DIY: Nursery Room Art

Are you ready for my easiest DIY to-date?
And in my opinion, maybe the most adorable too! 

My sister had her second baby, a girl, this past August! They named her Harper and she's just perfect!  
Because her older brother had been ruling the roost, I wanted to make her a little something 
~extra girly and extra special~ for her nursery.  

Here's a peak at the final product... 
Keep scrolling for the easy step-by-steps! 

1 large canvas & 2 smaller sized canvases
Acrylic paint colors of your choice (this can obviously be done for a baby boy too!)
Small stencil kit (I used one by Martha Stewart I found at Michael's)
Sponge paint brushes and painters tape
Wooden letters - 3 sets (1 lg for name, 2 small)
Hot glue gun

Prime and paint all your letters.  It may take a few rounds to thoroughly coat. 

While my letters were drying...I started stenciling the larger canvas with a light pink.

I covered the entire canvas with the same stencil.  
Don't worry if it's not perfect, you won't be able to see minor mistakes.

For the smaller canvases, I decided to go with simple stripes. 

Using a hot glue gun, apply the smaller letters on each of the smaller canvases.

I liked the off-center look, but you could surely place them wherever you would like! 

Apply the larger letters to the center of the the larger canvas. (Sorry, forgot to snap a pic!)
And here's the final product! 

Pink, girly and inexpensive to boot! 

Oh - and I've pinned this to my Pinterest page if you'd like to add it to your craft boards!
