Embroidered Canvas Art

by - April 12, 2021

I was looking online for a simple art piece to place in my dining room. I wanted something minimal and boho when I got the idea to DIY my own wall decor piece instead. I took inspiration from my previous botanical wall art design I made over a month ago. Expect this time, I added embroidery to add a different touch. I used a simple stitch to embroider my design. Now, let me show you how I did.


  • Embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • Canvas
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Pencil or a printed photo of choice


1.) I started off by painting 3 different-sized blobs using different colored paint.

2.) Once the paint dried, I sketched my design. (You can use a printed photo if you don't want to draw.)

3.) If you printed a photo, trace the design by poking holes with the embroidery needle. Try your best to keep the holes equally apart. (If you choose to draw instead, you can skip this step.)

5.) The last step was to embroider the canvas using the running stitch.
