Pinterest-inspired: my crack at a chipboard canvas
Jane @ urbanejane.4:44 PM 22 comments

I hope you had a great weekend. My hubby got really sick (and really sucky, which I've realized is one of his symptoms), so I was a bit busy squeezing lemons for tea, sifting through our medicine cabinet for un-expired drugs, and keeping my distance lest he makes this preggo sick a week away from pushing. 

Seeing as it's been a bit crazy, I thought I'd share a super easy craft that anyone on Pinterest has seen probably a gazillion times. 
Well, I thought I'd take a turn. :)

I found this awesome deal in the Michaels clearance section (that tiny canvas was seriously $28?!)

I used the puffy letter stickers & cardboard letters saved from my wedding seating chart (which seems like ages ago).

I know I wanted a bible verse, so I picked one of my favourites, and placed the letters down.

Once it was to my liking, I got my tacky glue & secured them (they lost a bit of their stick from moving them around).

Then I gave the whole thing two good coats of white spray glossay.
This is what it looked like:

It only cost me the price of the canvas ($2.50)! 

Always a good reminder. :)

  15. I usually pass over the glittery chip letters but now I will use them for more projects. Not sure why I never thought to paint them. Paint can do anything!
