Fun Cheers Canvas Wall Art DIY with Layered Stencils

Just so you know — These stencils were gifted by Stencil Revolution

Here's a super easy DIY for creating some canvas wall decor via layered stencils.

I recently made this piece for my office, and I know the second I put it on IG ya'll will be requesting a tutorial — so here it is.

Cheers!

So if you've been here before — or follow me on Instagram — you probably know I've commandeered the clinking glasses emoji as my own.

A mimosa toast is one of the best parts of brunch, and the cheers symbol has become an icon of Never Skip Brunch

I recently got sent some amazing stencils from Stencil Revolution. One of them was my fave emoji, so I just knew I had to make some artwork for my office.

Layering stencils is a super easy way to create polished-looking DIY canvas art for your wall in no time.

Their stencils are super affordable and reusable, which makes them perfect for creating some DIY canvas art. I used the geometric stencil as the background for this canvas, but I'm loosely planning on using it for a full wall soon.

Let's get started with the how-to, but don't forget to pin this post for later.

step 01

Lay out the stencil for the background + Let dry

I used the geometric stencil for the background since it was such a fun pattern to do in gold and added great texture.

The thickness of the paint you use can impact how your stencil turns out.

Thinner paint is more likely to bleed under the stencil while thicker paint makes it easier to create straight lines.

Since the stencil was bigger than my canvas, I positioned it by lining it up at the bottom corner.

I secured it with a couple pieces of tape in the middle since the stencil is large and detailed.

step 02

Paint the background

I used some 20K Gold Metallic Acrylic paint — it has a really great shimmer and is dark enough to show up on white with just one coat and make it pop with good contrast. 

I wanted my canvas to have a hand-painted effect, so I let my paint bleed just a little bit.

If you want super sharp lines, I would recommend painting very carefully or using a paint thickener to help you place your paint more precisely.

Once my stencil was almost painted in, I took the tape off I had used to secure it in the middle of the canvas and painted in that section as well.

step 03

Lay out the second stencil & Paint 

After my background was dry, I centered my Champagne Glasses stencil and secured with tape.

I painted it two different colors — a light pink ("sherbert" + a bit of "marigold") for the middle beverage part of the glass and a darker coral ("cherry blossom," "sherbert," and "marigold" all mixed) for the top and bottom of the glass.

After my stenciled glasses were dry, I added some details in by hand.

I added some texture with some extra paint on top of the three bubbles at the top of the glass — then added in some more bubbles as white dots around them.

I also painted an outline of my darker coral color along the sides and bottom of the light pink "drink" part to make the glass look complete. You can see what it looks like without this outline in the photo above.

If you're using just one color, you probably don't need to do this, but since I wanted my glass and the drink to be different colors, I painted on the outline to make the glasses look polished and complete.

step 04

Clean your stencils

I cringe when I hear the word clean, but this step is so important to keeping your stencils in good condition and making them fully reusable.

If you let the paint dry on the stencil, it can gum up your stencil and make it harder to get a sharp line the next time you use it.

I love using baby wipes to clean stencils — yes this is a total #MommyHack but they make cleanup so easy — these Water Wipes are by far the best since they help get all the paint off and don't leave any residue.

I clean them a little as I paint since the paint is easier to wipe off when it's wet and with bigger stencils the paint might dry before you're all finished painting it out.

 

Voilà!
