DIY Project :: White Quote Canvas

If you have even been near Pinterest over the past few months, you’ve seen the many pictures of the white canvas with letters spelling out favorite quotes.  They are modern, beautiful, crisp and clean.  Of course, I just had to try my hand at this project for my 10 year renewal.

So, I assembled my supplies — which honestly were easy to find at an online craft store!  I did buy the canvases on super sale at Michaels — I bought a pack of 8 and had a 40% off coupon too.  Here is what you will need: any size canvas, wooden letters, spray adhesive and matte white spray paint.  Some notes on the supplies…you can find wooden letters at Michael’s or AC Moore, but I had more luck finding smaller sizes, in larger assortments online at (Darice is a good brand to use.).

First step is to lay out your quote on the canvas.  I played with different ideas – justifying left or right, stepping down in a pattern and spreading across the whole canvas.  Once I was happy with the layout, I would take each letter off, one at a time, spray the back with glue and put it back in the same spot.  This was the best way to keep them all in the same order and correctly spaced.  Let dry for about a half hour to an hour.

Once the glue dried, I sprayed the canvas with the matte white spray paint.  I did light even coats and them dry about an hour between each coat.  Honestly, I could have primed the wooden letters and probably wouldn’t have had to do some many coats of spray paint, but in the end it worked out fine.  When you are happy with the look, you are done!!

I used these canvases all over the wedding…at the guest book and welcome area, on our timeline wall, in many photos and now, best of all, they are hanging in my home!  A perfect way to remember another perfect day!
