I used an old canvas we had laying around here...I pick them up a garage sales all the time, and was really pleased to have a use for it! We have a wonderful local store called the Mangy Moose. They carry just about everything...including crafting and scrapbook supplies. I was looking for wooded letters, but they only had really thick cardboard so I thought Id give it a try.
First I sorted through the letters and layed out what I wanted it to say. Then with a yard stick I drew lines across the canvas with a pencil in order to make sure my finished product would be even! I placed the letters in the correct order and spacing. When I was satisfied with the placement I glued them with Modge Podge onto the canvas. I then spray painted it a pretty cream. I don't think I need a second coat!
All in all this was under $10 and will be a simple addition to my bedroom!
