My kids LOVE to craft. They love to paint. And they love to make a mess! At eight and three years old, it is rather difficult though to find a craft that is easy and enjoyable for both of my girls. And let’s be honest… it is especially difficult to find one that is feature worthy. I mean, I love to showcase their art in the playroom and on our back door but a full vignette feature? That’s another story.

I also have a slight obsession with all of my new quote artwork in our home so I decided to merge the two ideas. The project was super easy and my girls had a blast! Now I can’t wait for them to get home from school and see their own artwork front and center on their dresser and nightstand. Accessorized with some fun artwork and accessories from HomeGoods, they look adorable! So here’s a look at our “Swoon Worthy Kid Craft”!
12″ x 16″ Canvas (this is the size I used)
Mark lines in pencil for the desired letter placement.
Stick letters onto the canvas and press down firmly on every side.
Paint! This is the very best part of this project… perfection isn’t necessary. Just let them GO AT IT!
Remove the letters!
The Pinterest Fail Truth!
I LOVE to be honest so here are several things I learned upon starting this project..
1.Paper MAY work better than canvas at preventing the paint from bleeding underneath the letters. Just guessing.
2. I used double sided tape to secure some edges of the letters that started to pop up.
3. I used White-Out to correct the paint that bled underneath the letters once I removed them. The color matched the canvas perfectly!
