Star Wars Wall Art DIY

Star Wars Wall ArtHi everyone!  Katie here, from Addicted 2 DIY.  Today I’m so excited to share with you my latest project for my 5 year old’s bedroom.  He’s been begging me to decorate his room forever, but kept changing his mind on an actual theme.  He finally settled on Star Wars, so I’ve been busy working away and giving his room a little personality.  His walls were so bare, so I knew I wanted to figure out something to hang on them.  I thought some fun signs made of canvas and vinyl would be perfect!

Here’s what I used for this project:

  • 4 – 16×20″ canvases (I got a 5 pack on sale at Michael’s for $10)
  • Americana Multi-Surface paint in Black Tie
  • Americana Multi-Surface paint in Coffee Bean
  • Americana Acrylic Paint in Houser Light Green
  • Americana Acrylic Paint in True Blue
  • 2 – 12×24″ sheets white vinyl
  • 1 – 12×24″ sheet signal yellow vinyl
  • 1 12×24″ sheet nut brown vinyl
  • Vinyl transfer paper
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • 1″ foam paint brushes

I started by painting the canvases one at a time.  While that particular color would dry, I would cut out the saying or quote for that canvas.

I cut out my vinyl design and used the transfer paper to lift it off of the cutting mat.  I peeled off the backing on each of the vinyl pieces and carefully centered the design on the painted canvas.  I’ve attached the SVG files that I created at the bottom of this post.

To seal in the vinyl, I painted on a coat of Mod Podge in matte.  This prevents any peeling of the vinyl over time.  I repeated these same steps with the other three canvases.

I hung all of the pictures on the wall with Command picture hanging strips.  No holes in the wall to fill makes me a happy mom!

 Aren’t they so fun?  The R2D2 canvas was sort of a last minute idea that popped into my head when I was creating the other SVG designs.  He’s one of my son’s favorite characters, so I was happy that I was able to incorporate him into the room.  They go great over the Star Wars Stenciled Storage Boxes that I made him this week too!  Also, be sure to check out the Star Wars Upcycled Toy Box on the other side of his room.

Here are the SVG files I created for you to download:
