Monogram Canvas


I made this cute and super easy monogrammed canvas for my parent's living room mantel. It was such an easy project - I baked a cake while doing it!

Supplies needed:

Canvas
paint ( i used spray paint and acrylic paint)
Chipboard letters
scrapbook paper
Decoupage/glue

First I painted the canvas a solid color (I used Rust-oleum American Accents Soft Wheat). I then dry brushed some metallic gold once the spray paint dried. While the canvas was drying I decoupaged the chipboard letters with scrapbook paper. I let everything sit for about and hour - to make sure everything was good and set. Then I used my trusty gorilla glue to attach the letters to the canvas. You can't tell in the picture but I also stapled some ribbon to the back to make a hanger.


Hope you enjoy!

p.s. I'll be linking this project up to all of my favorite linky parties!
