Big shout out to my Sister and Mom for helping create a customized piece of art for above Munchkin #2’s crib. I wanted something with a monogram above her crib, but the options online were so expensive. DIY to the rescue!
I had a projector on hand, which made this project a lot easier. I bought a plain canvas at Hobby Lobby (side- don’t forget to download their app. It has a 40% off a regular priced item on it. Much easier than keeping up with clipping coupons.) Then we found the letters we liked online and simply traced them to the board.
I highly recommend using a pencil to plan out your work. Tracing the letters isn’t hard, but spacing them out took some doing. Plus we found we had to add a few curly q’s here and there to fill out the space.
I didn’t get too fancy with the border or background because I didn’t want to take away from the lettering.
Here is the final project!
I like working with this canvas board because it is very light. Should something happen where it falls off the wall or the baby somehow hits it into her crib – it isn’t going to cause any big damage.
