Canvases are one of those things that if you're willing to wait for a sale at your local craft/hobby store, you can get them at a really great price. Typically the thicker the canvas is the pricier it is, but with the holidays here, we've seen bulk pack thinner canvases at 10 for $20, which at $2 a canvas, is a pretty great deal for your own wall of artwork.
You can either cut the letters out of fabric or paper and glue/decoupage them on, or use a stencil to paint the letters onto the canvas. You don't even have to make a whole alphabet, or spell out an actual words, just have a large grouping of letters that make a bold statement, look great in a space that's soon to be filled with train sets and lego pieces! You could try out numbers or even punctuation for older children!
How would you create the letters shown above? Leave us your own inspirational thoughts in the comments below!
