It has been a long time I would like to have a monogram decor for our home. As usual I went to Pinterest to find inspirations of course! 😀 So, I had a canvas art that I got from a local craft store and I painted it with white acrylic paint couple months ago. It was just sitting on my craft supply basket and waiting. And then this morning after teaching my youngest daughter letter “A”, I decided to do the monogram canvas project.
To make this monogram canvas (repurpose the old canvas) is very easy.
I wanted to have the black and white strips background. First, I added painter tape on the canvas to cover the space where I wanted to stay white and then painted the uncover areas with black acrylic paint using small size foam brush.
Let the paint dry for 1-2 hours before the second coating, if you need to. But I only did one coat and it looked good.
While waiting for the paint to dry, I grab my wooden letter and fabric flowers I got from Target. I love Target store even more because they have the craft supply section now! One more reason to go to Target when we go to the city 🙂
You can use hot glue gun to add the fabric flowers to the wooden letter. But I used Gorilla Wood Glue to add the fabric flowers on the letter, just to make sure they are glued strongly.
After about 2 hours, I checked my canvas and felt it had dried well, I added the decorated wooden letter to the canvas using the same wood glue. And from the instruction on the bottle, it has to dry at least 24 hours or overnight.
I love the finished project! And this monogram canvas will go up on our fire place.
This is a quick and easy way to repurpose an art canvas that you do not like the picture or a canvas you find cheap at flea market or antique store.
