I still can’t believe how easy it was to paint this canvas wall art. I know it might not look like the perfect art piece. But I am so happy with how it turned out. You won’t believe how easy it is 🙂



Stretched canvas

Fresh leaves

Spray paint


The Steps

You can use a plain canvas or you can choose to paint your canvas in a colour that you like before making the art with the leaves. I did start paint my canvas. I left it white just like I got it from the store.


Place your greenery or leaves on the the canvas in any pattern you like.


Spray paint the canvas with leaves all over. You can go heavy with the paint in some areas and lighter with the paint in some areas. Try not to let the paint get under the leaves as much as possible.

I had to use two small stones to hold one of my leaves in place as it was blowing away while I was spraying the paint.


After you are finish spray painting, remove the leaves one by one.


Try not to let the leaves touch other areas of the canvas while removing them.


Leave your new piece of canvas art to dry for about and hour before placing it where you want it.


If you have been reading my other posts, you probably would have realised that I love wildlife and most this natural and rustic. I like that I could use leaves from my yard to make such a beautiful painting in just a few minutes. I hope you try this too. If you do, please let me know 🙂
