It has been awhile since I have posted as I have been a bit under the weather. I can’t say that I am back, but I am trying to, slowly, to post here and there. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Today I will be sharing a DIY Love Wall Art.
I originally posted this one as a guest post over at Play. Party. Pin. last month. I will be posting there this month and in May as well! So go check out Britni at Play. Party. Pin. and stay tuned for those posts (I’ll remind you anyway so don’t worry)!!
But let’s get on with the project…
DIY Love Wall Art Design
The idea is that you can create your own using your own fabrics, paints, letters/words, etc. I happened to use this fabric because it matched the Hamper that I made over a few months ago.
And the colors tie into my design scheme.
You will want to scope out your empty wall space, decide on the word you would like to hang and buy the supplies accordingly.
You will need the following (as shown above):
- Fabric of choice (you can use scrapbook paper or paint)
- Paint (for the letters)
- Paint brush, scissors, staple gun, staples
- Mod Podge
- Hammer (not shown and it is just to nail in staples if they don’t go in quite all the way when stapled)
So let’s get started!!
Paint your letters first so they have time to dry!
Then cut your fabric to cover the canvas.
Once you have the first one cut, you can just lay it on top of fabric to cut the multiple pieces needed.
Next you will want to staple the fabric to the canvas.
Notice that I stapled the corners after folding them as I would when wrapping a gift.
After you have the fabric on all of your canvases, cut your ribbon and staple.
I did use two different sized ribbons so that the canvases were hung in a pattern.
All that is now left to do is to glue the letters to the fabric covered canvases.
And there you have it!! The final Design!
While this may not be a new idea, I hope that it provides you some new inspiration or motivates you to either fill a wall space or create a new wall design!
