How To: Line Art Embroidery Canvas 🎨

If you're a beginner looking to explore the beautiful art of painting and embroidering on canvas, you've come to the right place. Inspired by this TikTok video, this blog post will guide you through the process step by step, ensuring you can create a stunning piece of art by combining painting with embroidery!


Here's a video tutorial you can also watch!


  1. Prepare the Canvas: Begin by painting the corner edges of your canvas. Mitrita chooses red and pink, but let your creativity flow and select colors that resonate with your style.

  2. Attach the Line Art Image: Once the paint is dry, use scotch tape to attach your chosen picture to the center of the canvas. This will serve as a guide for your embroidery.

  3. Create Holes for Embroidery: With the picture in place, start making holes along the outline of the image. Keep the holes close enough so the lines remain straight and consistent.

  4. Embroider Your Design: Now, it's time for the embroidery part. Thread your needle and start following the pattern you've created with the holes. This process requires patience as it can take several hours, but the result is worth it. Continue embroidering until your design is complete. You might find this process time-consuming (Mitrita took about 4-5 hours), but it's so worth it!

  5. Final Touches: Paint the hat, lips and / or anything else you'd like to fill in with color!

  6. Admire Your Work: Once you're done, step back and admire your creation. You've just combined painting and embroidery to create a unique piece of art! Share it and tag us! @mysticmakerevents
