The Easiest Craft Ever


Want an easy craft to brighten your home?  I found these kickin' prints on Etsy.  Dark Island City has some awesome prints of cities on maps & dictionaries and these lovelies are $10 each!  I just love them.  I thought about going international, but I decided to stick continental since we already have tons of Paris & London items in the home.  They're different, I love supporting "small businesses" (or etsy crafters), and sometimes I want something you can't get at Target (not that I am hatin' or anything).

The easiest craft part?  Since they're 8 1/2 x 11, they don't fit the normal frame size (8 x 10).  Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and other craft stores sell all sorts of canvas sizes, particularly 9 x 12.  Add some mod podge and a brush and you have all you need!

I start with putting a little mod podge on the canvas and place the print.

I then cover the print so it sticks on the canvas and it gives it a little sheen.


Ta-Da!  Now I have a lined staircase!

  27. Those are cute and lovely! I always have problems with 8.5X11 items, sometimes I can get away with trimming them, but otherwise I'm never quite sure what to do. Great solution!
