I made this canvas using large hardware-store stickers and painting the canvas both under and over the letters. Once the letters were dry, I peeled off the stickers and revealed the quote I had created. This is super easy to make, and once you make one, you'll want one for every room and every quote you like! I went a little crooked with some of my letters, but I think that adds to the homemade-ness of the canvas. I used red and yellow paints and sanded over the finished canvas with a sanding block. Sorry, the only shot I had came out in black and white.

I got this idea from one I saw on Pinterest!
