My roomies and I have decided we wanted to craft for our apartment, because the white walls were driving us crazy. We decided to craft rather than just buy wall decorations, because all the cute ones are expensive, and crafting was surprisingly cheaper. We went to Michaels, bought seven canvas, paint brushes, letters, paint, and glue and it was only $30 dollars compared to one canvas from Target for about $25. Crafting does take a lot of time, but it is totally worth it in the end.
When crafting make sure you have these items..
- Old newspaper
- Paint Brushes
- Letters or stencils
- Pencil (to practice first)
- Paper plates
- Cup with water
Always paint two coats on a canvas depending on how light the color is, usually all colors that aren’t black. Also, go to Pinterest, because Pinterest is amazing and that is where we got all of out ideas. Here are the ones that I made for my room:
