Easy DIY Canvas Board Art Using Song Lyrics

I saw a Pinterest post some time ago of song lyrics written on a large canvas board. I never repinned the image, but I remember telling myself that I would do it one day. I didn’t even click through to the website of the post, because I figured I could get the same look very easily with just a couple of steps.

All you need is a canvas board, black paint (or any other color paint you want), a paintbrush to paint your words on, and an idea of what you want to write on your board.

I already had the canvas board, brush, and paint. I chose to write the words to my favorite song, “For You”, by Kenny Lattimore.

Here’s what I did:

1st Step:

Outline your words on your canvas board with a pencil. This way you’ll easily be able to erase and rewrite any screw-ups, while trying to get the placement of your words right.

1st step: outline your words with pencil.

2nd Step:

After your words are in place with pencil, trace over them with your paintbrush dipped in paint. I went over certain words and letters more than others, and left some words with a brushed, barely there finish. (No particular reason, sometimes I just didn’t feel like going over some spots again.)

3rd Step:

Let dry. Or you can “go above and beyond”, like I did, and pour glitter on some of the words. I chose to put black glitter on every “you” on the board I simply poured the glitter directly on the wet words. Then, I let the whole thing dry.

3rd step: Let dry (or add glitter to some of the words, then dry).

4th Step:

Spray Hi-Gloss Clear spray paint on your board and let dry completely. (no picture, sorry!)

5th Step:

Enjoy!! (I may or may not have “borrowed” someone’s wall, hung up the canvas board, and took the picture. I love the way the white and black pops on the pink.) Most likely I’ll put it in my office when I’m able to work on all the mess…

I love how the black and white pops on the pink wall.

That’s it guys! Super easy, super customizable art. It has a lot of “character” (mistakes), but I figured that’s what DIY’s are all about, right? Or, maybe I was too lazy to fix the mistakes?

This could easily be done in a fancy font with words from a kid’s favorite bedtime story. Maybe you could first paint the board a soft gray color and write the words in cursive in a cute color, like pink, blue, or purple??

Have you done an easy DIY lately? Did you like this one?

Till next time,

XOXO
