How to make a DIY canvas for your artwork

01-Jun-2017
If you love to get crafty, consider creating your very own canvas using a TUPPLUR roller blind (you might even have an extra at home). It’s super simple and works just as well as a store-bought canvas.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
8 pieces of lumber (dimensions according to the size frame you want)
Hammer and nails
Heavy duty staple gun
TUPPLUR blackout roller blind
1. First create a simple wooden frame, making sure to reinforce the corners with smaller pieces.
2. Roll out your TUPPLUR blind and place the wooden frame on top. Cut the blind so that it is about 10 cm larger than the frame on all sides.
3. Fold the blind around the frame, pull tightly, and staple in place.
