Word Canvas Art

Blogger: Sarah Rainwater of Sarah Rainwater Design

Why we love it: Brighten up an industrial chic kitchen -- literally! -- with this new spin on word art all while reminding your family how good your cooking really is.

What you need: Canvas; pencil; clear thumbtacks; and 1 string of clear lights.

How to make it: Sketch the word “yum” on the canvas. Tack the string of lights along the penciled word, starting with the first letter. (Warning: Do not drive tacks through wiring insulation; secure the pushpins in the spaces between the strand’s twisted wires.)
