This DIY is super easy and fun. It works great for scripture or your favorite inspirational quote.
What you will need:
• Magazines to cut up
• A printed (or hand-written) bible verse or inspirational quote 7"x7"
• 12"x12" canvas
• Mod Podge and sponge brush
• (Optional) All-purpose stay-flat glue. I used YES! Paste.
• Paint in your favorite color
• Paint brush
• Extra white paper
Step 1: Cut images out of magazines. I chose flowers but you can do patterns, cat faces, etc. Whatever floats your boat.
Step 2: Glue the bible verse/quote to the canvas using the YES! Paste. You can also use Mod Podge for this step but I chose not to because I am still a victim of its wrinkles.
Step 3: Paint the sides of the canvas, making sure that the paint creeps up onto the front a little too. It doesn't need to be perfect. The mag cutouts will cover it up mostly.
Step 4: Start glueing your mag cutouts with the YES! Paste however you want. It doesn't need to be glued perfectly. We will go over EVERYTHING with the Mod Podge.
Step 5: Keep pasting the cutouts all over until you completely cover the canvas.
Step 6: Cut out 8 strips of white paper. Four at 1/4" and four at 1/8". Glue them down to frame the quote/scripture nicely. Cut off the edges.
Step 7: Cover the front and edges of the canvas with Mod Podge. Let dry.
Now just hang on your wall and voila! A creative and meaningful piece of art!
