How to Make a Monogram Canvas

Sometimes you just want a simple home decor item that comes together quickly – whether you are making it for yourself or for a gift!

My friends – this monogram canvas is that project. It’s so easy to put together with some simple supplies and Mod Podge.

Oh, and if you can’t tell, it uses a DENIM canvas. I was so excited to discover this denim canvas at my local Michaels!

I get bored with traditional white canvases, so this is a way to jazz your craft up a bit. It’s very easy to make!

Supplies

Gather These Supplies

Step Two

Choose the paper you’re going to use on your decorative wood piece.

Measure the size of the piece and then use your ruler along with your craft knife to cut to fit. Set the paper aside.

Step Three

Paint your wood piece with the color of your choice – I used white. You don’t need to paint the portion that is going to be underneath the paper; however, make sure to paint over edge a little in case the paper is slightly short.

Step Four

Paint your wood letter! Pick a color that compliments the scrapbook or printed paper you chose.

Step Five

Add a medium layer of Mod Podge Gloss to your wood piece.

Step Six

Place the trimmed paper down on the wood piece; smooth thoroughly and let dry for 15 – 20 minutes (hint: use a brayer to fully smooth the bubbles out of the paper).

Step Seven

Add a top coat of Mod Podge and let dry.

Step Nine

Glue your wood letter to the top of your wood piece – then cut and tie a ribbon to the top of the wood piece if you like. Let dry.

Step Ten

Add a bunch of glue to the back of the wood piece and attach to the canvas. Let dry for a few hours and you’re done.
