Excuse the picture quality, but I was a definite fan of how this project came out, and if baby #2 is a girl, she just might have a nursery built around something of the sort.
--Square canvas to fit your fleur-de-lis
--Wooden fleur de lis (found at Hobby Lobby)
--Acrylic paint (background and letters)
--Spray paint (optional--I used black spray paint for the letters)
-- 1 page scrapbook paper (thicker cardstock is better)
I should give these more like a recap since I don't have pictures of every step AND I changed my colors along the way.
Trace fleur de lis on scrapbook paper (and use the back to avoid pencil lines). Keep pencil tip as close to the edge of the wood as possible. You want a perfect fit. Carefully cut out fleur de lis next, remembering you want the paper to keep a close fit on the wood.
Paint background of canvas. Don't forget about the sides!
Paint letters, making sure to cover front, insides, and outsides. This is where my picture doesn't match final product. I was originally going to the letters pink but decided the canvas needed to be pink and the letter black. I spray painted over the pink (with much frustration and a black hand for the day, mind you).
Paint sides of wooden fleur de lis with color of choice as well.
To cover the fleur de lis, paint a layer of Mod Podge over the wood. Also cover the back of the scrapbook cutout with a layer of Mod Podge. Very carefully, start at the top and line up the scrapbook paper with the wood. Press out air bubbles as you lay the rest of the paper down. If necessary, you have a minute or so to lift up the paper and shift around if it won't lie correctly. When the scrapbook paper is in place and fully smooth, be sure to rub hands several times over the top to seal.
When completely dry, paint a layer of Mod Podge over the top and allow to dry completely.
When everything is dry, place layers on top of each other and hot glue down. You can use the back of the canvas for hanging or hot glue a ribbon on the back to provide a "hook."
Happy Crafting! (And we can't wait to meet that little girl Lindsey!)
