DIY Superhero Canvas

I don't have a son, but I do have a husband that loves his superheroes. So, for this Christmas I decided to lend some decoration to his computer area. I was looking to purchase some nice prints but after seeing how much money they cost I realized that I could make them myself. Not only did I save a ton of $$ I had fun making these and I would much rather give a hand made gift!


For the Superman I found a t-shirt at Walmart for $7.50
The Marvel comic pages were from Jo-Ann, since I needed so little 14" but when you get it off the spool it's 47" long, so I was able to cut enough fabric to cover two 10" canvases. This cost me $1.94 after using a 50% off coupon!
Canvases- I used a 12" for the superman and two 10" for the marvel. Obvioulsy you can use whatever sizes you want!
Staple gun
Hardware for hanging on the wall (optional) you could always use an easel for display!

Stretch your fabric over the canvas and staple away. Just be careful with the corners! I cut mine like I'm wrapping a present so your corners are nice and neat!

That's it!
A super fast- personalized project for any occasion!
