DIY Burlap & Polka Dot Canvas {quote & photo display}


Hey y'all! A couple months ago, I guest posted on Best Day Ever. I shared my Burlap & Polka Dot Canvas ... a cute way to display your favorite quotes and photos. I realized I hadn't yet shared it here on my own blog! So today's post is the tutorial for making your own Burlap & Polka Dot Canvas. Enjoy!





This quote display is super versatile! You can easily switch it up for each season by adding a festive quote.


the how-to




What You Need
10x10 Burlap Canvas {Mine's from Walmart ($8!)}
Circle Foam Pouncer
Acrylic Paint in your choice of color
Clip
Glue Gun
sawtooth hanger, if you want to hang it

The Fun Part
 There are only two steps.
1} Using the foam pouncer size you love the most, daub on your polka dots {use an up-and-down motion}.
2} After it is dry, hot glue your clip to the front of your canvas.
*The End*
Ok, there is a 3rd step. If you want to hang your display, attach a mini sawtooth hanger to the back. I got mine from Target for $1. It looks like this:

This is quite possibly the easiest craft I've ever done. I love displaying quotes in my home. I have pinned SO MANY. You can follow me on Pinterest HERE if you need some inspiration! Free printables are all over!

Want to download my favorite quote? I've created a FREE PRINTABLE of the quote shown in the photo, from President Thomas S. Monson - The Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
