Kitchen Canvas Tutorial

Lip Color
Inspired by a few different things I saw on Pinterest, this canvas is extremely simple to make and completely customizable! I was going for something to put in the kitchen, that was neutral and simple! 
1 Canvas, whatever size you want! I used 15 x 15
Wooden or cardboard letters from a craft store. (mine are from Michaels and cost $0.39 cents each
Hot glue gun
Spray paint
1. Assemble the letters on the canvas where you think you would like them. Move things around a bit, try new areas. (*NOTE-remember which words you picked out at the store. I completely forgot and had a leftover “s,t,l”. I still have no idea what I was trying to spell)
2. Once you decide on a final location, glue them down. A little hot glue goes a long way! 
3. Once completely set, take to a safe place to spray paint! Make sure you get it from all angles!
4. Let dry and enjoy!
Other ideas: You could write a little story for a baby room “Once upon a time there was a little girl and her name was. . .” and hang it above her bed. You could make smaller canvases with words like “love, peace, happiness” and prop them up on a table, you could put crafty words on there “create, color, texture, pattern” and hang it in a craft room…! The possibilities are endless!
What words would you use?

Love this!! I emailed several friends asking them to describe me in one word. I wanted to put it into an art form but wasn’t sure exactly how/what. This has really inspired me, Thanks!!

On another post you mentioned that you wanted to find a different print for the easel (in your entry way I believe). Maybe you could do another canvas project using the colors you want to accent and place it on the easel?

Just came across this post and was inspired by the same thing! That Pinterest…sure is cool! It’s a perfect idea for me. One of my sons is an artist and has tons of canvases sitting around that he may or may not use. So mom snagged a few and am on the hunt for the right inspirational words. I may even do this on some of the smaller canvases for holiday gifts for friends and family.
