For Women’s History Month, how about a fun craft that can spruce up your living space and inspire you every day? We like “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” said by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a Harvard professor. But you can find just about any quote you like for this easy canvas painting craft!
Quote Canvas Art
- Plain stretched canvas of a size you like
- Two acrylic paint colors (one will be the background, the other will be the writing)
- One good paintbrush, about a ½” size
- Vinyl lettering you can have custom-made from Amazon or Etsy
First, paint the canvas the color you’d like the words to be. Give it a nice thick coat, or maybe two. Allow to fully dry for four hours.
Once the canvas is dry, apply the vinyl letters right on top of the paint. Press very firmly and seal the edges down for each letter. Then, coat the whole canvas in a light layer of paint – your background color.
Allow the paint to again dry completely. Now, carefully remove each vinyl letter – perhaps using a straight pin to help find the edge of each letter.
If you’d like the canvas to look distressed, you can lightly rub the whole thing with fine-grit sandpaper.
And now you have some fun art to hang up on your wall!
For a not-as-crafty approach, you can also adhere the vinyl letters straight onto the wall. It depends on your style and what you like.
If you’ve got some downtime during March, peruse some sites or articles detailing the accomplishments of women throughout history, or quotes by women who changed the world. It’s refreshing and hopeful, something we all need more of!
