A simple First-wall art on a Budget

Create personalized initial wall art with an old budget framework, fabric, and Mod-hodgepodge. I added Pearlized Sealer for an extra special touch.
I really love personalized crafts. When I type the letter “excited”, the I really. Perhaps, because it is both my first and last name – so it’s is doubly Horny? And is doubly a word?
I don’t know, but I know that I had this DIY initial wall art.
I didn’t make it for myself but as a gift for a friend. I used a frame and Mat that I got from a craft store on heavy discount (I love to do this). As an extra something special, I added Mod hodgepodge Pearlized Sealer for added “she-bang.”
It gives a really nice Shine without being too overwhelming. This really is to make simple wall art! Here’s how it’s done.
Personalized Initial wall art
Collect These Supplies

Recycling-frame with removable back
- fabric of your choice – enough to cover the back of the frame
FolkArt acrylic paint – Yellow, Citron, Teal
primer,
Mod hodgepodge gloss
Mod hodgepodge Pearlized white Sealer
wooden letters
craft glue
scissors
brush
wax paper
sandpaper

Sand the frame just in case there are any coatings on it, or to get rid of rough spots. Then the whole thing sprayed with white primer. I also have the back of the frame is removed and sprayed with white primer. Let it all dry.
Paint the entire picture with the color of your choice. It’s going to look beautiful, so be prepared. I almost cried when I saw all of the aqua – love.
Paint your letters with the color of your choice. I used a yellow lemon tree.
That one of my other favorite colors and looks so great with shades of blue. Isn’t it great?
Now that everything is painted, add the insert Mod smorgasbord on the back of the frame. Add a middle layer and smooth the fabric down. Let dry and cut the edges.
you might be wondering why I prepare didn’t the fabric. Because it’s hanging on the wall and I’m not worried about fraying or it is for furniture, there is no need to.
Paint a layer of Mod smorgasbord on the upper side of the fabric and allow to drylet.br> to stick to the letter and let them dry.
you can have your first wall art project, but I recommend you to add the pearlized spray for a little Shine. It’s pretty cool and I think you will like the effect in person. I know my friend will love it. Yay!
