Picnic Blanket Materials

Materials Needed:

  • Canvas drop cloth (preferably plastic-lined)
  • Painters Tape
  • Paint (3 or more colors)
  • Paint Brush + Roller Brush

Directions: Lay out your canvas drop cloth onto a flat surface. If your canvas is lined on the bottom with plastic, you’re ready to go. If not, you’re going to want to double up the canvas to make sure no paint seeps through to your work surface. Next add painter’s tape in diagonal patterns, creating various sized triangles. Use the roller brush (and 1 of your paint colors) to fill in the larger shapes.  For the smaller shapes, use a paint brush and your other paint colors. Let dry, remove tape, and PICNIC!

And if it’s not looking like picnic weather outside, pin the canvas to the wall for an awesome photo booth backdrop! By following the same process you can paint on practically any surface to have a fun geometric pattern wherever you please!
