Wood Monogram Canvas Art

Sometimes it is the simplest of projects that make the biggest impact.  Often times when you are creating a gallery wall or have areas in a child’s room to decorate you are stumped with what to put on the wall.  Yesterday, I showed you how to make some meaningful and custom name art that would be great in your child’s room.  This project adds a wood monogram to the mix but also covers a little more area by gluing it to the fabric covered canvas and it is super easy to make.

Supplies:

Wood letter (you can get it at any craft store)

Canvas

Hot Glue

Paint

Staple Gun

Fabric

Wood Stain pen (optional)

Sanding sponge or sandpaper (optional)

1.  We took some black and cream ticking fabric and stapled it to the back of a canvas.  I also stapled all four sides first and then worked on the corners.  Cut away any excess.

2.  Paint your letter the color of your choice.  We also sanded the edges a bit and then highlighted the edges with a stain pen.

3.  When all dry, hot glue the letter to the fabric canvas.

Quick and simple.  I really love the bright aqua paint with the subtle black and white ticking fabric.
