DIY: Song Lyric Wall Art

Since I've entered into the blogging world, I was very interested into D.I.Y. projects and crafts. They really bring out the handy girl inside of me. And the blogging world helped me with lots of fun, original ideas! The best and largest selection of them I've found on Pinterest . The best from blogs all over the world. That is how I bumped on this creative, original tutorial from - A Beautiful Mess Blog ( I think that I'm falling in love with it! It's so beautiful, and you can really find anything! ) Thank you for sharing this with us A Beautiful Mess Blog! xxx

The Tutorial:
Here's how I did it... Step 1. Find a paint by number or vintage painting that you like, but not one you adore (since you'll be painting over most of the design). A damaged piece works great, or a print you aren't too crazy about or ever a duplicate piece, like mine. Steps 2-3. Supplies needed: Artwork, Letter stickers (see 3 for the exact stickers I used. I purchased them at the art section of Michaels. You can also get them at hardware stores everywhere) White paint (in hindsight I would use spray paint, just a hint!), a paint brush and scissors. Step 4. Cut out and plot out your design. I know it's an extra step to cut out each letter, but it's much easier to create nice spacing this way! Step 5. Stick stickers. Place them as perfectly or imperfectly as you fancy! Steps 6-8. Cover the entire art piece with a coat (or two) of white paint. I wish I would have used spray paint because my letters bled a tiny bit. Spray paint is preferable. Step 9. Allow your paint to dry. I layed my piece on the front porch for an hour. Next, peel the letters off carefully. Step 10. Yay!
You did it. Enjoy your new piece of art! 

[the end!]
