I have an obsession and it's with the letter 'M' because that's the first letter of Peaches McGee's real name (Milla). I have a few that I've purchased, but haven't hung yet, so I decided to get at least one of them up. My first attempt was punching out paper flowers and gluing them on. It was ugly so I decided to try something else!
I had a canvas board that had been sitting in my craft room for a while. I decided to wrap it with fabric and then staple gun it nice and tightly around the canvas. I then painted green dots on the 'M' (after removing the glued flowers) and when it dried, I used regular craft glue and mounted it to the fabric-covered canvas. I liked it enough to hang in her room and she liked it enough to say, "Oooooh, Mommy! Thank you for my pretty decoration!"
|Clearance craft paint (I love a deal!)|
|Back of the canvas with the fabric stapled to it|
|Front of the canvas|
|Dots on my 'M' - I just used a pencil eraser dipped in paint to get the "perfect" dots|
|Project (almost) complete!|
I wasn't 100% satisfied because I realized that all of the other 'M's were hanging, so I took two pieces of ribbon, stapled it to the back of the canvas and tied a bow. Much better!
