How sweet, right? I definitely could make that, I thought. I love the idea of turning quotes into artwork for your house!!
So I "clicked through" to find the originating site and was linked to Not on the High Street, a handmade goods site similar to Etsy. That's when my mind was blown. This little thing was selling for a whopping 195 pounds!! Pounds!!!? That's $307!!!!! Plus shipping!
So, today's Valentine's Day craft is a DIY version of this overpriced wall art, for 1/10th the cost and all the loveliness! And, you pick your quote!
- Canvas - I purchased a 12"x12" board from A.C. Moore on sale for $10
- Wood Letters - I actually tried a few craft stores before finding the right size and availability of letters (I liked these 1" letters because it reminded me of my handwriting...in all caps)
- Tacky Glue
- Foam Brush
- White Spray Paint
1. Spray paint the front of your letters. (oops - looks like we're going to have a few white rocks, too)
