D.I.Y. Missoni Inspired Chevron Canvas

Hey everyone,
So lately I’ve found that I tend to really change my mind when it comes to home decor; and we all know that it isn’t affordable when it happens often. So I started to look into ways that I could change the look of a room, without having to spend hundreds of dollars.

I’ve really started to fall in love with pretty DIY canvas’ that are cheap and easy to do, while still looking chic and effortless. This lead me to spark up the idea to use a brand like Missoni, take their iconic chevron print, and turn it into artwork. This DIY is super simplistic and has so many colour and size options, you could make as many as your little heart desires.

All you will need is:

A canvas – Size is dependant upon preference
Felt tip markers or paint – Also based on preference
Ruler

First,  choose the colour you will be using.
Next, measure out the size of the chevron you will be drawing. I chose to make mine 1-1/2 inches on each side.

Once you draw the first triangle, fill out the rest of the canvas with the same size triangles across the top.
Next, draw a line beneath mimicking the print above. This shape will be filling out your white space.

Continue the same pattern throughout the canvas until there is no longer any space left.
Try and maintain each row as the same size, if they are slightly off, it’s okay!

And voila! The finished product.
Such a classic and sophisticated print, perfect for any room!
