I found this idea on pinterest a few weeks ago and thought we could do something similar in William's room. Find a quote, glue, paint and voila!
This blogger used old magazines, newspaper, or pages from books. I wanted something that would have a little more meaning. The Dr. Suess book Oh, The Places You'll Go! , has been a family favorite!
This book was given to me by a dear friend when I graduated from high school. I've kept it ever since and read it to both Lauren and William while pregnant and ever since.
Billy and I picked a few favorite pages and had color copies made.
The supplies needed are a canvas size of your choice, acrylic paint, brush, glue, vinyl letters, and mod podge for a finished look.
As much as I love the title, this quote is one of my favorites. I laid the paper out and used hot glue (though elmers would have worked too). Then I placed the vinyl letters in place and painted away, painting over the letters too.
After the paint dried, I removed the letters. They pulled away easily and then applied two coats of mod podge, though I think I might add one more to give it more shine.
Like most of my projects, it was pretty painless.
For less than $20 we've got an original piece of art.
