I found this tutorial on Pinterest.
Of course, I had to try it myself. But, I wanted to make it a little differently. Give it some character.
So, I decided to dye the canvas. I didn’t know if canvas could be dyed. But, it can! Here is how I got the funky pattern.
Start by pinching the middle of the canvas.
Then twist the canvas in one direction.
It will start to look something like this.
Keep twisting until it’s all twisted into a nice ball. Then wrap with twine or some cord of some sort to hold it all in place.
Then follow the directions of your specific dye package. I used RIT dye.
This was after 5 minutes.
And after 10. I pulled it out after this since it was the dark color I wanted.
I ran water through it to make sure all of the water ran clear. Then I untied it and had a nice wet, wrinkly piece of canvas. But, I was pleased with the pattern.
After I dried and pressed it.
And it was ready to be used.
The finished project!
