Best Friend Wall Art: Weekend Project

Best friend 1I love to decorate my home for each season. This time of year it's a celebration of L-O-V-E! I used some Queen song lyrics (a song from our wedding) to make a simple, graphic piece of art for our bedroom. Would you like to play along?  

Heart art steps1. You will need: Vinyl letters (I used 3 inch), a large canvas (mine was appx. 4 feet tall) and craft paint. 2. Choose the lyrics you want to spell out and cut out those letters. Experiment with the way you want to group your words. 3. Draw a heart outline with a pencil or marker. Next, adhere your letters to the center of the heart. 4. Paint the outside of the heart first to get a clean edge and cover any pencil lines. (oops… I put my S upside down… oh well!) 5-7. Paint 2-3 coats of paint over your heart. Allow it to dry between each coat. 8. When paint is completely dry peel off the letters to reveal your pretty song lyrics!

  • omg this is so cute! im planning to make this for my friend but i was wondering is vinal lettering is a need? Can i just use regular letter stickers?

  • that we simply seek the Master scluotpr who created all that beauty.Is the New Age movement still hot? It seems to be much less hot since the world decided not to end on 1/1/2000, but then again I’m probably out of the loop. I just remember reading about some of the New Age meccas out in Sedona and I think that’s where Maurice Strong built his gargantuan mecca to himself. Anyhoo, looking forward to your second installment!Maryanne

  • cmeandwatch Posted on @SWEETloveer01 this is not a Hindu wedding realdrgess of what you say a Hindu wedding is when we take 7 rounds around the sacred fire which promised 7 things also promises the next 7 lives together we dont take vows by telling we take our vows by the 7 promises in a Sikh wedding they take 4 rounds bt instead of a sacred fire there is the Guru Granth Sahib ..this is based on a Christian wedding not Hindu wedding

  • This may be a stupid question, but where can one find Vinyl letters? I want to make this as a mothers day gift for my mom but I don’t where to find the letters. Could they be found in a craft store, Walmart, or even a fabric store?

    Nice concept and cute puppy 🙂

  • Is a puppy allowed to be that cute? Isn’t there some sort of law against it? I made one of your projects for the first time last night and, although not looking as professional as yours, I was really pleased with the result. I’ll be posting a photo later tonight so you can check it out!

    It was part of a craft night a friend held and I’m hosting the next one; I wondered if you had any ideas for glass/ ceramic painting? Rx
