DIY Bird on a Wire Art made from Repurposed Canvases

Hi all you do-it-yourselfer’s, Janeane again from Janeane Pittman Interior Design.

I made this super cute project from canvases found at Goodwill of Orange County.  It is the perfect way to add a little whimsy into your home all while using recycled items and helping to create jobs for people in your community facing barriers to employment.

Here are the steps to make this DIY Bird on a Wire Art:


  • Two unframed art canvases from Goodwill
  • Decoupage medium
  • Three pieces of scrapbook paper with script
  • Charcoal acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint


  • Pencil
