+ DIY you+me sharpie print

I couldn’t believe how easy and quick this was! It looks like a real print I picked up at a market or ordered online. And the great thing is…you can make it say anything, and if you get sick of it… paint over it and do a different saying. After Valentine’s Day I’m definitely going to stick this up in my office.

All you need is:
pencil, thin, and thick sharpie
canvas – I found one for cheap at the thrift store, then painted over the previous paint job
stencils – mine is from Hobby Lobby

All you do is:
Mark out the center of the canvas and measure out where the letters will be evenly. Stencil the letters you want in pencil, then thin sharpie, then fill in with thick sharpie. Done!
