Let’s get creative making canvas rugs

Canvas rug crafters, here is your page. After 16 years of painting canvas rugs, the questions started rolling in. Apparently, I had become an expert! Well, I have my own experiences and I’m happy to share them with you and help in any way I can.  And so, I’ve made this page for you.

I’m asking for your email so you can be a part of our creative group. Please send me your questions which I answer in a Q & A each month. I answer every email so if you have any comments I’d love to hear from you.

Below is a list of links to blogs that are focused on how to make canvas rugs.

But please feel free to look through all the blogs on the website for any inspiration you can draw from.

Everyone has their own style and their sources of inspiration. Laurels Originals has focused on painting rugs for interior designers and custom orders for clients so the styles and art vary for each one. I hope these help you learn more and help you on your way to creating something beautiful for your home!

These blogs include videos from my YouTube channel. I’ll be adding more blogs as they go up on the website so you have a special place for blogs dedicated just for you.
