DIY: fun state canvas art



If you’re looking for fun ways to decorate your dorm room or just room at home, look no further because I found the perfect project. A canvas with your state on it is the perfect way to showcase a little bit of home to help you not feel as homesick. The best part is: this DIY project is so easy and practically self explanatory.

You’ll need:

  • paint
  • a plain white canvas
  • a brush

If you’re looking for some inexpensive paint both Target and Michael’s sells very inexpensive paint for only 59 cents!


Next all you need to do is google a picture of the outline of your state and pick the one you like! For example I just typed “State of Missouri outline” on Google and printed out one of the first few images!


After that I just cut out my outline and placed it where I liked it on my canvas. After outlining my state in pencil all I had to do next is paint!

Hope this helps!

p.s. don’t forget to paint the little heart for where your city is! I think it adds a nice personal touch (:
