine at Michael’s. I also sometimes buy canvases at my local dollar store)
  • 15 inch by 15 inch piece of your favorite fabric (The fabric I used in this project was Michael Miller Fabric’s Multi Bots and Rocket .)
  • Download of printable (all 8 versions available in PDF)
  • Printable fabric (I love the printable fabric from Cricut
  • Spray adhesive and/or staple gun

1. Download your quote, print it on the printable fabric and cut to size.

2. Lay your fabric over the canvas to determine positioning. Make sure that the fabric is nicely ironed and free of wrinkles.

3. Following the directions on the bottle, spray the spray adhesive on the canvas. Lay fabric over the canvas and smooth away any wrinkles. (Alternatively if you don’t have spray adhesive, stretch fabric over canvas, smooth away wrinkles and proceed to next step.)
