Duct Tape Chevron Canvas

We have combined two popular items, the chevron pattern and duct tape, to create this.

Crafted by Pershette.

Supplies

  • Canvas
  • Duck® Brand Duct Tape
  • Scissors
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Foam Brush

All supplies for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

1.  Using the foam brush, paint the entire canvas in paint, including the sides.
2.  Set aside to let dry.

There are two ways you can set up the pattern. You can use a ruler and a pencil to guide where you will place the duct tape or just eyeball it.

The nice thing about using the duct tape rather than painting on the chevron pattern is that the lines of the tape will be straight. Since it is tape rather than paint, you can carefully lift up tape to readjust it.

You can choose to alternate different colors of the tape or paint the canvas in a variety of colors before laying down the tape to create the pattern for a one-of-a-kind chevron art.


You're not limited to just using paint and duct tape. To create the chevron pattern, you could also use fabric, magazine pages, ribbon, and other items.

You could even take it one step further by gluing a picture frame to the canvas. If you do, we suggest using 527 Multi-Purpose Glue or E-6000. Remember, those are strong adhesives so be sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start.


Play around with the placement of the frame before adhering it to the canvas since you're not limited to how the photo will be displayed.
