Canvas Dropcloth Decorating–Another Idea :)

I am totally loving the canvas painter’s drop cloths. I finished off the scraps from my living room curtains. I went back to Home Depot and bought another one just so I could use it for crafting and decorating. I think I might like it even better than burlap. Shhh, don’t tell. It’s a little easier to work with, and it smells a lot better. 😉

I’ve used it to makeover a lampshade, and to frame my barn star. Totally love the canvas rosettes on my lamp. I decided to make some into magnets for our new fridge. And some into cute push pins for my cork board. They were a tiny bit tricky because they are so small, but I love how they turned out.

Here are my new rosette fridge magnets:

Next up, I’m planning on making some type of canvas pillow. I’ve got so many ideas swirling in my brain that I’m having a hard time deciding. Maybe I’ll have to make two pillows! 🙂



  1. Hi There,
    I’m sure I’m missing a link or something entirely but are there steps somewhere on how to make the rosette magnets? They are adorable, but I’m seriously un-crafty and need all the directions I can get 🙂

    Love the rosettes. Especially the magnets. Our daughter has a magnet board in her room and these would be perfect.
