I found THIS (above) little DIY project on pinterest and knew I needed to have one of these canvases in my own home!  She didn't really give a tutorial so I tried to mimic what she did.  I think it turned out pretty well.  It's not perfect and I am OK with that.  Let me share with you how to make one for yourself!  Oh, and in case you're wondering, the numbers on our canvas (below) are our wedding anniversary!  Just celebrated 4 years!  Woot Woot!
15"x30" CANVAS.  You can use any size really, depending on the size of the font numbers you choose.  On sale at Joanns for $7.99.STARDOS STENCIL, size 1000, free to print here.PENCIL.PAINT. I used Martha Stewart's Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint in Beetle Black. $1.99 at Joanns. PAINT BRUSH. Actually I used two.  A 1/4" rounded tip soft comfort brush ($2.99 at Joanns) and a 1/4" flat ox hair stroke brush I already had on hand.So, the total cost of the project:  $12.97.  Awesome.
