DIY Love Canvas Project

There's only a few days left before Valentine's Day, but this LOVE Canvas project is quick and easy to make! It's designed to serve as wall art for your home, or make an awesome Valentine's gift for someone special.

Now, let's get crafting!

Created by Billie Jo. from our sister store in Bonney Lake.

Black Fabric (or fabric of your choice)
Wooden Letters to spell out "Love"
Red Acrylic Paint
Clear Rhinestones (optional)
Stapler or Staple Gun

Use the paintbrush to apply paint to the front and side of all the letters. Set the letters aside to dry when done.

Cut and measure the fabric to wrap around the canvas. Use a stapler or staple gun to secure the fabric on the back side of the canvas. Be sure to tighten any loose areas and smooth any ripples in the fabric before stapling.

If you choose to add Rhinestones, wait until the letters are dry to stick the rhinestones in the desired pattern onto each letter.

We are going to glue the letters using E-6000 onto the fabric-covered canvas. Be sure that you are in a well-ventilated area before proceeding to use E-6000. Apply the glue to the back of the letter "L" and firmly press it onto the desired area of the fabric-covered canvas. Repeat this step for the rest of the letters. Let your project lay flat until it is completely dry.
