Chandelier Canvas Art

I am in the process of creating a few pieces for the walls of my creative studio and will be sharing those as I complete them.

I fell in love with this chandelier art I saw over at Craft-O-Maniac and pinned it on Pinterest to save for future inspiration. I had a spare 10 x 10 canvas sitting around and remembered the chandelier art. I had purchased a similar chandelier file from the Silhouette store months ago for a different project. So, I decided to paint the canvas teal. It took about two coats. Then, I cut the chandelier out of black vinyl and put it on the painted canvas.


I liked it but felt it needed something else to help it "pop" so I decided to bling it out and glued rhinestones on to it.

Then to finish it off, I glued black and white houndstooth ribbon to the edges of the canvas.



Love it!

Now I just need hubby to hang it!

That is just awesome. I hope when your creative studio is fully finished that you'll be taking and sharing pictures!

This is gorgeous! I had actually bought a picture similar to this for my bathroom. Totally wish I had the courage to create it! It was blue-ish with a chandelier and some rhinestones. I seriously love this though! I don't have a silhouette so I'd have to just use freezer paper and create a stencil from that.
