FontCrafts Exclusive: I Love Fonts Canvas

love canvas

I wanted to create a modern canvas using fonts. The cool thing is the letters I used probably would be overlooked for not being modern! They’re refrigerator magnets that I got from the toy section at CVS. Here’s how you make this super simple canvas!!

First I laid all the magnets out on the canvas to make sure they fit and scattered properly!

I next spray painted the canvas. It took a couple coats.

Then I gave the letters a few coats. Admittedly, I had to go back in with a brush cause the plastic letters didn’t take to the shiny spray paint as well as I had hoped.

I then used the Tacky Glue to attach the magnets to the canvas. Isn’t this photo cool? The TV was flashing on the canvas :)
