Here is what you will need if you want to recreate this for yourself:
- 1 can spray adhesive
- 1.5" roll painters tape
- Blank canvas (mine was 20" x 24")
- LOTS of glitter (it took 10 of the pouches seen above)
- 1 can glitter sealant spray
I used an old piece of cardboard to measure & cut out a stencil in the chevron pattern. As I held the stencil in place, my husband took the painters tape and marked off where the stripes would be. Getting the lines perfectly centered & evenly spaced was honestly the hardest part...
Next we headed to the garage to spray adhesive on the canvas & sprinkle on the glitter! I worked one section at a time so the adhesive wouldn't dry out too quickly. Here is what it looked like completely covered (before I shook the excess off):
I let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before turning upside down to release any loose particles. Then, I slowly began to remove the tape...
Once the tape was removed, I carefully brushed off any loose pieces of glitter that had fallen onto the white stripes. Then I sprayed the entire canvas with a coat of sealant.
The sealant takes 20 minutes to dry, but I waited a full 24 hours before moving it into the house & hanging up on the wall. Here is the finished product hanging up in my room:
Close up shot so you can see the texture of the particles on the canvas:
I love how the light from the chandelier reflects off the diamond dust and adds another element of sparkle to the space. Can't wait to show you all part 2 of my closet reveal...coming next week!!
