DIY Inexpensive Wall Art

Hi Hi!!! You will all be happy to know that I was PASSED OUT by 9:30 last night and slept until 6! WHEW!! I really needed that sleep. I didn't even wake up in the middle of the night which is UNHEARD of for me! =) Thanks for the suggestions on how to go to sleep -- my favorite was a little wine ;)

Alright, so I wanted to share a quick, easy and inexpensive project that I had seen some where on a random site.  I tucked the idea back in my mind and then I saw it going crazy on Pinterest.

3-Dimensional Canvas Art
You will need:
4 Square Canvases
Sponge Brush or some sort of paint brush
Paint Color of your chosing
Wood Letters
Tacky Glue (or some other Adhesive)

{Ready, Set, CRAFT}
-Decide what your canvas will say; Mine will be Faith, Hope, Family, Love
-I painted the canvas first and then glued the letters onto the canvas. In hindsight, it may have made more sense to glue the letters and THEN paint everything but oh well =)
 
 
-Once the glue dried, I painted over all the letters again and gave the canvas one more coat.
-Repeat 3 more times
-Viola! And done!

Super easy and not an expensive OR time consuming project =) I haven't hung it because I am waiting to move into our new home. We still haven't heard anything back but tomorrow will mark 2 weeks that the mortgage company has had our paperwork so I'll start getting annoying next week ;)

Alright-y people -- today is my Friday as far as work is concerned! I will definitely be sharing all sorts of pictures next week from the rehearsal and then the wedding!!! EEK! I can't believe my baby sister is getting married! I am so excited for her and Douggles!
