Do you remember that I am doing a master bedroom redo? I've got the big stuff done, like painting, choosing bedding, etc. What I have problems with is decorating and staging. I can see what I want it to look like in my head, but I have a difficult time pulling things together to make it perfect.
So, until I get that finished, I am showing you projects I've done for the bedroom a little at a time. I showed you my Striped Canvas Wall Art before, and today I'm sharing what I put on the other side of the window. This is my Special Date Stenciled Canvas.
I used our wedding date, so now my husband always knows when it is and how many years it has been!
He also thinks it looks military-ish with the stencil, but I like it. I think I should've made the numbers even bigger!
This is really a piece that catches your eye, and is simple to make. Craft stores sell flat canvas blanks in the art department. This canvas is 18x24 and came in a two-pack for $11.99. With my 40% off coupon, this was very frugal!
Paint the canvas in your choice of color. Once it is completely dry, simply cut, weed, and apply vinyl numbers as desired. I used the "Stencil" font in Silhouette Studio, and after cutting them out O just centered my numbers on the canvas.
If you're having trouble applying vinyl to your canvas, you can try applying a coat of clear Mod Podge over the paint to give it something more to adhere to. I didn't have a problem, but I know sometimes it happens.
This looks lovely over our dresser. Now, to get going on the rest of the details.....
