I don't know about you but I love all the new "Word Art" canvases that are popping up everywhere. What I don't like is the prices, I found one with a cute "grandma's house" saying that I loved for $35! YIKES!! I knew I could make it much, much cheaper and in the colors/ designs that were perfect. What do you know, using stuff I had around the house (Less than $5 if you were to buy everything) I created a canvas word art that worked out perfectly.
Check out the step-by-step and make one yourself!
(Finally a fun and easy way to display all those fun quotes you see!)
|I started out with a blank 5x7 canvas in a nasty green that I got on the cheap sometime|
(color doesn't matter because it will all be covered)
|Apply a layer of Mod Podge all over the canvas|
|Add scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, any type of paper in a pattern you like to the front and once again Mod Podge the whole thing, Now let it completely dry (overnight is best if you can stand the wait)|
|Now create your saying with vinyl stickers or a paper cutting tool and adhesive vinyl, Once again the color doesn't matter as this will be covered|
(I used my cricut with the gypsy...if you need help with this shoot me an email!)
|Now carefully stick your saying on your dry mod podged papered canvas|
|Next Spray paint the entire canvas (sides, top, over the lettering, the whole thing) |
then let the whole thing completely dry (again?!?! sigh!)
*I used hammered brown spray paint*
|Now carefully peel up the vinyl (your paper will show thru underneath)|
Fun (cheap) word art!
