I put together this decorative canvas to hide a rusted fan cover that's mounted onto the brick wall beside my deck today.
My mother was visiting and told me about a botanical garden she toured and that these words were on a plaque, and I thought they were lovely.
Disclaimer: I should have written Buddah instead of God since I'm more of a Buddhist, but I was on auto pilot today and my Catholic upbringing is ingrained in my soul.
Here it is hung over the fan cover with the recent addition of a butterfly made out of feathers.
I'm placing a very simple tutorial behind the cut.
|I used plastic corrugated board because this is going to get rained on. I used my dad's rusty metal thingum to make sure everything was square, and cut it with a box cutter.|
|I sprayed the board with adhesive.|
|I placed my ironed cotton fabric over the board and smoothed it down.|
|Then cut our the corners as shown.|
|Then I sprayed more adhesive and folded the edges over and smoothed them out.|
|I bought adhesive letters in the dollar store, but you can used stencils. Whatever photos are sideways here are that way because I forgot to rotate them before uploading and...I'm too lazy to fix them.|
|I stuck down the letters for my message and traced them out with a fine point gel pen.|
|The text was then filled in with a Sharpie because I don't have a steady enough hand to paint. I did a test to see if the ink would run when it gets wet - it didn't run, fyi.|
|All the flowers, greenery, and other supplies came from where? If you know me, you answered the dollar store, and you were right. For the hydrangea, I cut a styrofoam ball in half, then used a glue gun to affix the flowers on one by one .|
