Hi friends! If you’re following my posts on Instagram, you’ll notice that for many weeks now, I’ve joined 15 blogger friends of mine on hosting a fall-related decorating challenge under the Hashtag #Homeforthefallidays. There’s a new theme each week. Since this week’s theme is “Thanksgiving craft,” eight of us hosting decided to post our DIY project on our blogs as well.
Here’s the “Thankful Everyday” canvas wall art that I created for this week’s theme.
Gather Your Supplies (All items can be purchased in your local Arts & Crafts store.)
1) Black canvas 2) Twine 3) Pencil 4) White Permanent Chalk Pen 5) Gold Permanent Marker 6) Glue Gun
Form your twine for your pendant. Use glue gun to affix twine onto canvas.
How it should look 🙂
Use your gold marker to draw “pendant” shapes. After pendants are done, begin writing quote with PENCIL. I did the writing free hand so it’s always a good chance that mistakes will happen. This is why writing lightly in pencil first is recommended.
TIP: Use a ruler below each line you write. This will keep your letters from going crooked. 😉
Use your white permanent marker to write over your earlier writing. Gently erase any marks left by pencil in earlier step.
Fill in the letters so that each word can be read easily. This takes a little extra care but it’s well worth it!
This project was SIMPLE right? I love how this canvas looks on my foyer wall.
It’ll also go well with this “Give Thanks” display that I will be featuring this Thursday. Here’s a sneak peek:
