Initial Art

Want a fun new piece for your house that will fill those old frames you've had lying around? Well I've got a great project for you. I needed an extra piece to finish a wall in my living room. I wanted something with a little sparkle, so I created this "initial art".

Total time: Roughly 10 min.

Here's what you need:

  • Glitter
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint (any color(s) you want!)
  • Scissors
  • Fabric
  • A Frame
Here's what you do:

Step 1: Cut your fabric so it's an inch longer than the backing on your frame on all four sides. (Example: if your frame's backing is 5"x7" you'll cut your fabric to 7"x9")

Step 2: Decision time. If you want everything you paint to have glitter on it like the "Z" above, paint all of your letters/symbols. If you want some letters/symbols to have glitter and others not to like the example at the end of this post, only paint what will get glittered.

Step 3: Add glitter to your paint and brush off.

Step 4: Paint any additional letters that do not need glitter.

Step 5: Place fabric over frame backing and slide into frame. (Note: The backing should be enough to hold the fabric in place. If it slides around, just staple or tape the fabric down) You can add the glass when the paint is dry, or just leave it natural like I did.

Hope you enjoyed this DIY project! Get creative with yours, and let me know if you make one!
