{P.S. I love you} Canvas Love Note Board

I decided a few weeks ago when I was at Walmart that it would be fun to try doing a craft with canvas. I have never worked with it before so I wanted to give it a try. I found many different sizes of canvases, but decided on the smallest they had which is an 8"x10".  I came up with making a board that my hubby and I could leave little loves notes on for each other.

Of course when I bought it, the canvas was white. Totally BORING!!

I had to give it life with some color. Since its going in my bedroom I decided on yellow. I am accenting in that color. I bought Krylon Bright Idea yellow and spray painted it. It did 3 coats. It was so easy to paint. It dried really quick! (I am liking this canvas thing already!)
I love the shade of yellow!

Next, I got on my cricut and cut out the words, "p,s, i love you" in brown vinyl. I used the font His Name is Honey (the name goes perfect with the love note board and I didn't do it for that reason. I just loved how it looked in this font!) found HERE. I then put it on the bottom of the canvas. It was a little hard to get it to stick because the canvas is fabric and now had a slippery coat of paint on it. I got it to go on though after some hard work!

Next, I made some felt and fabric flowers to put on it. The tutorials for making them can be found HERE. I then hot glued them to the canvas.

In my stocking this past year I got some medium clothespins. I hot glued one of those on to hold our love notes on the canvas.
{My hubby works graveyards and I finished this up just as he was heading out the door to work}

Here is the full picture of it:

I love how it turned out!! My hubby loved it too. Now, I just hope I am not the only one that is going to use it:)
