A couple of weeks ago I re-painted my son’s room and a few pieces of his furniture. His room is getting a long overdue makeover.
When we put everything back in his room after painting and purging some of his stuff, it became clear that I would need to make some new artwork for his walls. And, as always, I wanted something inexpensive. That meant that I would be making things myself. Of course, after all that painting I wanted something quick and easy.
Hello Sharpie markers and a burlap canvas! It was so easy to make a monogram with a Sharpie pen:
I bought my burlap canvas and wooden letter at Michaels and everything else I already had at home. The canvases came in a 3-pack for about $20 (and I used a coupon so it they were about $12 for 3) and the letter was about a dollar so the cost for my Sharpie monogram art project was around $5 — love that!
- burlap canvas
- wooden letter
- sharpie markers
- empty frame
- Trace letter with a pencil
- Trace pencil lines with a Sharpie marker (I used two colors to give the letter more depth and dimension)
How easy is that, right?!
I love how the burlap adds a little rustic texture to his room and I think it will look great in a grouping or collage. I think it even looks good just leaning against the wall while waiting for its new home.
His room isn’t quite finished yet but we are getting there. When I’m done I will do a full reveal on my blog, Lilacs & Longhorns.
