Do you want to create your own LED lighted canvas art? I found this art piece on clearance for $5 and I added $1 lights to enhance the art.

Instructions for your ED Lighted Canvas Art
Here is the sign I found for $5 on clearance at Walmart. I just couldn’t leave it there at that price and it was just in time for Thanksgiving!
1. measure out where you want the light strand to go on your artwork.
I started by stretching the lights out around the top of the picture so I would know where I would want the holes to be.
2. Poke holes in your canvas art
I then used a punch to poke the holes through the canvas where the lights would come through.
3. Push the LED lights into the holes.
I then pushed the lights through the holes on the backside of the art. I used a strand of 10 LED lights from Dollar Tree and you could get a strand that had more lights. This piece also had a piece of wood in the middle of the back so be careful to work around that.
I taped the battery pack in place with some gaffers tape. You could alternatively use hot glue to hold it into place.
4. Hang your led lighted canvas art
Turn the lights on and it’s ready to hang.

I like this idea!
Thank you so much Calleen 🙂
I love all the lighted canvas projects that you do! You home must really look gorgeous. 🙂
You are so sweet Linda – thank you. I just love the lights and they cheer me up when the weather gets cold 🙂
I just want to ask you…i bought 3 strands of those lights at the Dollar Tree and i couldnt get the screw out of the covers on all 3 of them to put batteries in! Did you have a problem???
Hi Victoria, Oh no, that’s terrible. I’m so sorry to hear that. I was lucky and did get mine out okay. Maybe take them back to the store and tell them and they’ll let you trade them out?
This is a awesome idea and something I could accomplish. Found you on Blogger’s Pit Stop Link Party
Thank you so much Candy, I just thought the sign needed a little extra love and who doesn’t love more lights 🙂
