This week for Made it Monday I did my own little version of the Red Letter Words signs. If you haven't seen this business before you should check them out. I love what they are doing.
I just didn't have it in my budget this month to order one. My little version cost me about $5. I used a 40% coupon from Hobby Lobby and picked up a 14" x 18" stretched canvas.
First thing is to spray paint the whole canvas which ever color you want. I had some left over Red that I thought would look great for Christmas.
Next I used the computer and made my project 14" x 18" and typed out the verse just the way I wanted it on my finished project.
Print out the words and cut them out.
Then the time consuming process of tracing your letters onto the canvas with a pencil.
Then I used puff paint since it has that nice tip to color in the letters.
This part only took about 30 minutes.
Let Dry and Hang. I love the way it turned out. I actually may do this again sometime. The only change I would make is to use painter's tape to keep the words in line.
