Somebody I know has fallen in love with letters and he "has" all of them, just ask him. I will give you three hints as to who he is:
1) He is cute,
2) He likes cars,
3) He is cute.
|What grandmother wouldn't come up with an excuse to post a picture of their grandchild sleeping?|
But, I've been feeling, well, lazy. So instead I decided to make a wall hanging for our little letter savant.
|Choose a fabric that you have plenty of AND one that will be easy to center.|
You can always buy one at Michael's or a craft store. Simple, Simple, Simple. This one was already wired and ready to hang!
Now, spread the fabric over the canvas evenly. If you are using a canvas that is not blank make sure you have picked a dark enough fabric so that whatever is on the canvas does not show through. Also, it is very important that the fabric is very well ironed before you start. Once I centered the fabric, I made sure to stretch it nice and tight over the canvas, Not Too tight or you might make the print on the fabric look wonky, but firm. Once you have it in place anchor it at the top with a staple gun. Now, staple all around the frame. Make sure to keep the fabric centered where you want it.
Edges should be tucked in and folded nice and clean and then stapled in place. I left the excess fabric on because I still might want to make a romper out of this fabric once I get tired of seeing it hang on the wall, or once Danny realizes that EVERYONE "has" those letters. You would do well to trim the excess fabric first, it made it a little more difficult for me to hang up the finished product.
And you are finished. Now Danny can find "his" letters whenever he needs them!
Thanks for reading. If you make your own wall hanging please share pictures!
