Thrifty Art DIY: Easy and Fast Robot Stencil Canvas Art


A room isn't complete for me unless it has original artwork displayed within. My bedroom was a soulless void, so I set to work and created a custom piece for it. I looked around the house to gather supplies and completed this artwork for $0.00 in about ten minutes, tops!


I gathered: 1) Canvas my friend Rosaly of Old Skool Junk started painting on during a Drawing/Creativity Night at my house. 2) Robot cut-outs, an impulse purchase from Michael's I regretted buying until this moment. 3) Plain white spray paint, the cheapest Walmart had to offer. ;)


Then I taped the robot cut-outs to the canvas and sprayed a thin layer of the flat white spray paint over them to produce the simple artwork.


I love a quick, simple art piece, and it looks amazing hanging above my bed. I like how you can keep this piece simple or keep adding to it as time goes on. I'll definitely be making more art with my new "stencils"!


What do you have to have in your room to make it feel comfortable and whole? For me it's art! Books and toys a close second... thrifted/vintage things a close third...

    1. I was thinkin' that! I think I'll make a series of these and experiment with resin on them to make them even sexier. :D

  2. Great job and really cool looking! One of the first gifts that the Mister ever gave me when we were dating was a spray paint stenciled art piece that he made.

    1. What a sweet first gift. I'm sure this stenciled art is still hanging proudly in the bedroom? :)

  3. I use spraypaint and stencils on mix cds and I even designed some t-shirts that way. It's a fun and clever way to make cute/cheap art
