Monogram Canvas

I managed to complete another project!! I wanted to change what I had on my dining room table and had seen a seasonal monogram at Hobby Lobby that I thought would look good on a painted canvas. Yes this is another easy peasy project, but they are just as good as the not so easy ones, right?
And I decided to play with PicMonkey to edit my photos and after playing with only 3 pictures I really like it!! So this is your warning that there'll be all kinds of different edits until I find what suits me!

Paint, foam brush
Hot Glue Gun

The exact term for the kind of fake foliage on the letter is eluding me right now but I liked it for spring/summer.  My paint is a metallic peridot green and the canvas is 12 x 12.  The letter was 40% off so it was about $4.79 and I used the good ole' weekly coupon on the canvas so it was about $ about a $10 project! And I love it!
Painted 2 coats of paint, took the ribbon loop off, hot glued the letter on and done! 
What kind of easy projects do you have going on?

Sharing at the fun places on my Link Parties Page!

Happy Thursday!

Nice idea, love the thought of putting these two things together. I've seen those letters but thought they were a bit small. Great way to beef them up a bit!
