With the start of the new year I have been on a bit of a DIY kick. There are lots of things on our list and we are slowly crossing them off. I also seem to have added a few as well, darn it Pinterest!
I shared our table makeover for Molly, which she continues to absolutely LOVE. But we also did another small project to add a little more fun to Molly's playroom.
I found my inspiration on Pinterest (I have no original ideas. ha!) and then got to work.
I decided I wanted to spell out the word PLAY to put above her toy area and really add a fun way to dictate what this space is for.
Step 1: Purchase canvas. In my case I wanted 12 x 12 square canvas. You can find them at your local hobby store or order them online at Amazon. I bought a 4-pack at Michaels.
Step 2: Create print outs for your letters so you can trace them onto your canvas. I used PrinterProjects.com
Step 3: Print out your chosen letters, cut them out and trace them onto your canvas.
Step 4: Pick out your paint colors. I used paints I already had on hand from a previous project. The best paint is basic acrylic paint you can find at Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart etc.
Step 5: Paint away! Make sure to stay inside the lines. : )
The entire process took me (and my Mom) about 10 minutes. Easy and turned out so cute!
The finished product. Voila!
Total cost for this project was around $10. I had most of the supplies and I used a 40% off coupon at Michaels for the canvas.
Not too shabby.
